With the two biggest movie franchises in history both under the control of Disney, comic book legend Stan Lee has been talking to Big Issue about the chances of us ever seeing a crossover between Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I don’t know how many characters you can have in a movie but obviously the people who produce these things are looking to be as successful as possible,” states Lee. “If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it. Can you imagine Spider-Man saying: ‘May the force be with you’? It may come to that! We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun too – all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!”
While Stan is surely being a tad optimistic about the chances of a crossover, a comic book series from Marvel may not be beyond the realm of possibility, given the huge success that the publisher is having with its Star Wars titles. But as for a move, well surely that’s a step too far?
