John Krasinski is uncertain about his future in the MCU, confirming that he hasn’t had any conversations with Marvel since his fleeting cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The Office actor appeared in a multiverse version of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, and during an interview with TheWrap, confirmed he hadn’t had “any discussions at all, the only discussion I had was actually in the second-to-last week of Jack Ryan.”
Krasinski received a call from Marvel president Kevin Feige about flying out to Los Angeles and joining them for a small stint in the sequel. In response, Krasinski said he was “honoured to do it. I flew right from Budapest when we wrapped and went right to the Doctor Strange set. I’m a big fan of all those characters and that world, so to get to play in that sandbox for one day was a real thrill.”
Reed Richard’s death in the film is far from a pretty or a dignified one. However, Krasinski was happy with his part in the film. He described the overall experience as “totally insane. To be in a room with all those people, and again to be a part of that narrative is crazy,” he said. “But yeah, being turned into spaghetti wasn’t my end goal in life as far as how it goes in the Marvel universe, but you know what it was fun nonetheless.”
As we know, a Fantastic Four reboot will be coming in 2025 as part of Marvel’s Phase 6, and there’s every chance Krasinski could reprise the role of Reed Richards in the film. If all goes to plan, Fantastic Four is due to debut in cinemas on November 8, 2024.
Krasinski is back as Jack Ryan for a third season on Prime Video, expected on December 21, 2022.
