While the legalities are still being figured out, it’s expected that Disney will own intellectual movie rights to 20th Century Fox’s big screen characters. This means Marvel Studios may once again have the rights to their own Fantastic Four.. who just can’t seem to find a good cinematic story. One actor that fans have been begging to play Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards), John Krasinski, was asked about playing the stretchy superhero. Here’s what he had to say:
“Oh yeah, the Fantastic Four. I would love that! I mean listen, I’m still getting into the whole superhero thing. I didn’t read comics as a kid, not as many, I read some but not as much, but I’m a huge superhero fan so yeah, I’d love to do something like that. If there are any left, a lot of these have been taken but the ones that are left, yeah, I would love to do something like that. And listen, I’d love to work with her again so any chance I got would be great.”
