Could John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Join the FANTASTIC FOUR?

John Krasinski says he’d love if he and his better half Emily Blunt got to join the Fantastic Four. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed if they could be the ones to finally get the characters right on the big screen, along with Russo Brothers plea to fans about spoilers, and our reactions to Ready Player One.

Today’s guest host Amy Vorpahl was joined by senior editor Dan Casey, Nerdist News writer Aliza Pearl, and producer Erin Vail, and they began with John Krasinski’s comments to Screen Rant. While doing press for The Quiet Place, he said he’d love to join the MCU as Mr. Fantastic, with his wife Emily Blunt playing the Invisible Woman. It would work. Would we like to see that happen?

Speaking of the MCU, Infinity War directors the Russo brothers are asking Avengers fans not to spoil the movie before other people get to see it. But we’ve all met social media, and it’s hard to imagine people will respect their wishes. So, we had to discuss whether  spoilers actually ruin a movie.

Finally, reactions to Ready Player One seem split after its opening weekend. What did we think of it, and how did it compare to the book? Which scenes were better, the ones in the OASIS or the live-action sequences?
