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.

Following his star-making role as Eddie Munson in Stranger Things, Joseph Quinn has found his next big project as he is in negotiations to for a leading role opposite Lupita Nyong’o, who is starring, in Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One. The spinoff will be directed and written by Pig helmer Michael Sarnoski.
Not much more is known about this project other than it not being a threequel but rather a spinoff, based on an idea from John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two films. The hope is this film will help set up a potential Quiet Place universe that the studio can build on for years to come. It also is known that, while not out of the question, Emily Blunt and Krasinski likely won’t reprise their roles in this installment. The film is set to bow on March 8, 2024.
The original franchise is currently developing the third film, with Krasinski returning to direct that pic, which is set to bow sometime in 2025.
