Despite this, the actor also seems to be of the opinion that his Reed Richards days are over.
“There were no discussions at all, the only conversation I had was actually in the penultimate week of Jack Ryan” has unveiled the former face of The Office. “Kevin Feige has me called and he said ‘Would you ever come to LA and would you play with us for a day?’ I was honored to do so” explained the actor, recounting how it was a decision made on the spot. “It’s totally insane. To be in a room with all those people, and be a part of that story, it’s crazy. But yes, being turned into spaghetti was not my ultimate goal in life as far as the Marvel universe is concerned, but it was still fun” he said, hinting as the end of the character was a little bittersweet for him.
