Doctor Strange 2 fans debate if John Krasinski’s Mr. Fantastic will remain in MCU

The article discusses spoilers from Multiverse of Madness, be warned! With Doctor Strange 2 released, the most debated topic continues to be MCU’s multiverse variant Mr. Fantastic played by John Krasinski. Although the sequel is largely about Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange and Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda – their fight over America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) ultimately collides them with Earth-838’s Illuminati, which also comprises of Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch) Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell), Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart).

Anticipation for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was largely due to Marvel’s new hype formula in introducing unexpected cameos, as it did in Spider-Man: No Way Home. But the blockbuster sequel went a step beyond by surprisingly casting Krasinki to play Reed Richards, the actor that fans long campaigned on social media. However, the twist of events in Doctor Strange 2 has many wondering if the A Quiet Place star will also play the leader of the first Marvel family in the upcoming Fantastic Four feature.

As exciting as the multiverse cameos were, Marvel Studios left fans startled after killing off every member of the Illuminati (except Chiwetel Ejiofor‘s Mordo) within minutes of their introduction. Their deaths, including Mr. Fantastic turning into spaghetti, have Marvel aficionados wondering if the actor would play the smartest man of MCU for Earth-616, the main continuity. Readers can check out reactions below.

It should be noted that multiverse variants have the same face as the main universe although their arc is entirely different, case in point, Defender Doctor Strange. However, the Loki series begs to differ since the Trickster god had a gender-swapped variant, Sylvie and even a non-human version, Alligator Loki. Though it can be argued the differences could be due to Loki’s gender-fluid nature.

In any case, it remains to be seen if Krasinki could play Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Marvel’s first family feature. Speaking of which, the project recently lost its director with Jon Watts’ exit and Marvel is yet to bring another talent on board to helm the movie. In fact, many fans hope to see Krasinki himself direct the ensemble flick especially since he directed a critically acclaimed family-oriented horror title like A Quiet Place.
