    ‘Fantastic Four’ To Recast John Krasinski’s Character Richard Reed: All You Need To Know

    Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ revived the character of Reed Richards played by John Krasinski though it seems like he might be in danger. A new leak reveals another actor is in the running to play the ‘Fantastic Four‘ role.

    The Illuminati was introduced to the MCU with Krasinski playing the “smartest man alive.” After the film was released, fans were sure that they have found it Mister Fantastic, though things may change now.

    Marvel fans assumed that John Krasinski would be playing Reed Richards in the upcoming ‘Fantastic Four‘ film. But since that version of Richards came from another universe, the MCU has a chance to recast Mister Fantastic. A recent leak from 4chan reveals that ‘The Office‘ alum is not coming back. However, we should take this with a grain of salt.

    According to the leak, the actor playing Reed Richards was just a one-time cameo (for now, at least). It seems like Marvel is still looking for the perfect actor to play this iconic role in the MCU. The top choice to play Mister Fantastic seems to be the actor Penn Badgley.

    Beyond Reed Richards’ casting, there are also potential actors to form the rest of the cast of the ‘Fantastic Four‘. Out of a list of the alleged potential names, it seems like ‘Percy Jackson‘ star Logan Lerman could get the role of Human Torch. ‘Supergirl‘ star Melissa Benoist and ‘Stranger Things‘ star Natalia Dyer are both in the running for Sue Storm. ‘Moonlight‘ star Jharrel Jerome is also listed in the potential cast.

    For now, there’s still no official announcement on who will play who in the ‘Fantastic Four’ film. We’re still in the fan-casting territory at this point. But with Disney’s D23 and San Diego Comic-Con coming soon, Marvel has an opportunity to announce some big reveals.
