Doug is a supporting antagonist in the 2019 Marvel film Spider-Man: Far From Home. He was a former Stark Industries employee who is aligned with Mysterio.
Doug once worked for Tony Stark, but later developed a certain hatred towards him for his arrogant nature and left Stark Industries. He was even angered to hear that Tony's heroic image as Iron Man has become more popular to the world as Tony actually sacrificed himself to destroy Thanos and the Black Order in order to save the universe.
As such, Doug and several other ex-Stark Industries employees (including William Ginter Riva, Victoria Snow, Janice Lincoln and Guterman) joined Mysterio, who has formulated a plot in staging terrorist attacks through holograms of the Elementals around the world so he can present himself as a hero to the public by 'foiling' these attacks in order to surpass Iron Man as the greatest superhero of all time. They also learned that Tony gave one of his intelligence systems called E.D.I.T.H. to Spider-Man that can be used to facilitate Mysterio's plans further. After defeating Molten Man, Mysterio tricked Spider-Man into giving him E.D.I.T.H. at a bar.
Following Spider-Man's departure from the bar, Mysterio celebrates with his crew, and orders Doug to hand a bottle as a memento. Doug then watches in glee with his other cohorts as Mysterio announces his next step to stage another Elemental attack in London with the Elemental Fusion. However, Spider-Man learns of the plot and was able to foil the plot and defeat Mysterio, much to Doug's dismay.
With Mysterio dead, it can be implied that Doug escaped away with the rest of Mysterio's crew and doctored footage to expose Spider-Man's identity and frame him for the attacks and Mysterio's death before selling it to J. Jonah Jameson, who broadcasts this to the world, much to Spider-Man's complete distraught.
It is unknown what has happened to Doug afterwards.
