They don’t specify which role he might be up for, but it’s not really hard to guess.
Ever since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, we’ve been waiting to see what Marvel Studios will do with The Fantastic Four and X-Men.
This has lead to a load of fans demanding that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt be cast as the Fantastic Four members.
It would be perfect and Krasinski has an interesting relationship with the MCU.
It was revealed that he was one of the actors who screen tested to play Captain America before Chris Evans was cast.
I’d love to see him play Mr. Fantastic. It’s the perfect role for him and it would be great to see him act alongside his wife.
