TMZ reported that the characters in the background are Captain Marvel, though not the Brie Larson version of the character, Captain Carter and Black Bolt.

Legendary actor Patrick Stewart will reportedly reprise his role as Charles Xavier from the X-Men franchise for the movie.

The film, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Dr. Stephen Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, after he uses a forbidden spell to walk into alternate universes.

However, a threat emerges that will force Strange and his trusty ally Wong (Benedict Wong) to seek out the help of the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

Fans have thought Krasinski would play a great Mr. Fantastic for a long time with many of them photoshopping the costume on pictures of him.

In addition, the A Quiet Place director also has ties to the MCU. Years ago, the husband of Emily Blunt auditioned to play Captain America and got as far as a screen test before the role went to Chris Evans.

Krasinski even put on the Captain America suit though he explained seeing one Marvel actor’s ripped body really put a damper on the situation.

‘I was putting on the suit, just watching it, I was like, “This is so amazing,” he said in an interview on Conan back in 2016. ‘And I got about right to my waist and was still shirtless, feeling pretty good about myself. It wasn’t 13 Hours yet, but I felt pretty good.

‘And all of a sudden Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor and he’s like ‘Hey, mate,’ and I went ‘I’m good, this is stupid. It’s okay. I’m not Captain America.”‘
