Now that the “ Fantastic Four ” will be introduced to the MCU, fans are asking John Krasinski to play Reed Richards as Mr. Fantastic.
What started out as a joke among fans has taken a huge turn over the years, and Krasinski himself has already revealed that he is interested in staring in the adaptation.
With that in mind, an Instagram user posted some amazing fan art imagining Krasinski as the team’s founding hero.
During an interview with Total Film, Krasinski was asked about the possibility and said that:
“I would love to be a part of the Marvel Universe. I love these movies because they are fun and very well done. I have no idea what Marvel is up to, but if the people in charge see me as Mr. Fantastic, I ask you to continue, because I would love to play with you.
It should be remembered that several fans are campaigning for Emily Blunt, Krasinski’s wife, to be chosen as Susan Storm, the invisible woman.
As Marvel Studios has yet to announce the cast of the future adaptation, it remains to be hoped that the couple will vie for the roles.
For those who don’t remember, the ‘Fantastic Four’ were last adapted for theaters in 2015, starring Michael B. Jordan (Human Torch), Kate Mara (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Mister Fantastic) and Jamie Bell (Chose)).
Directed by Josh Trank, the film was a critical and public disappointment, grossing just $ 167 million at the global box office, on a budget of $ 120 million.
