This James Bond Alum Was Reportedly Set To Play A Key Illuminati Role In Doctor Strange 2 

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is filled with shocking scenes, shocking surprises, and comic book appearances.  

But none of the film’s sequences or set pieces have created the same amount of controversy among comic book fans as its Illuminati sequence. 

The mighty roster of the team includes famous comic book heroes such as Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Black Bolt (Anson Mount) as well as Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).  

The Captain Marvel variant of Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) is also part of the team and so is a version that is Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) who was the original Avenger in place of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). 

The character’s appearance on screen has created quite a controversy in the minds of MCU fans. 

It appears, however, that Krasinski might not be the one Marvel Studios always wanted to portray Reed Richards in “Multiverse of Madness.” 

In a tweet from a few days ago, Deadline Senior Film Reporter Justin Kroll claimed that John Krasinski was not Marvel Studios’ “first choice” to be Reed Richards in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” 

In fact, Kroll says that Marvel initially wanted to include the former James Bond actor Daniel Craig be one of the Fantastic Four leaders in the film. 

Still, the plans changed after Craig decided to pull off the project due to the fact that he was not willing to take the risk of getting COVID-19 and the disease to the members of his family.
