Filmmaking is a very audience-conscience medium — if filmgoers want something bad enough, it’s likely they’ll get it. That’s the reason why the “Hollywood ending” — where the hero saves the girl and the day — is so popular. So, now that Disney has Star Wars and Marvel under its umbrella, what would happen if the people beckoned for a film where both universes meet? According to comic book legend Stan Lee, it’s more than likely.
“If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it,” Lee says in an interview with The Big Issue. “Can you imagine Spider-Man saying, ‘May the force be with you?’ It may come to that!”
It would probably take a lot of setting up for the Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe to get on the same page, so don’t expect a Jedi to suddenly appear in Avengers: Infinity War Part II. But, as the old adage goes, never say never.
“I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them,” Lee says. “We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun, all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!”
