Despite A Quiet Place II on track to earn more than its predecessor, Krasinki has previously revealed the studio has yet to pull the trigger on a third flick.

“I haven’t heard from the studio that they want a third one,” Krasinski confessed. “But the good news is that the studio and I are on the same page in that this isn’t one of those franchises where we keep pumping them out if they make money. I think we’ve proven that this is an original idea that is really beloved by people in a way that… I don’t want to break that promise to people.”

On the press tour for A Quiet Place II, we sat down with the actor to talk about fans continually fan casting him as Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards in the MCU. As Krasinski says, he'd love to do it.

"I would love to do it," Krasinski told us. "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 announcements of what the hell's happening with that as much as you are."
