‘Let’s make that dream come true.’ said the Marvel president Kevin Feige making it clear that John Krasinki was Mister Fantastic only in an alternate universe hinting that John Krasinki may not be seen again in the MCU.  The Director of Doctor Strange 2 movie, Sam Raimi revealed that Kevin Fiege cast John Krasinki to make the fans’ casting come true. 

“It’s so funny that Kevin [Feige] cast John [Krasinski] because the fans had a dream of who the perfect Reed Richards would be. And because this is an alternate universe, I think Kevin said, ‘Let’s make that dream come true.’ I’ve always really enjoyed all of his performances.’”

John Krasinski’s short appearance is similar to casting Evan Peters as a fake Quicksilver on WandaVision for the sake of a joke. Marvel killing the character of Krasinski’s Reed Richards is a sign that they just wanted to satisfy the fans.
