I don’t get that at all. Don’t know why they didn’t stick with the dude from the office. I thought he was perfect.
Adam Driver reportedly in final talks to play Reed Richards in Fantastic Four
According to a new rumor, Marvel Studios might have finally made one of the most important casting decisions of The Multiverse Saga. In a Patreon post, Marvel scooper Daniel Richtman claimed that Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is in final talks to star in the MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot as Reed Richards, aka Mister Fantastic.
Driver (6'2.5") is even taller than Jackman (6'1.5") and Jackman is nearly 11 inches taller than Wolverine (5'3") of the comics. Heck, even Tom Cruise is 4 inches taller than Wolverine of the comics.I think he could pull of Wolverine, actually. He's much too tall to match the comic lore, but so was Jackman.
