However, according to speculations, he would be playing Dr. Doom’s role in the MCU, which is what makes fans disappointed about the same. The rumor being speculated is that the Latverian Monarch is a Conquistadors’ descendent though, if that happens, that would alter the reality of what Doom was in the canon.

I agree that it shouldn’t be changed, but isn’t Javier Bardem European?

Latveria is meant to be a land-locked, Eastern European country.

… but Doom's Roma. They really gonna erase another Roma character and reimagine an Eastern European country as a Mediterranean one?

All these great actors and actresses finally hopping on, but I think that the steam is running out at this point. I may be wrong.

Javier Bardem In The MCU Family
According to what the source has speculated, the 53-year-old actor would be playing Nathaniel Essex, better known as Mister Sinister, as the character had been hinted to be appearing/ referenced in several Fox X-Men-related films, including X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants, and Deadpool 2.
He is reported to play a major villain role in the MCU however no other specifications have been revealed to date which could mean that he might play the notoriously adversarial character of Dr. Doom. He is one of the amazing artists that would fit to excel in this character though the final decision lies in the hands of Marvel Studios.
