When James Bond’s Daniel Craig Almost Joined the MCU

The most recent James Bond actor Daniel Craig almost joined the MCU in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Two different sources say that Craig was set to cameo, but pulled out at the last minute because of COVID-19 concerns.



The only discrepancy in the reports are about which character he was supposed to play. Heavy Spoilers claim that the former James Bond was set to play Thor’s brother Balder the Brave, a character that had been rumored to be in the film for a while. While a senior editor over at Deadline, Justin Kroll, claims he was set to play Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four.



When Craig dropped out he was replaced by another fan-favorite actor but I won’t say who incase you haven’t seen the film yet. Of the two reports, I feel Craig would’ve been a better Balder than Reed, but either way I’d love to see the actor join the MCU at some point in the future.
