Mister Fantastic’s Gruesome Doctor Strange 2 Death Was Kevin Feige’s suggestion
Medical professional Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ VFX manager clarifies just how Marvel’s Kevin Feige conceived Mister Fantastic’s fatality scene.
The stunning and also terrible death of Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic (John Krasinski) in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was not conceived by supervisor Sam Raimi or film writer Michael Waldron– yet rather originated from the creative imagination of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige himself.
The stretching and spaghetti-like dismemberment of the Fantastic Four’s genius leader was a concept that Feige relayed to the movie’s VFX supervisor, Julian Foddy. In a meeting with before & afters, Foddy clarified just how Play-doh served as the inspiration for the troubling fatality scene. “The starting factor there was some referral that was passed to us by Janek Sirrs straight from Kevin Feige,” he said.
While the Doctor Strange sequel’s VFX group wanted to capture a practical appearance for Reed Richards’ fatality, they were very careful to not step beyond the specifications of the film’s PG-13 ranking. Of program, this is a Marvel film and we do not want to be too gruesome.”
Will John Krasinski’s Reed Richards Return?
Multiverse of Madness noted the character of Reed Richards’ first appearance in a Marvel Studios job. Raimi just recently confirmed that Marvel Cinematic Universe fan casting persuaded Feige to cast The Office’s Krasinski as Mister Fantastic. “It’s so funny that Kevin cast John due to the fact that the fans had a dream of that the ideal Reed Richards would certainly be,” claimed Raimi. “And because this is an alternate universe, I assume Kevin said, ‘Let’s make that dream happened.’ I’ve constantly actually appreciated all of his performances.'”.
Wonder is currently creating a Fantastic Four reboot embeded in the MCU. While Krasinski’s Earth-838’s Reed Richards satisfied a gruesome end in the Doctor Strange follow up, Marvel Studios has not confirmed if the star will be back to play his prime MCU equivalent. Raimi’s remarks regarding Krasinski being cast since it was “an alternate world” have actually relatively called the star’s MCU future into question.
Physician Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently streaming on Disney+. Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four does not have a release date.
