    I think it has to be Doom.

    More than anything I’d love to see a Triumph and Torment rendition.

    Doom and Strange together in Hell!

    U and I both. And with it being groundbreaking in the film industry, its also sets it apart from all the god awful remakes and reboots hollywood is in. MCU is as original as it gets as a whole

    What would be great is if they introduce Doom, Kang, Galactus, Mephisto, and Apocalypse/ Sinister in separate movies, but then the big finale is Doom having taken all those powers for his own as he is known to do. I'm giddy with the possibilities.

    I always think of the Russo Brothers wanting to do a Secret Wars movie and what they would look like on screen.

    I don't know how you could do Doom justice. In the comics the mask plays but it doesn't play in cinema. There haven't been many masked characters who've been able to emote; I can only think of Edward Norton as Baldwin IV in KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. I could see a long-game where Doom has his character well-established before his facial scarring and then making it more of an immediate event within his cinematic arc -- but anyway you slice it if you don't reveal his face (and arguably you shouldn't) it's going to be a tough character for film to pull off.

    Its a challenge, but it can be done. And absolutely YES! they have to establish Victor before they can have a DOOM.

    Oh yeah, Darth Vader. He sure had a mask didn't he?

    I think the key would be the voice. It can't be muffled like its actually coming through the mask.

    I am thinking someone with a very powerful voice. Maybe James Earl Jones or Lawrence Fishburne?

    Oh wait...

    Vader/ Thulsa Doom is too old to risk for the role.
    Fishburn was already miscast as Silver Surfer and is also Perry White.
    But god-tier choices.

    I'm not good at this, but I'm thinking:
    Ralph Fiennes for some reason.



    wow -- just realized Mychael Nyqvist passed away. Damn, RIP

    Ya i was joking with those guys as they have both done big voice overs, Jones as Vader and Fishburne as the Silver Surfer.

    Doom needs some one with a very steely calm and yet menacing voice. That little touch of crazy or manic but not too much. I would like to hear Jack Nicholson read for it doing something more like the role he played in A Few Good Men as the determined but unrelenting General.

    derp my bad I see that now.

    And I'm already taking my Ralph suggestion off the board because, like @Mariah Larry says, they need to establish Victor first, and Ralph is too old, imo (depends on how old they make Reed).

    You're not going to like this right away or ever but hang on, hang on. What? About?

    Eddie Redmayne.

    Traditional options would include whichever Skarsgaard wars Tarzarn arn thart larst warn. Alexander? He's duller than shit though, outside the film with Peña and Thompson. Michael Shannon would be a coup if he wasn't so American. You know what? VENOM will probably dry up so maybe Hardy? He does great mask.

    Shannon would be great.
    Agree on the Skääärsguaäärd; dude's lame.
    Pass on Hardy, who I love.
    Hard pass on Eddie, who I'm fond of for less alpha, more femine/Alan Alda/Kevin Klein-esque roles. That would a Lex Eisenberg level mistake, imo.

    Lee Pace has a good voice. He’s audible chocolate imo.

    I also like Frank Langella as a possible voice for Dr. Doom.
