This comes from a fresh post on X by Daniel Richtman, which asked fans for their creation on the possible casting of Jake Gyllenhaal as Reeds Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four as the MCU expands and is ready to fuel new exciting characters. As its previous adaptations were a massive critical and commercial failure, the teams get another chance to come up as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, not every fan is rooting for Gyllenhaal instead of John Krasinski and Adam Driver:

Many believe that Jake Gyllenhaal who’s lauded for slaying the role of Spider-Man’s adversaries and supervillain Mysterio in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will fit in his role itself. As he already exists in the universe as a supervillain, taking the lead in the upcoming Fantastic Four would be too odd to handle especially when enthusiasts wish to see John Krasinski who’s already introduced as one Reed Richards variant in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
