FANTASTIC FOUR: "Reed Richards" Trends After Rumor About John Krasinski Meeting With Marvel Studios

FANTASTIC FOUR: "Reed Richards" Trends After Rumor About John Krasinski Meeting With Marvel Studios

After the news broke that hunky Jack Ryan star John Krasinski has had a virtual meeting with Marvel Studios, fans on social media made it known to Marvel Studios who they want the actor/filmmaker to play!

Rumours started swirling yesterday evening that John Krasinski has had a virtual meeting with Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige...probably via Zoom given what's happening in the world! 

Given that he's a firm fan favorite to take on the role of Mister Fantastic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's reboot of the Fantastic Four series of films, it took no time at all for "Reed Richards" to start trending on Twitter as fans made it known to Marvel Studios who they want the actor and filmmaker to play in the ever expanded shared universe. 

Why is this a big deal? 

It takes a lot for anything to trend online - particularly with a global pandemic dominating headlines across the planet - so the simple mention of Krasinki's name in the same sentence as the MCU generating this sort of response is not something Marvel Studios is going to be able to overlook. 

The Office alum and current Jack Ryan star (not to mention A Quiet Place director) has made his interest in Fantastic Four known countless times in recent months. With this supposed meeting between him and Feige generating a response like this, there's a hope we could be that little bit closer to seeing Krasinski play the smartest superhero in the entire MCU.
