The Star Wars franchise and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are two of the greatest cinematic universes of all time. While the much newer MCU didn’t start until 2008, Star Wars has been a pop culture staple for over forty years. And fans are wondering if the two franchises will have a crossover anytime soon. Now Kevin Feige has tried to purify the air.
Conversely, Walt Disney acquired both Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm in the 2010s, the Bothe franchises featured many of the same actors and used a few of the same directors. Marvel Studios chief Fiege also got involved in Star Wars after announcing he was producing an upcoming mystery film. This has led many to believe that Feige could take over Lucasfilms.
However, Kevin Feige has now tried to shut down the rumors in a recent conversation with Yahoo Entertainment. When asked if there was a possibility that Marvel and Star Wars would “collide in the same movie,” he replied, “If you’re asking me if anything we’re talking about right now was in the realm of possible 20 years ago, I would have said “I don’t think so”. But I really don’t think so with it. I don’t think there is any reason for this.
While there isn’t an onscreen crossover, we’re already seeing crossovers behind the scenes. Feige hired Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and writer Loki Michael Waldron to write for the mysterious Star Wars movie.
Meanwhile, a new list of programs for the two franchises was unveiled at Disney’s Investors Day event in December. The roster also includes titles and cast for Marvel’s Phase 4 lineup and several upcoming Star Wars shows for Disney +.
Recently, Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision kicked off MCU’s Phase 4, and the studio isn’t handing over any stones to make it as big as possible. The studio is also showcasing an openly gay superhero for an upcoming project.
