With Jonathan Majors’ recent firing by Marvel, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in desperate need for a new main villain. They could cast a new actor as Kang, but more likely they will bring in a totally new bad guy to become the focus of the rest of Marvel’s “Multiverse Saga.” A lot of people think that will be Doctor Doom, easily the most famous and iconic Marvel Comics villain who has yet to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Marvel regained the rights to the Doctor Doom character when they acquired 20th Century Fox.)

But what if there’s been a villain pulling the strings behind the scenes at Marvel all along? What if Doctor Doom has been a part of the MCU from the very beginning but simply never appeared on camera? Our latest video speculates about how the MCU could introduce Doom not as a brand-new character but as an integral part of the universe from the very beginning. Watch it below:
