Today is January 26 which means today is Joseph Quinn’s 29th birthday! Happy Birthday Joseph! We hope you get to spend the day with all your loved ones.
Joseph Quinn quickly became a fan-favorite following his appearance in Stranger Things Season 4. Now it appears that Joseph Quinn could be joining an even bigger franchise – the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This was revealed in a new report via GFR, where they stated that Quinn is currently in talks with the studio. And, furthermore, they’ve alleged that Joseph Quinn would be playing a superhero rather than a civilian or other kind of character. This should certainly have fans of both Joseph Quinn and Marvel very excited.
With that said, it’s currently unclear which part Joseph Quinn could be in talks for. Though they speculate that it might be none other than Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four film. This is based on Marvel’s announced slate of upcoming films and which characters still need to be cast.
Of course, actor John Krasinski recently played Reed Richards for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But this is a variant of the character and shouldn’t be considered the version from the main MCU. As such, Joseph Quinn would be our first official Reed Richards from Earth-616. Though this should all be taken with a grain of salt – it’s possible that Quinn will be playing someone else. Or, of course, he might not be playing anyone in the MCU at all. We’ll just have to wait and see.
As mentioned, Joseph Quinn’s character Eddie Munson was a big hit with Stranger Things fans. Sadly, it seems unlikely that he’ll have any additional involvement with that series. It makes sense then that he’d be ready to move onto another franchise. And it makes sense that Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios would want someone with that much appeal to join their shared universe.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional updates as we have them. The new Fantastic Four film is scheduled for February 14, 2025.
