It’s being rumoured that John Krasinski is in talks with Marvel Studios to play a leading role in their upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
Marvel fans have been clamouring to see Krasinski play Mr. Fantastic, a.k.a. Reed Richards, for years.
He is perfect for the role, and his wife, Emily Blunt, would be perfect to play Richards’ wife, Susan Storm.
There’ve been rumours that the couple has been in talks with Marvel for quite some time now.
It’s being suggested yet again by a supposed insider source on Twitter that Marvel Studios and John Krasinski are in talks right now.
Roger Wardell on Twitter claimed that both Krasinski and Giancarlo Esposito are in talks to star in leading roles in the Fantastic Four movie.
John Krasinksi might be cast as Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four movie
Here’s what Wardell wrote about the upcoming Fantastic Four movie in full:
MCU’s Fantastic Four and X-Men will be primarily based on their Earth-1610 counterparts. John Krasinski and Giancarlo Esposito in talks to portray the leading roles. Ultimatum WILL NOT be adapted to the MCU.
Seeing both Krasinski and Esposito in the Fantastic Four movie would be incredible.
I’m not entirely sure who Esposito would be playing in the movie, but I think he might be a villain.
He’s already proven how good he is as the villain in stuff like Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian.
