Chris Evans as Johnny Storm? Have we gone into an alternate timeline? No, but perhaps Marvel is about to.
You have probably heard the rumors that Chris Evans is coming back to the MCU. One of those rumored appearances was for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, according to the folks at Giant Freakin Robot, Evans is being eyed for two separate roles in the Doctor Strange sequel.
According their source who has come through for them in the past, Evans will play Captain Hydra in the movie. This is something that was reported as a rumor previously, so that part isn’t too new. However, the outlet also says that Evans will reprise his role as Johnny Storm from the old Fantastic Four movies. Now, no one is saying that Evans will become the MCU’s Johnny Storm, there is just no way. However, Evans appearing as Storm in the craziness of the Multiverse, considering all the other madness we have heard already, kinda makes sense.
Essentially Marvel would be paying Evans for one appearance in Doctor Strange 2, but have him playing at least two characters. I say at least, because there is nothing to indicate Evans won’t show up as an alt Captain America also, even if he is Captain Hydra for a time. Now, as always we treat all rumors with a grain of salt, but I currently have no reason to doubt this information. GFR‘s source has come through before (Cheadle in Falcon and the Winter Soldier), and the Evans rumors began elsewhere before this.
I have to be honest and say that the idea of bringing in the Fox X-Men and Fantastic Four Universes, and the Sony Marvel Universe all into the MCU worries me. However, it is happening, in fact it has already happened, and we have to trust Marvel. Evans being back in the MCU, whether for one or two movies is great. He might not be alone either?
GFR says that they have also heard Jessica Alba has been approached to make a cameo as Sue Storm. That doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen, Alba may not be keen. The outlet also speculates on whether the other former Fantastic Four members could show up? Likely only for a similar cameo appearance as a nod to fans?
What do you think, would it be cool to see Chris Evans as Johnny Storm, even as a cameo. What other Multiversal madness do you want see in the Doctor Strange sequel? Leave your thoughts below.
