DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Concept Art Reveals Alternate Mister Fantastic Costume Designs

Newly revealed concept art from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness highlights a number of alternate designs for John Krasinski's Earth-838 Mister Fantastic Variant. Take a closer look here...

The Office alum John Krasinski had long been a fan-favourite choice to play Mister Fantastic and the actor finally got the chance to do so as a member of The Illuminati in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Added during reshoots, Reed Richards' role in the sequel was far too brief and his death at the hands of the Scarlet Witch...well, the less said about that, the better. Even so, it was a blast to see Krasinski suit up and a nice surprise to see the stretchy superhero make his MCU debut on Earth-838.

Unfortunately, Krasinski isn't expected to play the MCU's Reed Richards in Matt Shakman's Fantastic Four reboot, though some impressive names - including Matt Smith and Jake Gyllenhaal - are said to be in the running.

Concept art from the Doctor Strange sequel has now been revealed which offers a first look at the different costume designs considered for Reed in the movie. Among them is a blue and white version harkening back to one of the team's classic comic book looks.

While Reed's role was brief, Multiverse of Madness writer Michael Waldron always planned on throwing the hero into the mix. "I always wanted Reed Richards in this thing," he revealed last year. "In my very first draft, I wrote a tag just for the hell of it, of the events of the movie being recorded and reviewed by somebody in the Baxter Building, and a stretchy hand coming into frame to run it back."

"Reed is probably my favourite Marvel comics character," Waldron added, "so I was always gunning to get him in here somewhere."

Check out this new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness concept art below.

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Marvel Cinematic Universe unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. We'll journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

The movie's cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stühlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. 

The film is directed by Sam Raimi, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Loki Head Writer Michael Waldron. 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now streaming on Disney+.

Dan Slott's relaunch in 2016. Cool design, not a fa of the stories.

Woah the white boots and gloves would go hard on a punisher or bullseye design

@JFerguson - My general perspective is: if Punisher is the main character, then dressing Frank like Ennis does, t-shirt and leather jacket, makes the most sense.

But when we see Punisher from the heroes' POV? Tight spandex, bandolier belt that makes the teeth of the skull, and bright, white booties. It's somehow more terrifying from their perspective if this guy who would be Kesey from Death Wish in another world, dresses like they do because that's just how people operating outside the law dress in the Marvel world.

I would have preferred the classic white boots/gloves/accents and blue suit, especially considering it's a version of the character who is older and likely will not resurface.

The version we got was very "MCU", where it could have been more "multiverse" if that makes any sense at all.

Really like the Ultimate Universe inspired design.

The classic electric blue uniform with the black colar is the way to go, nothing beats this old school take. Then again, not that hard to believe that the MCU chose to go with the overdesigned layered take.

The fact that we are being robbed of Krazinski not being Reed is the reason why I'm more critical of the MCU again and why I skip movies

@KaptainKhaos - They shot themselves in the foot with that cameo. because now they have to cast someone even better or the entire internet will keep talking about "but what if we had Krasinski"...

Nice to finally see some official art of Mr Fantastic even though it's just concept art. Now the rest of the Illuminati.

I finally watched FF 2015 2 days ago.

First 40min I thought "this movie is actually ok, good cast, good cinematography, decent dialogues"
Then they go to the other dimension and everything goes to shit for the next 50 min. The CGI looks like they were made in 2000. Dr Doom's costume is a [frick]ing joke, the movie stops making sense, and the reshoots with Sue Storms bad wig are so obvious.

I don't expect marvel to make a masterpiece, but it sure can't be worse than what Fox did. Wtf

I liked the suit they went with. Looks less cheesy than the others. But if they do set F4 back in the 50’s I wouldn’t mind seeing the white and blue version more akin to the suits in the original comics.

@slickrickdesigns - I think the rumors are that the movie will start off in the 60's (probably '62), in which case I'd agree that using the OG bright blue and white costumes would be perfect, especially if they go with a certain early 60's visual theme for that part of the movie (i.e. when everything was all bright and shiny and optimistic before the mid-late 60's happened with the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, JFK's assassination, hippies, etc.) They could be portrayed as public heroes and go up against someone kinda cheesy like Mole Man.

Then when they end up in our time (via the Quantum Realm or whatever), they could upgrade to the more "tactical" black and darker blue outfits. They'll just have to be careful not to make it too similar to "CA:TFA" if they go this route, even though that movie was over a decade ago.
