And the problem with using another villain is other Doom and Galactus, the FF's rogues gallery starts getting kinda of weak. So if you are going to use a villain who isn't Doom, they are going to have to do something to make that villain compelling, not just seem like a place holder for Dr. Doom. Lizard is more interesting then most FF villains, Spidey just has a better rogues gallery, so the film makers have more villain options with Spidey. I like Annihilus, but that's more due to Annihilation than any of the stories he has appeared in the FF title. I also like Ultimate Mole Man better then 616 Mole Man, so they make a movie with him as the central villain. I think they should take a lot of elements from Ultimate Mole Man. Making a movie where say Red Ghost seems like a disaster, considering how dull his character is. Plus if Doom doesn't appear in the first film, his presence should be felt, he should be a growing threat in the back ground.
Guess I was thinking of the FF's domestic gross - which was more than FC, but world wide FC did pass the first FF.
I would not mind Doom being in the deep in the shadows in an FF reboot, like I assume Osborn was in TAS...
