Krasinski has been a firm favorite of fan casters
Rumors regarding Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness are coming in by the dozen, and the latest might cause a lot of buzz. Unconfirmed leaks regarding the upcoming Marvel Studios project is suggesting that John Krasinski (The Office, A Quiet Place) has been roped in to star as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, aka the leader of the Fantastic Four and a valuable member of the Marvel superheroes. Krasinski had been fan casted for the role for many years, and it may just be coming to fruition.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to be one of the most ambitious projects of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie has Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) dealing with the repercussions of the botched spell he casted in Spider-Man: No Way Home. He has to assemble a team that specializes in mastery of the mystic arts to restore the balance of our universe. But travelling across various universes is bound to happen, and many popular Hollywood stars are expected to cameo in the movie as variants of the Marvel superheroes.
Krasinski’s involvement was leaked by The Illuminerdi, who is a trusted source when it comes to such rumors. They state that he will play a variant of Reed Richards, and will appear in the movie. Additionally, Krasinski’s wife and actress Emily Blunt was fan casted as Susan Storm, aka Invisible Woman. Emily quickly shut down all rumors, but John had been enthusiastic about appearing in the MCU, especially after he almost became Captain America.
Doctor Strange 2 recently underwent reshoots and just wrapped it up. Sources claim that this was Marvel’s effort to include more cameos. Especially after Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s return in Spider-Man: No Way Home, anything can happen thanks to the multiverse.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will release in theatres on May 4.
