Despite the uncertainty of the future of the MCU and the halt in a number of Marvel projects in response to CO-VID 19, it looks like the film juggernaut has not yet stopped developing its future film slates. As first reported by Geeks WorldWide, A Quiet Place director and star John Krasinski recently attended a virtual meeting with Marvel Studios about a potential collaboration.
Per the initial report, Krasinksi is one of may filmmakers Marvel is speaking with. However, this particular meeting is notable due to the swell of support Krasinksi and his wife, Mary Poppins Returns star Emily Blunt, has on the internet about joining the MCU. Many fan’s fantasy casting has the acting powerhouse couple in the roles of Mr. Fantastic and The Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four.
In a bevy of interviews of the last few years, Krasinski has been open to the idea of working with MArvel. Additionally, Marvel CCO Kevin Feige is willing to collaborate with The Office star as well. However, while the meeting did, in fact, take place recently Krasinski is reportedly yet to enter any official talks with Marvel Studios.
Krasinski is recently becoming more and more popular online. His social media accounts have published several episodes of a new web series titled Some Good News. The actor attempts to shine a light on the world during this stressful time with humor and good deeds, along with special celebrity guests like Steve Carell and Lin Manuel Miranda. On a recent episode of the series, the actor even teased playing a superhero. Moreover, the star currently stars on Amazon’s Jack Ryan. His next film, A Quiet Place II, currently sits without a release date.
Take this report with a grain of salt. As is always the case with Marvel, nothing is confirmed until it is. However, given the success of Krasinki and Blunt, the notion of them joining the MCU is certainly exciting.
