Unfortunately, Kevin Feige and company have their hands full with sequels, new productions and series, which must tie in with the line they follow for their saga.
A movie has been confirmed for a long time fantastic four, but there is no release date or possible start of production. The only thing that was counted on was Jon Watts as director, who already did a great job with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy. With this first advance, the followers began to throw names to find the protagonists and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt were always favorites to play Reed Richards and Sue Storm. The problem is that it was recently revealed that Watts asked for a break and withdrew from the project, leaving things without much direction, but everything picked up steam again after Krasinski’s cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

In interview with VarietyMichael Waldron, screenwriter of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Loki- 96%, was questioned about the arrival of John Krasinski:
I’m not involved in the casting, but as with all these actors, I worked very closely with him to bring the character to life with him and Sam. And especially with him, because he was the only character without a real precedent in the MCU, not one. Figuring out how we wanted him to be this guy was a lot of fun. That particular character is definitely one of my favorite comic book characters.
Similarly, the writer was asked if he had information about the future of the actor within the UCM, to which he simply replied:
It’s a question for someone else.
This last comment is not unusual if we consider that Marvel asks its creators for absolute discretion, but also keeps them out of other productions to avoid leaks.
At this point no one doubts that John Krasinski will return as Reed Richards for the movie fantastic four. The actor has been saying for years that he would love to please the fans and it would be an absurd risk to put another actor when the viewers were already able to enjoy his presence in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
