    but why would anyone care about his life? he doesn't exist yet to the non-comic book reading audience. why would anyone pay to see it; without first properly introducing the Fantastic Four. it makes as much sense as giving Thanos his own movie. the only reason it almost worked for Magneto is because his origin and the X-Men's are linked. plus they had already established Magneto as a driving force (and charismatic thanks for McKellan) within a larger story. Doom doesn't have that. his story does not intersect with the Fantastic Four enough (the reason why they made him a victim of the cosmic storm in Tim Story's movie).
    60% percent of the time, Ant-Man beats Doom every time

    Well Blade and Ironman didn't exist to the non-comic book reading audiences before their film debuts and they seem to do quite well at the box office.

    I've said a few times (including in the OP) that a Dr. Doom solo movie would need to be a sequel to a Fantastic Four reboot and part of a trilogy (the third film being Fantastic Four VS Dr. Doom).

    Yes, but only if they go with something really unconventional. If the movie revolved around something like the UN reacting negatively to this dictator rising to power through some really unconventional means, but when a journalist takes a team into Latvia and discovers that things aren't what it seems, then yeah...I think we could really have something.

    Something like District 9, where you can't really pin down what this movie is unless you watch it. It'd be tough to market and I think the budget would have to be very conservative. I don't foresee something like Marvel Studios doing a movie like this, where their main focus is developing the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, Fox has the Dr. Doom rights and I wouldn't count on them to make that type of comic book related movie.
