We did see a version of Reed Richards in the latest Doctor Strange film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Played by none other than the charismatic John Krasinski, it was all out the window a couple of minutes later. Marvel president Kevin Fiege later reported that John Krasinki was cast purely on the basis of “fan service” and he had no further plan for the Office actor to continue playing the stretchy team leader of Fantastic Four, Reed Richards.
