New artwork imagines John Krasinski as the next Reed Richards for the Jon Watts-directed Fantastic Four reboot.
Ever since Disney acquired the Fox rights and brought Marvel’s First Family home where they belong, fans have constantly debated as to who would make the perfect stars to play the likes of Reed Richards and Sue Storm in the inevitable Fantastic Four reboot. And now that we know Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts will bring the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fan-casts have started once again.
And of course, there’s only one actor that has consistently been thrown out into the cosmos for Reed Richards and that’s John Krasinski. The star of Amazon’s Jack Ryan and The Office definitely looks like he’d fit right in with the rest of the MCU for the Jon Watts film. He’s even commented on the possibility of playing Reed Richards in live-action before. This design from Instagram user ‘saarukan.psd’ sees John Krasinski wearing the classic blue and black Fantastic Four costume in a laboratory, and its easy to picture him swapping scientific theories with other heroes like Shuri and Bruce Banner. Take a look below.
