This may, or may not be a surprise to many fans. However John Krasinski says there are no plans for him to continue as Reed Richards in the MCU. Speaking at the Jack Ryan Season 3 press event, Krasinski was asked by The Wrap if there were any discussion to carry on in the MCU? The star says no. However, also added how much fun it was to do Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“There aren’t any discussions at all, the only discussion I had was actually in the second-to-last week of ‘Jack Ryan,’” Krasinski said. “Kevin Feige called and said would you ever fly to L.A. and play in our sandbox for a day? I was honored to do it. I flew right from Budapest when we wrapped and went right to the ‘Doctor Strange’ set. I’m a big fan of all those characters and that world, so to get to play in that sandbox for one day was a real thrill.”
“It’s totally insane. To be in a room with all those people, and again to be a part of that narrative is crazy,” he added. “But yeah, being turned into spaghetti wasn’t my end goal in life as far as how it goes in the Marvel universe, but you know what it was fun nonetheless.”
Fantastic Four is coming from director Matt Shakman, and fans have often wondered whether Krasinsksi would return or not? For now you’ve got to imagine that’s a no if Krasinski has had no discussions. We know casting is underway for Fantastic Four and may even have been concluded. Of course, we also know that actors are actors are often told to lie if asked any questions. So it is absolutely possible Krasinski is lying through his teeth as per Marvel’s request. I have a feeling that’s not the case though. That we are going get a brand new Reed Richards as the mainstay in the MCU. Though, this all remains to be seen.
