John Krasinski’s portrayal as Mister Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness took fans by surprise when they first saw him. He had been on top of the fans’ fan-cast for the superhero and did not expect the Marvel Cinematic Universe to actually go through with it. His cameo had been kept secret for a long time up until the movie was actually released.
Krasinski’s character being part of the Illuminati had been a rumor flying around much before the movie came out, however, when the actor showed up in the blue suit, cheers escalated throughout theatres for him. Even though he was blown into ribbons by the Scarlet Witch, fans were more than eager to know if he’ll be returning as the character or not.
