Black Panther 2 May Battle Doctor Doom As Villain!
Now that Marvel Studios has the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four mythologies back from Fox, it’s assumed it’ll be a priority for them to get Doctor Doom into the MCU. Read on for more about King T’Challa battling Doctor Doom in Black Panther 2
CelebnMovies247.com reports that Doctor Doom is one of the biggest supervillains in the Marvel universe.
Not only that, Doctor Doom, the Fantastic Four’s main villain, could make a lot of noise in the franchise.
Now we are hearing that Charles Murphy has reported that it’s possible Victor Von Doom could serve as the antagonist of the upcoming Black Panther 2.
What we are hearing is that Doom is looking to expand his empire by invading parts of Africa, which will ultimately put him at odds with Black Panther when he attempts to conquer Wakanda. This will force Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa to battle Doctor Doom.
Murphy notes that the main inspiration for BP2 will likely be Black Panther: Doomwar, the comic book event in which Doom tried to take over Wakanda in order to get at its supply of Vibranium, particularly for its mystical properties. Though the comics storyline features crossovers with the X-Men and Deadpool, Murphy speculates that Marvel would streamline it in order to keep the focus on T’Challa and his allies.
It’s worth wondering whether the Fantastic Four would show up in the film, considering their deep connection to Doom. Black Panther also debuted in an FF comic on the page, so it would be neat to invert that for the MCU.
This makes sense for the MCU to introduce an X-Men character and bring the Fantastic Four into the fold of the MCU. First Doom, then The Fantastic Four, Storm and more X-Men.
It was also said that Black Panther 2 would also introduce X-Men’s Storm into the MCU as well. Let’s NOT forget that there are rumors that Shuri will take over for King T’Challa in Black Panther 2 or 3.
