After the recent news that Adam Driver may have signed on to play Mr. Fantastic in Fantastic Four, we here at GIANT FREAKIN ROBOT decided to throw together an image of what that might look like. In short, it turns out Driver fits perfectly as one of the most intelligent heroes in the MCU roster. Check out the image of Driver all suited up below:

Adam Driver has been rumored to play Reed Richards in Fantastic Four for a while now, and insider reports seem to be indicating that this rumor is going to come true. Although there has been nothing official yet, Driver does have the acting chops and the intensity to play such an intelligent character that will likely be a massive part of the MCU going forward. It seems like it’s just a matter of time that the cast for the film becomes official.

These Adam Driver ‘insider reports’ come right on the heels of reports that Margot Robbie was offered the role of Sue Storm/Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four. If these reports are true and Robbie takes the role, it definitely seems like Marvel is making a concerted effort to cast Marvel’s first family with prestige actors. This would be especially true if the rumors of Paul Mescal being the top choice for Johnny Storm/Human Torch have merit.

Announcing Adam Driver and the rest of the cast of Fantastic Four soon would be a good move for Marvel, as the comic-book company is hot off the opening weekend success of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Announcing a stacked cast for a highly-anticipated movie would be a great way to keep the hype train rolling, especially after the MCU has been facing dangers of comic-book fatigue and other external issues. The negative reception of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the as-of-yet unresolved legal issues of star Jonathan Majors mean that the future of the MCU is a bit of a question mark right now.

If Adam Driver and Margot Robbie are cast in Fantastic Four, they would likely be signing on for a big commitment with a multi-movie contract. It’s possible that even if these two were offered the role, they could turn it down rather than get roped into another franchise. Both actors have had a taste of the franchise model, and the results of that might have left a bad taste in their mouths.

While Adam Driver and Margot Robbie both brought great energy and performances to Star Wars and the DCU, respectively, the films they were in weren’t particularly well received. While it’s possible that the MCU version of Fantastic Four will be incredible, the Fantastic Four franchise, in general, hasn’t had great film adaptations. It would certainly be understandable if both actors wanted to avoid the MCU for now.

For now, we’ll just have to wait until Disney and Marvel officially announce if Adam Driver and Margot Robbie will be in Fantastic Four. In the meantime, you can check out Driver in his recent movie 65. Robbie can be seen next in the Wes Anderson film Asteroid City on June 23.
