"Well... that's a wrap on #PartII See you on March 20th!," Krasinski wrote.
"Can't wait!!," Evans replied.
Many people commented on the post:

"WOW MY KINGS," @downeysreactor added
Someone took the opportunity to request that Evans use his pull with Marvel to get Krasinski and Blunt in the Fantastic Four, and based on the comments' likes, they definitely aren't alone in wanting to see the couple in the MCU:

Krasinski co-wrote the first Quiet Place film with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, but he took on the scripting duties by himself for the second go-round. In an interview with ComicBook.com's Patrick Cavanaugh, Beck explained why he and Woods weren't as involved with the sequel.
"As creators of essentially the movie and the franchise, we always have our hand in the mix," Beck said. "But what was really funny about opening weekend last year is, it was almost immediate that the studio announced there'd be a sequel. What our reaction was, and what John's reaction was, like, 'I don't know if it needs a sequel.'
"We always envisioned it collectively as a standalone film, and very much like what Bryan and I were trying to mount on the wake of A Quiet Place is actually what we consider learning the right lesson, is that there actually is space for original ideas on a big theatrical level. So the decision that Bryan and I made was we'll be passively involved in it. And what was great was John ended up cracking an idea that he really loved and he took the ball and ran with it."
