If Kieran Culkin plays this highly expected Marvel supervillain, fans will feel on top of the world.

Fans have been waiting for Doctor Doom to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a long time. And now, it seems like they found just the perfect actor for the role.

Victor von Doom is a supervillain and the ruler of the fictional nation of Latveria, who is primarily associated with the Fantastic Four and is one of their most iconic adversaries.

However, many times he was a global threat that required the help of the other superheroes.

Dr. Doom plays an important part in the Marvel comic arc Secret Wars. The Avengers movie that will be released after Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, is Avengers: Secret Wars.

However, it is very unlikely that Doctor Doom will be the main villain of the movie. It is almost certain that Kang The Conqueror will take his part.

But still, fans are eagerly expecting the villain to appear in the MCU in the near future. And the character of his scale can easily become a villain of the whole new saga as it was with Thanos before, and Kang right now.

A great opportunity to introduce the menacing villain is the Fantastic Four reboot in the MCU, as he is primarily the antagonist of this team. So, it is only a question of who would be able to portray such a dangerous character.

A fan started a discussion on Reddit, suggesting that the Succession star Kieran Culkin might be just the right man to do this job.

Kieran Culkin definitely could be a good choice for the role of Doctor Doom due to his acting range that he proved to be able to deliver.

We should also remind you that Doctor Doom has already appeared on the big screen and not just once but twice.

The first portrayal was in the 2005 film Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel. In those films, Doom was played by Julian McMahon.

A reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise was released in 2015 with Toby Kebbell portraying Doctor Doom.

While the last iteration of the character was received with mixed reaction, the first portrayal was good in many fans' opinion.

However, it is still not satisfactory enough for a bigger threat that Doctor Doom might become in the MCU, and Kieran Culkin is definitely a good candidate to consider.
