Mads Mikkelsen reportedly in talks for Doctor Doom role and we couldn’t be more excited!
Casting choices have the ability to cause both irritation and excitement among fans – we have seen it time after time in both movies and video games – but if rumors prove accurate, Mads Mikkelsen would make an ideal Doctor Doom.
The Fantastic Four reboot has generated intense enthusiasm since its announcement, sending MCU fans scrambling for information as each nugget of news makes their rounds. In recent days, there was exciting speculation about Pedro Pascal taking up Dr. Reed Richards – some may harken back to 2005’s Fantastic Four film and its portrayal of Ioan Gruffudd as Mister Fantastic; other options like John Krasinski are already there with potential leads ready for consideration as actors with experience playing variants of him could play his part.
John Krasinski played him well; Pedro just doesn’t strike me as being suitable,” they commented on John Campea’s YouTube channel when hearing of any speculation concerning this role he could take up as Reed Richards; Matt Smith may even take it up; yet Mads Mikkelsen could prove more suitable due to playing Kaecilius from Doctor Strange as his role could prevent him getting this part?
Not unexpectedly, actors often assume different roles within one universe – we saw this happen with Gemma Chan who starred both as Captain Marvel and in Eternals. Still, given how passionately fans have received any reports regarding Mikkelsen possibly taking on Doctor Doom roles, perhaps Marvel will heed their fans and make an intelligent choice regarding Mikkelsen playing him?
