Jake Gyllenhaal who played Mysterio in “Spider-Man: Far From Home” receives an offer to portray Reed Richards.

The “Fantastic Four Reboot” is grabbing headlines, especially because of some interesting rumors. One of those rumors is that Jake Gyllenhaal, the actor who played Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home has been offered the role of Mister Fantastic after Matt Smith rejected it.

Marvel Studios has big plans for Matt Shakman’s reboot. They aim to introduce the well-known Fantastic Four family into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The family will join forces with mutants and other superheroes to take on some tough villains.

There’s also talk about who will play the different characters, like Adam Driver, Vanessa Kirby, Margot Robbie, and Daveed Diggs.  This epic crossover promises to be a thrilling addition to the MCU.

These rumors haven’t got any confirmation yet, but if they come true it would be the second time Marvel has chosen an actor to play two different characters. The first time was with Gemma Chan, who was in both Captain Marvel and Eternals as different people.

For the moment, “Fantastic Four Reboot” is set to release on 2nd May 2025. The official announcement will be made after the SAG-AFTRA strike is over.
