After his Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness cameo, Emily Blunt wants to see more of John Krasinski’s Reed Richards in the MCU.
Emily Blunt hopes to see John Krasinski as… Fantastic fourReed Richards back in the MCU. The Real Couple Was Fans’ Best Choice to Play Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman in the Upcoming Marvel Studios’ Fantastic four reboot video. The project is scheduled for release in early 2025 and has WandaVision’s Matt Shakman as director, but other than these details, no other official information has been released about the highly anticipated blockbuster.
Ever since Marvel Studios was a mom during the casting process for Fantastic four, fans continue to share their picks to play Marvel’s First Family in the MCU. Several reports have claimed to reveal Kevin Feige and his team’s shortlist for the superhero squad, including: you‘s Penn Badgley as Reed Richards and Jodie Comer as Sue Storm. Amid this, Krasinski and Blunt continue to lead the pack as the public’s choice to headline the new Fantastic Four. But while Blunt signing the role is a little more insecure, her husband as Reed Richards isn’t so far-fetched, considering he’s already played Earth-838 Mister Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Krasinskis Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness appearance was rather short. He was part of Earth 838’s Illuminati, who was eventually brutally slaughtered by Wanda Maximoff. Despite his death, Blunt expresses her interest in seeing Krasinski again as Mister Fantastic in a new interview with HeyUGuys (through the direct). Read her full quote below:
I was very happy for him because I think he is a big fan. And I understand why it’s such a fiery, passionate religion for people. It’s now a big part of our movie history. So he was excited… Well, I hope [we can see him in the role again]. I hope so. You never know.
Can Krasinski really return as Reed Richards from the MCU?
Despite the death of Krasinski’s Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessit would be pretty easy to bring it back for the Fantastic four movie. The concept of variants and the burgeoning multiverse allows Marvel Studios to introduce Reed Richards’ Sacred Timeline version, which is exactly like Earth-838’s, but with a different fate and even an origin story. Given the scarcity of information about Shakman’s film, it’s still hard to gauge how the franchise approaches Marvel’s First Family. They can choose to go for a much younger version of the superhero team, knowing that they will play an important role in the future universe. But it’s nice to know that if Feige and Shakman ever decide to bring Krasinski back into the role, there’s an easy way to do it.
For now, it’s best for everyone to wait for the official Marvel Studios announcement about who will be playing Mister Fantastic and the rest of the Fantastic Four in the MCU. Despite calls from fans, and even Blunt himself, to see Krasinski back as Reed Richards, the franchise has been known to go against popular choices when casting their characters, choosing instead who they see as the best actor. for the role. The good thing is that if Marvel Studios ends up going a different route for the main version of the beloved hero, there’s always a way to bring Krasinski back as another variation of the character anyway.
