Adam Driver Rumored to play Reed Richards in Fantastic Four Reboot

There is a rumor generating traction that Adam Driver has become the front-runner for the role of Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four MCU reboot. Marvel currently has the film scheduled for 2024, but many of the details surrounding the forthcoming film are still shrouded in mystery.

Since the project was announced, we have seen many names suggested for the role, and fans were given the dream casting so many suggested when John Krasinski played a variant of Reed in the film ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’

Rumors surrounding Driver as Mr. Fantastic heated up during the fall, and now Movieweb is even suggesting that Driver is the frontrunner for the part. Movieweb cited The Direct in speculating that Driver was Marvel’s Top Casting choice for the role.

We should stress that these are only rumors, and multiple names have been linked with the role over the last year. Stars like Diego Luna (The Last of Us) and Elvis’ Austin Butler have also surfaced online in recent months. They have yet to be confirmed. Krasinski told The Wrap last month that “There aren’t any discussions at all” at him returning to the role.
