A fan artist has edited a promotional image imagining Dune star Timothée Chalamet as Spider-Man opposite Zendaya’s MJ from Spider-Man: No Way Home. Ridge, which opened this end of the week, follows Paul Atreides as his administration official father is assigned to the desert planet Arakis in a move meant to sabotage him. While struggle sears on the planet’s surface, Paul should overcome his fear and save the fate of his family. The film, which stars Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, and Josh Brolin in addition to Chalamet and Zendaya, beat its Warner Bros. peer, The Suicide Squad, on its premiere night film industry by a cool $1 million.

On Instagram, Parisian artist and graphic architect Samuel Cheve posted a piece of hybrid artwork that brighten up Entertainment Weekly’s Dune cover photo featuring Zendaya and Chalamet. The artist specializes in these sorts of mashups, with past pieces including Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man as Venom and Mulan as a contestant on Squid Game. This time, he harnessed Zendaya’s amazing fall season to imagine what it may look like if Chalamet ventured into Holland’s point of view as the Peter Parker to her MJ. Look at the post underneath:

The artist also shared a look at the original images so watchers can see the improvement of translating the actors into their Spider-Man selves. By adding a cityscape background and placing Chalamet in the classic Spidey lycra, Cheve totally altered the original “fashion take shots at nightfall” vibe. Individuals looking through their Instagram feeds would be pardoned for thinking this was an actual image from a Marvel film right away.

Samuel Cheve very well could be on to something. The Spider-Man films and their intellectual property have been dependent upon a long corporate back-and-forth, to the point that the cast and team of Spider-Man: Far From Home wasn’t educated about the contractual impasse among Sony and Marvel at the time. If Holland eventually leaves the job or a contending Spider-Man film gets greenlit after Spider-Man: No Way Home, studios may simply want to tap the Dune star to venture into the Spidey suit.
