Did Marvel just accidentally reveal the MCU’s Mister Fantastic?

Marvel recently delayed the MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot. The film is now set to premiere on February 14th, 2025 instead of the original November 8th, 2024 date

At the time, we speculated that the lack of a cast for the highly anticipated movie might be one of the reasons Marvel was postponing the release. 

After all, Marvel has yet to reveal who will play the MCU’s primary Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, The Thing, and Human Torch.

We already saw plenty of exciting rumors for Reed Richards and Sue Storm, but we still need to find out who will play them. However, something else just happened.

We learned that an actor will join a particular Marvel movie in a very secret role. Did we just get the MCU’s Mister Fantastic reveal and missed it?

John Krasinski, Henry Cavill, Penn Badgley, and Adam Driver are some of the actors we saw in reports detailing MCU’s Mister Fantastic choices. Of those, Krasinski has already played the character in the MCU.

Krasinski is a fan-favorite for the Reed Richards role, and Marvel accommodated that wish in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

However, that was not the MCU’s primary Mister Fantastic. It was a variant from a different reality, one who Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) brutally murdered.
