Taking a page of out ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, it is being claimed that the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel will also feature a multitude of celebrity cameos, with Krasinski being one of them. A fanmade poster featuring the ‘Jack Ryan’ star is already doing the rounds online.

Krasinki has been a fan favourite for the role for years, with the actor himself speaking about wanting to be a part of the MCU in March 2020.

“I would love to do it. I think to be a part of the Marvel world would be amazing anyway, and the fact that people would even consider me for that level of a part would be amazing. I genuinely have had no conversations or don’t know anything that’s happening with that. I’m awaiting Kevin’s [Feige, Marvel head] announcements of what the hell’s happening with that as much as you are,” Krasinski told ComicBook.com.

Fans won’t have to wait too long to see whether Krasinski is a part of the MCU, with ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ scheduled to release on May 4.
