John Krasinski is a busy man, and his busy schedule could be the reason why he is ending his run in arguably one of his best roles. It is being rumored that Krasinki is going to end his run as Jack Ryan at the end of Jack Ryan Season 4, for which he is an executive producer. The Amazon Prime series has been well-received and could be a huge reason why the man is now getting even more directing opportunities. He has helmed both A Quiet Place films and is set to direct the third installment as well. Though Krasinski is stepping down as Jack Ryan, there are rumors that a spinoff series is in the works.

Not all news is bad news though. Jack Ryan might be coming to an end with John Krasinski as the lead, but a new spinoff starring Michael Pena is currently in the works. He is set to portray Domingo “Ding” Chavez, another character that exists in the written universe of Jack Ryan continuity from Tom Clancy. Pena is certainly a fan-favorite actor, especially after his time in the MCU. Ding Chavez has been rumored to appear at the end of Jack Ryan Season 3, and he will be a more integral part of the fourth season. Pena had been cast in the show back in October, and though his role had not yet been revealed, now internet sleuths seemed to have figured out who he is portraying.

Jack Ryan was also being worked on by John Krasinski, as he was in an unofficial showrunner role for the latter half of the show’s run, however, he had only signed up for four seasons of the show. Apparently, he is going to end his run at the point at which he first negotiated being placed in the role. Again, this could make sense considering how busy the man is. Without spoiling too much, he had also had a massive Marvel role that might take up a bit more of his time now, so it could just be time for him to move on from the Amazon series.

John Krasinski is set to appear as Superman in the DC League of Super-Pets film, which is set to debut on July 29th. He then follows that up with a film called Imaginary Friends, which he is directing. The plot of the film is currently a secret, but he is set to star in the film alongside Steve Carrell and Ryan Reynolds. That film has a November 2023 release date schedule. His next is the secret Marvel role that we will not divulge here, but one might find it with a simple google search.

It is sad to see John Krasinski leaving one of his best roles and one that is completely different than what he has done previously. Well, apart from being the stalwart father in A Quiet Place. However, it sounds like the Jack Ryan universe will be placed in good hands with Michael Pena taking the reins on his own spinoff series. He was fantastic in End of Watch, so that film could have prepared him for this type of role.
