Fox Is Working On A ‘Silver Surfer’ Spinoff Film And Putting A Rush On It

Since the announcement of the potential  20th Century Fox-Disney merger, many people have been waiting with bated breath to see many popular Marvel characters such as the X-men and the Fantastic Four join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even with deal in the works Fox is still kicking out projects for the properties it owns. Deadpool 2 arrives in March, X-Men:Dark Phoenix in December and The New Mutants which has been pushed back to next year.  But that does not mean that Fox is slowing down by any means in trying to push out more films before the acquisition is complete.

According to   The Hollywood Reporter solo movies for both Doctor Doom and the Silver Surfer are in the works, with the Silver Surfer being written by Brian K. Vaughn of Saga and Runaways fame Here is the thing, the studio is in a rush to get these out and is reportedly moving at “100 miles per hour” to get complete.

“It does not affect this project in any way, shape or form is what I was told,” Brian Michael Bendis tells the trade after signing up to work on a Kitty Pryde movie with Deadpool director Tim Miller. “At least at the moment, it’s certainly decisions over my pay-grade if it ends up doing so.”
It’s “business as usual” at Fox according to one  insider, “We actually have way more in development and production in Marvel IP than at any point in the history of the studio. There’s been zero slowdown on that front given Disney.”  
It is going to be extremely interesting to see what if any of these properties see the light of day with Fox and what may or may not hit the big screen by 2019.

Fox is for some reason developing a Doctor Doom movie

WHY???? Just WHY is this even going to happen. Well you know what let me go back and try to be as objective as possible. At a Producer’s panel for The FX show Legion at Comic-con in San Diego, its showrunner Noah Hawley just officially announced that he is developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox.

Hawley said during the panel, “I’m developing a film for Fox and I’ll just say two words, Doctor, Doom.”

This has caught many Marvel fans COMPLETELY OFF GUARD. Doctor Doom being one of Marvel’s most iconic villains has not been done justice in theaters. He has been featured in all three  of 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four films the 2005, 2007 (Rise of the Silver Surfer) and the 2015 reboot,  but he has not possessed both the true genius and menace that fans have come to know.

We want to know what do you all the readers think of this? Is it a good idea to do a Doctor Doom solo film or should he be included in the next reboot that is being talked about for the Fantastic Four.
