Adam Driver Star Wars Fantastic Four Marvel

Fans have been patiently awaiting any news about the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot ever since it was announced by Marvel Studios. According to Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman, Adam Driver is in final talks to star as Reed Richards in the film.

This isn’t the first time Adam Driver’s name has been attached to rumors about the Fantastic Four reboot. A number of previous rumors have claimed he was in the running for Doctor Doom in the film. However, this newest rumor from Daniel Richtman seems to affirm prior whisperings from insider Jeff Sneider, claiming that Driver would be playing the film’s hero.

Adam Driver has been divisive choice for both Doom and Reed Richards ever since the rumors hit the web. Many don’t see the Star Wars alum as the right fit for the role, while others simply see different actors as better picks for the character. Only time will tell if this rumor turns out to be true. If Driver does land the role, it likely won’t be long until news breaks in the major outlets.

The Fantastic Four reboot is expected to be a fresh take on the classic Marvel characters, with a new cast. Matt Shakman is directing the movie from a screenplay by Josh Friedman, best known for his work on Avatar: The Way of Water. It is currently scheduled to hit theaters in 2025.

John Krasinski played the Earth-838 variant of Reed Richards in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but his future as the character is currently in doubt. Krasinski’s wife Emily Blunt has said that she’s hopeful we’ll see the actor back as Richards for Fantastic Four.
