Disney+ User Poll Features John Krasinski and Emily Blunt for Fantastic Four Promo Image

If there are two things that Marvel fans want, it's for the Fantastic Four to join the MCU and for Reed Richards and Sue Storm to be played by real-life husband and wife John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Fans got a partial taste of things when Krasinski appeared as the Earth-838 Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but now a Disney+ poll is oddly taking the fan casting to an interesting new level. A survey sent out to certain Disney+ customers about upcoming MCU projects apparently is using a fan made Fantastic Four poster featuring Krasinski and Blunt.

John Krasinski Sums Up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in One Word

John Krasinski summed up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with just one word today. A lot of people were waiting for The Office star to weigh in on the MCU's latest adventure for obvious reasons. When asking what to go see this weekend, a fan suggested Doctor Strange 2. All Krasinski could say was, "Fantastic." Fans, of course, ate this small nod up. Marvel Studios has created a grey area where some elements of the movie are being discussed openly on social media feeds. But, there's still a lingering feeling of trying to keep the surprises for other fans on social media. Multiverse of Madness is celebrating its second straight week of being #1 at the box office. So, next week will definitely bring full spoilers onto the timeline. (This crop of funny memes and posts will instantly land better than the leaked images that surfaced before the movie released in a lot of territories.) Check out Krasinski's tweet for yourself down below.
