    It's disappointing that there's no interest in discussing your suggestion.
    If I knew who the actor is, I would have contributed :)
    Someone here must have heard about him.

    I‘ve never watched Wrestling. Saw Cena in Bumble Bee, Trainwreck, Vacation Friends and TSS.
    The only thing, where I can see him as BG ks hid body stature…and they can easily do this with every actor in mocap-suit
    NO to Cena for me

    Cena’s a better actor than I expected. I’d take him.

    if Cena ever gets a role in the MCU wouldn't, Thing, kinda be wasted potential for him... there are so many other characters that actually require someone of his physical stature

    other then a possible origin story, an a few flashback scenes, we probably wont see him in Human forum that much (an it isn't even necessary for Ben to be that big)

    it'd be mostly just mo-cap/ voice role...
    (it'd just be Vin Diesel as Groot all over again)

    save him for Hyperion, or someone like that

    Cena would have been a good choice for one of the Wrecking Crew, instead of the skinny guys they used. Would be kind of a waste of him though. It would have been kind of cool to have the Wrecking Crew be all pro wrestlers.

    I don’t understand why Marvel insists on ruining characters like Titania, The Wrecking Crew and many others we could name by just throwing them into shows with no concern for how they’re portrayed.

    Do they think they’re making us happy? I think I can probably speak for most fans in saying: “Either give us characters consistent with the comics or create new characters.”

    Don’t use characters from the comics and then change them to the point they’re unrecognizable.

    I didn't mind the wrecking crew, them being played by pro wrestlers would've been cool. But they're largely a joke. Even in the comics they're almost D-listers. So it seems like no major loss imo.

    Got to admit, those guys on She-Hulk didn't look like they could take on the Thing. They certainly didn't do well against She-Hulk.

    What we got in She Hulk was more of a parody of the wrecking crew. Either elevate the material or dont do it at all.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Thing appears in the second season of She-Hulk by the time it comes around.

    Yeah. What a missed opportunity. So much potential squandered.

    And it’s particularly frustrating because they had some great, fun characters and moments, but then stubbornly refused to follow norms and do silly things like actually have a story.:dry:

    So according to the latest rumour from Grace Randolph, Shakman is casting a Jewish actor or at least someone with Jewish roots for Ben.

    meaning
    Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Liev Schreiber, and even Jesse Plemons are all potential candidates

    Tony Revelori's Flash Thompson (whom a non-powered Peter Parker looks like he could beat) could probably at least hold his own with the Wrecking Crew from She-Hulk. :o

    There’s better things to say if you want to misdirect.
