    As reported by BroBible, the report originated from The Hot Mic podcast, sending fans into a tizzy. The idea of Driver potentially donning the cloak of Doctor Doom, one of Marvel’s most formidable villains, caused quite the stir.

    While the Fantastic Four casting rumors had been swirling for some time, with fans hoping to see John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as Reed Richards and Sue Storm respectively, this report introduced a new exciting angle. Krasinski did take a brief turn as Mr. Fantastic in a Doctor Strange film, but the core Fantastic Four casting was still largely unconfirmed.

    Ultimately, these rumors were just that: rumors. Still, they reflect an exciting time in the MCU when speculation was rife, and anything seemed possible. Even now, the prospect of Adam Driver joining the ranks of Marvel’s characters adds an enticing twist to the Fantastic Four story.
