Marvel’s renowned superhero family, The Fantastic Four, had their debut in 1961 and quickly gained popularity. Their family bond, which was strengthened by a space disaster, gives them amazing abilities. The Fantastic Four have been adapted for the big screen three times over the past 20 years, with actors Miles Teller and Ioan Gruffudd playing Reed Richards in the first two. The anticipation for the upcoming MCU film, Fantastic Four, has increased after John Krasinski recently made a surprise appearance as an alternative version of Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
