At this point, it feels like every leading man working in Hollywood who’s yet to appear in the MCU has been linked to the part of Reed Richards in Marvel’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Diego Luna, Penn Badgley, even Henry Cavill… You name it, they’ve been touted as a potential contender to replace Doctor Strange 2‘s John Krasinski as Mr. Fantastic. Although the latest actor who’s going through the rumor mill might be the biggest stretch yet.
Building on a claim insider Jeff Sneider made in October, Beyond the Trailer’s Grace Randolph has argued that none other than Star Wars sequel trilogy star Adam Driver is the current “frontrunner” for the role of Reed. TheDirect.com is likewise reporting on the same thing. This could be just as much wish fulfillment as the other rumored Reeds, then, but this is coming to us from three different sources, so make of that what you will.
