According to Jeff Sneider, who reported on Harrison Ford’s involvement in Thunderbolts before the trades confirmed his casting, Adam Driver (Kylo Ren in Star Wars) may be in the running to play either Mr. Fantastic or Doctor Doom in the MCU.
However, Sneider noted that “an unproven source, and supposedly, just a meeting. I guess I can’t even discuss hypotheticals these days without causing a stir”. Considering the MCU delays, casting for this movie is still a long way off. Then again, Marvel tends to secure talent early, just like Mahershala and BLADE.”
But, it is easy to conclude that Marvel would be interested in having Adam Driver play Doctor Doom, the pivotal franchise villain of the Star Wars franchise, after all the discussion about how well he played Kylo Ren/Ben Solo in Star Wars.
As one of Marvel Comics Universe’s most cunning, complex, and powerful villains, Victor Von Doom is a major player. A key part of Doom’s casting will be the upcoming 2025 Fantastic Four reboot, and Avengers: Secret Wars event, as well as the countless crossovers and cameo appearances that could occur.
Besides Adam Driver, (John Krasinski) and (Penn Badgley) are also rumored to have been considered for the role of Mr. Fantastic.
How do you feel about Adam Driver as Mr. Fantastic? Or do you prefer him in the role of Doctor Doom?
MCU’s Fantastic Four is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2025.
