5 Marvel Characters Daniel Craig Would Be Perfect To Play

Because playing 007 in the last five James Bond movies is what ultimately turned Daniel Craig into a household name, the iconic MI-6 agent will forever be the role that he is best remembered for (if not Benoit Blanc in 2019’s Knives Out and its upcoming sequel on Netflix). However, recent rumors have claimed that the British actor was originally slated to appear in the newest of the Marvel movies, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as – SPOILER WARNING – Illuminati leader Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four. While audiences were still happy to see former The Office cast member John Krasinski stretching his legs as the physicist-turned-superhero in the finished film, this new alleged information does beg the question, is Craig still destined for a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Having closed the book on his tenure as 007 with 2021’s No Time to Die, the actor has room in his schedule for yet another franchise, so why not the most popular shared universe in Hollywood right now? While this would not actually be his first comic book adaptation, having appeared in an episode of HBO’s Tales from the Crypt and later appearing in director Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin in 2011, it would be his very first time starring in any new superhero movies (or TV shows, even). I already have a few Marvel characters in mind for Craig to play, staring with another hero he was allegedly considered for.
