John Krasinski’s Doctor Strange 2 Hero Looks Fantastic in HD Photos
Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness gave fans a taste of what existed in other universes outside of Earth-616 (or Earth-19999 for those on Iman Vellani’s side). This included Marvel Studios’ first version of Illuminati, which even featured one of the first big old Fox Studios characters in John Krasinski’s Reed Richards.
Krasinski has had conversations with fans regarding his potential chances of playing Mr. Fantastic in the MCU for the better part of the past two years, particularly after Disney acquired the rights to the Fantastic Four. That chatter only increased when news broke that Krasinski had secretly met with Marvel Studios, though no details of that reunion were made public, with fans excited to see this fan-casting come to life.
Even among a star-studded cast of Illuminati members like Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Krasinski made some serious waves in his first run as leader of the Fantastic Four.
Now that the Multiversal sequel has been in theaters for a few weeks, fans have their best look at the MCU’s first take on the stretchy hero.

Thanks to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ on Disney+, while the film is available to buy digitally, new HD photos now offer the best look at John Krasinski’s Reed Richards.
Krasinski brought his first version of Mr. Fantastic to the MCU, sitting on the dais with the rest of the Illuminati as they judged history’s first Doctor Strange.
When the Earth-838 version of Wanda Maximoff broke into Illuminati headquarters, Reed Richards sprang into action alongside Black Bolt, Captain Marvel, and Captain Carter to stop the Scarlet Witch.
Unfortunately, Krasinski’s hero was the second to fall to Wanda’s power after Black Bolt, with Wanda literally tearing Reed’s body to pieces as he stretched in an attempt to contain her.

Now, these high-definition photos give viewers a glimpse of his flawless design, with John Krasinski wearing a classic version of Reed Richards’ costume as he appeared in his first Marvel Studios production.
Of all the characters who were said to appear in Doctor Strange 2, Krasinski’s take on Reed Richards has largely slipped under the radar, especially after promotional material showed Captain Carter and Professor X in trailers. Regardless of the journey, however, the MCU’s first use of the Fantastic Four became a resounding success, as Krasinski finally took on the role he’d wanted to play for so long.
Now the wait begins for more Marvel Studios full news The Fantastic Four film, which is in the early stages of pre-production ahead of its undisclosed release schedule. While the rest of the cast won’t be cast for the foreseeable future, fans are sure to be hoping that Krasinski can also incorporate his expertise as Reed Richards into the upcoming solo film.
