When the world saw John Krasinski on the big screen as Mr. Fantastic in doctor strange in the multiverse of madness, it felt like something had been done right. For years, Marvel fans have clamored to have the actor play the boss of The Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And although his wish was fulfilled for a brief moment with a very exciting cameo, it seems that this feeling will not return.
While promoting the third season of jack ryan, John Krasinski was questioned about his future as Mr. Fantastic. Far from wanting to evade the issue or give an answer to the air, the director was also very definitive and sincere about it. He hinted (via) that his participation in the MCU was nothing more than a cameo and an experience that will not be repeated.
“There is no conversation about it,” he said. “The only conversation I had was actually during the penultimate week of Jack Ryan taping.”
Krasinski recounted how he got involved in the Sorcerer Supreme sequel. A call from Kevin Feige was enough to convince him to cross the globe in a plane to lend himself to a special filming that took place during a single day.
“Kevin Feige called me and said if I could fly to Los Angeles and shoot some sequences for a day,” he said. “It was an honor to do it. I flew directly from Budapest when we finished and went directly to the set of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I’m a huge fan of all those characters and that world, so being able to collaborate with them for a day was really exciting.”
In said sequel Krasinski played Reed Richards from another universe. There, along with other powerful superheroes, the man with the ability to stretch belonged to the Illuminati group. A kind of protectors whose mission is to prevent some Doctor Strange from another universe from causing multiversal chaos.
Unfortunately the character is terminated immediately and cruelly. An unstoppable Wanda Maximoff visits said universe to catch the person who can open the doors to the world where her children are. Mr. Fantastic ends up on the ground turned into confetti. Krasinski also spoke about the tragic end of the character.
“It’s total madness. To be in a room with all those people and to be part of that narrative again is crazy,” she added. “But yeah, becoming spaghetti wasn’t my ultimate goal in life as far as how it works in the Marvel universe, but you don’t know how much fun that was.”
meanwhile a movie the fantastic four is in development under the leadership of Matt Shakman. The man to whom we owe the series WandaVision. It seems that Kevin Feige plans to introduce the characters from scratch with other faces and without the company of John Krasinski.
That long-awaited film is scheduled to hit theaters in November 2024.
