John Krasinski Rumored to be “In Talks” With Marvel Studios. Marvel fans may be in for a treat! According to Geeks Worldwide, Marvel Studios has been hosting virtual meetings with actors, writers, and directors for upcoming projects over the last few weeks and one name from the list seems to pop off the list: John Krasinski.
One of the leading projects rumored to be on the rise at Marvel Studios is either a film or series about the “Young Avengers”. It is unknown if Krasinski was a part of that conversation or if the Studios has formally reached out to A Quiet Place and The Office actor and director in regards to the rumored Fantastic Four remake.
As of late, Krasinski has become the fan choice to take on the role of Reed Richards in the rumored remake. Fans are not the only ones behind the idea. John Krasinski himself has expressed interest in the role, telling ComicBook, “I would love to do it. I think to be a part of the Marvel world would be amazing anyway, and the fact that people would even consider me for that level of a part would be amazing. I genuinely have had no conversations or don’t know anything that’s happening with that. I’m awaiting Kevin’s announcements of what the hell’s happening with that as much as you are.”
Rumors of his potential casting spread like wildfire after it was revealed Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt, was approached by representatives from Marvel Studios while on set for Disney’s The Jungle Cruise, with news spreading that Emily and John were offered the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm for the remake of Fantastic Four that would be the first F4 movie tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Neither Disney nor Marvel have yet to confirm any of these rumors, but it seems that Krasinski and Blunt seem rather rehearsed in their responses to questions about the potential casting, and have refrained from answering Yes or No so far… Both actors seem eager to work with Marvel Studios, especially after Krasinski came VERY close to playing Captain America in the MCU previously, and Blunt having an active working relationship with Walt Disney Studios with Mary Poppins Returns and The Jungle Cruise.
Do you think Krasinski and Blunt will be joining the MCU? What roles do you want to see them in for the Studio? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel.
