After expressing interest in playing Reed Richards during a press event for his latest film, A Quiet Place, John Krasinski – alongside his wife and co-star Emily Blunt – is now the star of some fairly convincing fan art. In addition to Krasinski and Blunt as Reed “Mr. Fantastic” Richards and Sue “Invisible Woman” Storm, respectively, Zac Efron is featured as Johnny “Human Torch” Storm, while wrestler-turned-actor John Cena stars as Ben “The Thing” Grimm. The art, posted on Twitter by BossLogic, even has brief explanations as to why he chose Efron and Cena to fill out the cast.

He brings up a good point. Cena has been steadily improving with each of his roles, effectively stealing the show in Kay Cannon’s Blockers. And I’d generally agree that The Thing isn’t an especially complex character. He’s a badass, gentle giant, with decent potential as a comic relief character. All of that is in Cena’s wheelhouse, the issue is whether or not people would take him seriously in the role. He’s mostly done comedy roles because his celebrity is still a novelty. But if he were to be cast as Ben Grimm, it could catapult him into full-blown movie star status.

I’m not even going to argue Efron as the Human Torch because it’s just too perfect. Obviously, Krasinski and Blunt seem tailor-made to play Richards and Storm. At this point, it’s just a matter of whether or not Marvel wants to play ball with fans and actually make this a reality. As long as Krasinski and Blunt are cast, we’ll be happy, but these are some pretty decent suggestions, and the fan art only further solidifies how much the Quiet Place family needs to be as involved with this project as possible.

Lastly, BossLogic posted about Dr. Doom, and the caption is actually pretty funny:

Legion creator Noah Hawley has already expressed serious interest in doing a Dr. Doom movie. Whether or not he’d be willing to do that movie for the MCU is unclear, but unlikely. Hawley’s vision for Legion is as radical as can be. Fox’s X-Men films have progressively been taking more and more risks, culminating in the one-two-three punch of Deadpool, Legion, and Logan. Noah Hawley doesn’t strike me as someone who’d want to have to deal with all of the MCU’s restrictions and studio interference. However, Mads Mikkelsen has expressed interested in playing the role, despite co-starring in the MCU’s Doctor Strange. Unfortunately, that kind of rules him out as Dr. Doom in the MCU, but crazier things have happened!

A synopsis of A Quiet Place, which is in theaters now:

In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.

If enough people make a fuss, Marvel might just cast them to save face.
