Mr. Fantastic’s casting in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might have accidentally revealed a key that Marvel Studios was wishing to keep quiet. Reed Richards, much better called Mr. Fantastic, was represented by John Krasinski in Doctor Strange 2, who had actually long been fan-cast to play the wise and elastic leader of the Fantastic Four. Krasinski is best recognized for his work with The Office, Jack Ryan, as well as A Quiet Place, and also Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness marked his opening night in a superhero film.
For lots of, Krasinski is completely cast as Mr. Fantastic as well as must remain to play the hero in the MCU. However, his debut was not met with overwhelming reviews, with the cameo appearance of “the most intelligent man alive” in Doctor Strange 2 coming under attack as a result of a few of his unintelligent choices, most especially when he revealed Black Bolt’s powers to Wanda, bring about his colleague’s gruesome death. Still, Krasinksi is the excellent fit for the MCU’s Mr. Fantastic, and his appearance in The Multiverse of Madness might have accidentally revealed a casting key.
Krasinski was the second option to play Mr. Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The most likely factor for Marvel desiring to cast Craig for The Multiverse of Madness is that they wanted to keep the “real” casting for Mr. Fantastic a secret for the upcoming Fantastic Four flick.
Doctor Strange 2 was basically a trial run for John Krasinski as Mr. Fantastic. His cameo was a surprise minute in The Multiverse of Madness, even though the personality may not have lived up to his “smartest guy active” name. Still, following his appearance as Mr. Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, John Krasinski in the Fantastic Four motion picture is probably most likely since his fan-casting has become a reality.
Given Mr. Fantastic’s death in Doctor Strange 2, there is an enigma around whether Krasinski might go back to play an alternating universe variation of the personality once again. The MCU has not been consistent with whether alternate variations of the same character look the same or otherwise. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, the 3 Peter Parker variants were played by Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and also Tobey Maguire. However The Multiverse of Madness made it clear that different variants of a character can be played by the same star, with Benedict Cumberbatch playing 4 versions of Doctor Strange. Regardless of the death of the alternating cosmos Earth-838’s Mr. Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, John Krasinski might viably return as an additional world’s Reed Richards in a future Fantastic Four task.
