Doctor Strange 2 was full of big surprises, but none more impactful than Reed Richards’ MCU debut. Mister Fantastic (John Krasinski) emerged from Earth-838 as a member of the Illuminati Multiverse of Madness. Scarlet Witch quickly wiped him out, but it was enough to get fans excited about the future of the Fantastic Four in the MCU. But as shocking as the scene was, it wasn’t the creative team’s original plan for Richards.

In the latest edition of Empire Magazine, Doctor Strange 2 Author Michael Waldron revealed that he always wanted to include Mister Fantastic in the film somewhere:

I always wanted Reed Richards in this. In my very first draft, just for fun, I wrote a tag that the events of the film were being recorded and reviewed by someone in the Baxter Building, and a stretchy hand got into the frame to rewind it. Reed is probably my favorite Marvel comics character, so I’ve always wanted to get him in somewhere.

This obviously didn’t happen, but Waldron was able to include his favorite superhero.

Of course, we now know why Marvel didn’t let Waldron use the “real” Mister Fantastic in Doctor Strange 2. Last month, Marvel Studios disclosed the future of the MCU until 2025 at San Diego Comic-Con. We’ve learned that Phase 6 will begin with a Fantastic Four movie. This will be the first Fantastic Four film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

rumors about Fantastic Four plentiful, from casting calls to potential directors, but Marvel hasn’t made anything official yet. We should find out more at D23 Expo next month, and we might even get a glimpse of the real Reed Richards.
