The truth about the cast of all Fantastic Four is still unknown and a mystery. While the cast of Reed Richard was revealed in Doctor Strange 2, it wasn’t enough to prove that the same person was coming as Mr. Fantastic in the Earth version of MCU 616.
The Fantastic Four movie is also still unknown, will tell the story of its origins, or will quickly get a fast track to become a team like the Avengers. The MCU’s first film for Marvel’s First Family made waves at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, as it was announced to be released in November 2024 to kick off Phase 6.
Based on Doctor Strange 2 which embraced the Multiverse and introduced Reed Richard, many fans wanted Krasinski to get the chance to fully explore Reed Richards by playing the Earth-616 version of the Fantastic Four.
John Krasinski Literally in the MCU Fantastic Four Movies?
During an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star John Krasinski discussed a possible return as Reed Richards in Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four.
While talking to Fallon about Marvel Studios’ announcement at San Diego Comic-Con 2020, Krasinski said he couldn’t say anything about the upcoming Fantastic Four film starting Phase 6.
Krasinski kept his appearance in Doctor Strange 2 a secret for perhaps more than two years after he reported his first encounter with Marvel Studios in mid-2020.
It was kept so secret that the actress starring Elizabeth Olsen even passed a lie detector test when she said she had never met him, even though her Scarlet Witch turned her Reed Richards into fantastic spaghetti in the film.
Whatever happens, anything can happen. Most likely, filming for the film will take place sometime in 2023, which means that Marvel could be planning to make a casting decision in late 2022, potentially even announcing it at D23 in September.
