Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness made John Krasinski’s Reed Richards the first Fantastic Four character to enter the MCU, but the logo on his costume has been seen before.
Marvel Studios’ Fantastic four, previously owned by Fox until Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, was announced during the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. In 2010, the project’s logo was revealed. So far, this has been the only glimpse fans have gotten of the upcoming MCU movie. Nevertheless, Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness saw John Krasinski enter the MCU as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic from Earth-838.
While it’s not yet clear if Krasinski will also play the MCU’s main Reed Richards, his costume may have hinted at a close connection to the MCU’s Earth-616 Fantastic Four.
John Krasinski’s appearance in Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness it was a shock to the fans. The actor has long been a fan favorite choice for the role of Reed Richards. While he may or may not reprise the role at Marvel Studios’ Fantastic fourit looks like his costume was designed with that movie in mind.
The previously revealed logo for Marvel Studios Fantastic four is identical to the one used by John Krasinski in Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness, suggesting that this version of Mr. Fantastic is not too far removed from Reed Richards of Earth-616. Take a look at the comparison below and notice how all four share the same pointed design, the same slight slant, and in both cases the top and left of the number protrude through the circle outline of the logo:
Who plays Reed Richards in Fantastic four probably won’t wear the same costume that was seen in Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness – Not only are the costumes of the Marvel characters updated regularly, but all of the Earth-838 costumes were in some way different from their Earth-616 counterparts. Mr. Fantastic is unlikely to be the exception to this rule. However, it seems likely that the character will sport the same emblem seen in the doctor strange continuation.
