It’s being reported that Doctor Doom is making his way to the MCU.
However, Marvel is obviously working towards their next big event. After Thanos has received great acclaim as a villain and a character, their first task is crafting a villain who can live up the Mad Titan.
Although there are a few years to go yet before the MCU works its way up to another Infinity War level threat, the seeds have to be sown early.
Jeremy Conrad from MCU Cosmic has provided lots of information about Marvel’s upcoming plans. Of course, there are mere rumors at present, but they’re certainly interesting ones.
MCU Cosmic suggests its highly likely that Doctor Doom will be the next big bad of the franchise.
Of course, Doctor Doom is synonymous with the Fantastic Four and has been out of the MCU’s hands up until recently. After Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox, characters from the X-Men and the Fantastic Four can slowly start working their way into the MCU.
Conrad is adamant Marvel can give Dr.Doom ‘the respect he deserves’, after a couple of failed attempts over at Fox. To achieve this more naturally, a slow build towards the character is said to take place – similarly to Thanos’ story.

Specifically, Conrad has heard that the first step involves bringing Lucia Von Bardas into the MCU franchise. Von Bardas isn’t a particularly exciting addition on her own, but what’s interesting to note is that she eventually took over the Dr Doom mantle.
Based in Latveria, Von Bardas takes over after Doom is ousted as ruler of the country.
Introducing Latveria into the MCU is a big step towards Doom’s entrance. Von Bardas could be introduced as the prime minister of the country and could even be Doom’s first victim, with his ascent to power.
It’s not exactly known when or even which project Latveria could make its first appearance. What is hopeful, however, is that Marvel may make a better attempt at integrating Doom into the world before he really steps out of the shadows.
