Will Adam Driver join the MCU? This is the rumor of the moment! The actor would have indeed met the leaders of Marvel for a role in The Fantastic Four.
After announcing Harrison Ford ‘s arrival in the MCU as General Thunderbolt Ross in Captain America: New World Order and Thunderbolts , journalist Jeff Sneider has just launched a new rumor.
During the Hot Mic podcast , The Ankler reporter , said he heard that Adam Driver met with Marvel execs this summer for the role of Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four movie .
He mentions that he also got wind of a rumor that the actor had auditioned for the role of the supervillain Doctor Doom, the main antagonist of Fantastic Four. But Sneider specifies on this subject that this information does not come from his usual sources and that it must therefore be taken with a grain of salt.
