Henry Cavill carving his way into the Mr. Fantastic role for MCU fan art

A new piece of MCU fan art casts Henry Cavill as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic on Earth-616, replacing John Krasinski’s Doctor Strange 2 version.

A new piece Fantastic Four Fan art imagines Henry Cavill as Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic Marvel Cinematic Universe. In 2005, Ioan Gruffudd made his debut in Fox’s first attempt at bringing Marvel’s First Family to the big screen. While Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surferand 2015 Fantastic Four (which Miles Teller starred in) weren’t exactly well received, they helped pave the way for better things.

When Disney acquired Fox in 2019, Deadpool, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four were brought under Marvel Studios control. After Kevin Feige and co. announced these characters would be implemented in the MCU, popular fan cast John Krasinski played Mr. Fantastic Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In the film, Stephen Strange lands in an alternate reality, Earth-838, and is arrested by the Illuminati, a secret society of superheroes consisting of Karl Mordo, Captain Carter, Maria Rambeau/Captain Marvel, Black Bolt, Professor Charles Xavier, and the smartest man in the world, Reed Richards. Given that Krasinski’s cameo took place in a different universe, Earth-616’s Mr. Fantastic could still be played by a different actor.
