It’s being reported that Adam Driver is being eyed to play Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie that Marvel Studios is making. This report comes to us via industry insider Jeff Sneider. He was on The Hot Mic podcast with John Rocha, and during the episode, Jeff revealed that Driver is could be cast to play Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
However, Jeff also stated that he could be up for the role of Doctor Doom in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. However, we’ve heard that Doctor Doom has already been cast in the MCU and could be turning up in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
One of the reasons why I’m inclined to believe that The Rise Of Skywalker actor might be cast as Reed Richards is because Jeff Sneider has been proven to be correct with his scoops in the past. He was the first person to report that Harrison Ford is going to be playing General Ross in the Thunderbolts movie. It’s since been revealed that Ford will also be playing the character in Captain America: New World Order.

It’s going to be interesting to see what ends up happening. There have been a bunch of names connected to the role of Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie. We’ve already seen John Krasinski play the character in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. However, there have been multiple reports that he won’t be returning to play the role. That said, Emily Blunt did seem to tease that her husband (Krasinski) might be returning to play Mr Fantastic.
I cannot wait to see what’s going to happen with this movie. We already know that the film is going to be directed by WandaVision director, Matt Shakman. There’s still no cast for the movie yet, which is a bit odd. Marvel fans all over the world are very eager to know who’s going to be starring in this movie. As for Doctor Doom, I’m pretty certain that the role has already been cast as we’ve been told that he will be involved in the upcoming Black Panther movie.
