FANTASTIC FOUR Alum Ioan Gruffudd Wants To Join The Marvel Cinematic Universe As A Villain

Ioan Gruffudd played Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four movies but the actor has taken on a lot of different roles since then and is now hoping he can become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer were both pretty terrible but the cast (mostly) managed to survive the movies, with Chris Evans arguably best off after making the leap to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain America. Now, Ioan Gruffudd - who played Mr. Fantastic - has revealed that he would also like to join the MCU, hopefully starring as a villain rather than a hero. 

"I would love that... I just don't know, in that universe, the Marvel world, would they let me play something else?... I'm sure for Marvel it was a tough decision to pick Chris to play that part [Captain America] because he'd already played one superhero, but what a brilliant decision it was, because he's wonderful. And Michael B Jordan has played Johnny Storm and he's amazing in Black Panther as well, so there are precedents set. So we'll see. Maybe [I could play] a baddie, this time? Now that I've established myself as somebody who can do that, that would be great."

If you only know the Welsh actor from the Fantastic Four movies, chances are this won't excite you that much but he's starred in a lot of very different projects since then, including ITV's Liar, a series where he was actually pretty terrifying as a serial rapist (so, quite a departure from the leader of the superhero team he played in the mid-2000s). Perhaps he could be the MCU's version of Doctor Doom?

We'll have to wait and see. For now, let us know your thoughts on these remarks in the usual place.
