John Krasinski Teases Returning as Reed Richards For Fantastic Four After Ryan Reynolds Confirms Hugh Jackman Returning as Wolverine in Deadpool 3

John Krasinski as Reed Richards

John Krasinski has the nametag Jim Halpert stuck to his name ever since his The Office ended in 2013 after a nine-season run. Things have looked better for him after that TV show, with him being cast in numerous movies, the biggest of them all being his debut in the MCU as Reed Richards.

Krasinski has proven himself to be an actor of the highest caliber too, with his nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for Jack Ryan doing the speaking for him. However, it’s his Reed Richards portrayal MCU fans have been loving him for, which he isn’t guaranteed to be playing again. But Krasinski teases us with a possible return as Mr. Fantastic.

Jackman had supposedly signed off from portraying James Howlett, a character he’s played for more than a decade, after the ending of Logan in 2017. But a recent Twitter video from Ryan Reynolds, which was quite hilarious, officially confirms the return of the 53-year-old actor as Wolverine.

One interesting aspect of the Twitter video announcing the return of Jackman as Wolverine is a retweet from John Krasinski that’s keeping us on our toes

This is quite the tease honestly. Fans adored John Krasinski in the role of Reed Richards as a member of the Illuminati and would kill to have him back.

But let’s not jump to conclusions here, the tweet is most probably a dig at a recent collaborative project between Krasinski and Reynolds for an upcoming fantasy comedy movie called IF.

Imaginary Friends or IF is an upcoming movie that will feature Krasinski star in the movie alongside his friend Reynolds. Reynolds is set to produce the movie, and Krasinski will be writing, directing, and also producing the project as well.

So keep your hopes to dim Marvel fans, it’s just not what you think it is, or is it?

But it’s most probably a hint towards the upcoming fantasy comedy IF in which Ryan Reynolds and Krasinski will be producers as well co-actors. The tweet has also sent Marvel fans into a bit of a frenzy, and that’s only fair. Here are some of the best reactions to Krasinski’s enticing tweet-

Marvel fanatic Matt Ramos, who runs the YT channel SUPES, was equally shocked-

We need answers JOHN!-

Hold on to that speculation-

That’s truly a bummer, but what if it isn’t about IF?

We can’t pinpoint what Krasinski tries to say here- is it a joke? Is it some advanced form of promotion for IF? Is this the earliest tease for Krasinski’s return as Reed Richards? You could have a lot of answers to this, but it’s best we wait for an official confirmation in the future.
