The internet really, really, really wants John Krasinski to play Reed Richards. Before long, Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four will begin principal photography before too long at all, and a new internet rumor suggests Krasinski could be appearing as the patriarch of Marvel’s First Family as soon as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While the rumor itself has no factual basis behind it, the internet can’t help but rally around the fan-casting once again. After all, The Office alumnus has been one of the most popular choices to play the character.
At one point, Krasinski even told ComicBook.com’s Chris Killian that he’d love to play Mr. Fantastic should the opportunity ever arise.
“I would love to do it. I think to be a part of the Marvel world would be amazing anyway, and the fact that people would even consider me for that level of a part would be amazing,” the actor said at the time. “I genuinely have had no conversations or don’t know anything that’s happening with that. I’m awaiting Kevin’s announcements of what the hell’s happening with that as much as you are.”

If marvel has cast John Krasinski as Reed Richards it hasn’t been unprecedented for them to cast the person that has been the most popular fancast. Hailee and Benedict were the most popular fan cast for Doctor Strange and Kate Bishop before they were cast. pic.twitter.com/Co05p86Q8K
