John Krasinski is becoming the choice of the fans for Reed Richard aka Mister Fantastic. His name was never connected to MCU universe but he recently said he would love that to turn into reality. His interest in Fantastic Four also stems from fans drawing fan art of him as Reed Richards. He said “I only just became aware of it recently. Somebody just said it today that I’m being drawn like him, which I didn’t know. I’ve seen the fan art… No, it’s one of those things where, I haven’t really been a part of something where the Twitter-verse, the internet, get behind you for a role, certainly of that calibre. I love the Marvel movies, I love everything Kevin Feige does. The dude’s a genius, so in him I trust, and if he wants me to do something like that, I would love it.”
With Disney controlling most of the rights for comic book properties now, Fantastic Four has the potential for being brought back into the light. The four superheroes are one of the oldest and well know superhero team. While Josh Trank blew the 2015 version of Fantastic Four. Kevin Feige and his team can bring it back. The new version of Fantastic Four is nowhere close. Yet one can hope they do it right this time and our bets are on Krasinski.
Reports say that Krasinski was also in line to play Captain America but Chris Evans beat him to it. That wasn't enough to crush Krasinski to someday be a part of the MCU team. It may seem to be finally coming true. Krasinski's recent film, Quiet Place Part II is making its way to popularity and attention. Casting Krasinski would be a good move on the part of MCU. Let's hope for the best!
