Actor John Krasinski could be set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) if reported talks with boss Kevin Feige go according to plan.
Website Geeks WorldWide reported the 40-year-old The Office star has allegedly taken a virtual meeting with Feige, and the pair are keen to work with one another in the future.
“The studio has been taking virtual meetings with various actors, writers, and directors over the past weeks, and one of those people is none other than John Krasinski,” a source said. “Krasinski and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige have both said they’d love to work together, and it seems that’s now closer to happening than ever before.”
They added: “While I’m not sure of the role he’d take in the MCU, whether it be that of a director, writer, or actor, I do know they discussed a multitude of projects during their meeting.”
Although the insider claimed there’s no offer for a particular role on the table as yet, Krasinski previously told Esquire magazine he’d love to take on the role of Mister Fantastic, also known as Richard Reed, in the Fantastic Four franchise, previously played by Ioan Gruffudd and Miles Teller.
The star previously lost the role of Captain America to Chris Evans.
Meanwhile, the A Quiet Place writer/director is spending the coronavirus lockdown hosting his new web series Some Good News, which is available to view on his YouTube channel.
