It’s been years since fans of Marvel campaigns to bring John Krasinski (‘A Quiet Place’) as Mr. Fantastic in an adaptation of ‘Fantastic Four’ in the MCU.
And the request was granted in part, as the star brought the hero to life in a brief cameo in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘.
However, he was not the studio’s first choice.
Through Twitter, the journalist Justin Kroll, of deadlinerevealed that Daniel Craig was the favorite for the role, but ended up giving up the opportunity due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the US.
Curiosity was revealed when kroll commented on an article in which Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda) reveals that she did not get to act with Krasinski.
“Curiosity, Krasinski was not the first choice for the role, the actor originally set to play Mr. Fantastic was ready to film, but when there was a spike in COVID cases, he dropped out because he lived in London and felt traveling to shoot a quick scene wasn’t worth the risk of being infected and passing COVID on to his family.”
Fun fact, Krasinski wasn’t the first choice, the actor originally set to play the role was all set to shoot but when there was an uptick in COVID cases, he backed out as he was living in London and didn’t think the quick shoot wasn’t worth risk of bringing back COVID to the fam pic.twitter.com/sD9nT0omki
