spoilers ahead for Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness.
Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness He treated fans to a smattering of freaks of familiar faces, but it turns out the latest Marvel movie could have also appeared in a guise from 007 himself. That’s right, recently retired James Bond star Daniel Craig was at one point about to attend Dr. Gharib 2, until safety concerns are paid to this plan. And according to some sources, he almost played the role of Mr. Fantastic!
This is an interesting “what if…?” The script was revealed by Deadline’s Justin Kroll on Twitter, as well as backed by other industry insiders. According to Kroll, Craig was scheduled to travel to the film’s set to spend a day filming his cameo, but concerns about increased COVID cases at the time led him to back off. With Craig out the window, John Krasinski is assigned Creed instead.
While Krasinski’s cameos as Mr. Fantastic left fans awake as is, now that we know Craig has almost made his appearance, people are desperate to know what he could have been in the role.
Let’s hope Craig and director Sam Raimi can work together on another project.
Hey, maybe Craig could play the thing in the future The Fantastic Four Reboot?
On the other hand, it is important to stress that the alternative information indicates that Craig has indeed been set to play Balder the Brave, an Asgardian deity and brother of Thor. Mr. Fantastic is then allegedly replaced by Balder after Craig withdrew.
Perhaps this idea makes more sense and has intrigued fans just as much.
Yes, we can kinda see it.
But maybe things will go well and there is another character available to him.
If Craig was almost casting in Dr. Gharib 2 Seems random, remember he’s married to Rachel Weisz, who just joined the MCU itself Black Widow. Likewise, he was offered the role of Thor before Chris Hemsworth cast the role, adding further credence to the Balder rumor. Although if Marvel wanted to cast it as one of the Fantastic Four, it looks like people would be willing to.
