John David Washington, Tenet star, has shown his interest in playing the role of Reed Richards in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Fantastic Four movie, and in the opinion of the fans, Marvel Studios should give him a call. He wants to play the leader Reed Richards in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios is in the early stages of planning how to reboot the Marvel’s First Family in the MCU following Disney’s acquisition of Fox. It was mentioned previously by Kevin Feige that the series was on the way in the year 2019, but Marvel has yet to announce when the series is going to be released.
While the fans of the series wait for the series, they have been left to speculate when and how the team could be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, there has not been any shortage of fan casts for the actors who should play Mr Fantastic, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, The Thing, and even, Doctor Doom.
The fan casts have been dominated by John Krasinski as Reed Richards, and Sue Storm was played by Emily Blunt. John Krasinski has gone very far to express interest in the role, but he is not the only actor who is hoping to play the role of Reed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Washington was asked about the possibility of him playing a superhero in the future in a new interview with Nerd Reactor. While he did not have a particular character in his mind that he would like to play, but he was open to the idea of joining either of the comics, Marvel or DC.
The interviewer then asked him about what would be his response if Feige asked him to play the role of Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He replied by saying this, “Wow, I’d say, ‘Well, thank you for having me, thank you for taking this meeting, where do I sign?”
Washington has become a bright young star in Hollywood over the last few years. After a role in Ballers, his breakout performance came as the lead of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. He’s now out in the public eye again thanks to his leading role as The Protagonist in Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet.
