Brie Larson and Chris Evans Want to be in Kevin Feige's Star Wars Story

Brie Larson and Chris Evans Want to be in Kevin Feige’s Star Wars Story. It’s been a weird week in Disney Entertainment. Spider-Man is back in the MCU, Kevin Feige will be producing a new Star Wars Story for Lucasfilm, and now two Marvel Stars want to join the Star Wars Universe!

News broke this week that Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, will be collaborating with Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy to develop and produce a new Star Wars Story after a meeting between the two and Disney Studios Chief, Alan Horn.

“We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox,” Horn said in a statement. “With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Warsfilm together.”

Fans and cast alike were excited about the news and both “Captain’s” from Marvel Studios want their shot at joining the Star Wars Universe, possibly in Feige’s new Star Wars Story.

Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame‘s Brie Larson shared a special story about Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury) that sparked her interest in becoming a Jedi. “I got to hold his [Jackson] lightsaber!” Larson exclaimed in an interview earlier this year. “He [Jackson] brought it to me on set on May the 4th, and I cried. It was so cool. I wanna be a Jedi.”

Now with his time at Marvel seemingly over, Chris Evans has his share of free time at the moment to move on to other projects and has thrown his cap and shield into the ring for a chance at being cast for a Star Wars Story.

Evans responded to Collider’s question on Twitter: “Which MCU actor would you like to see pop up in a #StarWars movie?” To which the simply and brilliantly replied: “Me.”

Collider seemed to love this answer and posted a Kermit the Frog meme saying the famous Emperor Palpatine line “Do it.”

We would love to see Brie Larson, Chris Evans, or both appear in a future Star Wars film and it never hurts to have work experience with the producer either! Larson and Evans would hardly be the first MCU actors to be seen in a Star Wars film. Actors such as Samuel L. Jackson (Mace Windu/Nick Fury), Paul Bettany (J.A.R.V.I.S./Vision/Drryden Vos), Ben Mendelsohn (Talos/Director Krennic), and Peter Serafinowicz (Voice of Darth Maul/ Garthan Saal, Nova Corp) have all made appearances in both Star Wars Films and films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Mandalorian Producer, Jon Favreau, has also directed Marvel’s Iron Man and starred in the Marvel films as Happy Hogan, Tony Stark’s best friend and boy guard.

Lucasfilm will be shifting the focus of the Star Wars Universe away from the Skywalker’s for a while after the release of Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, set to release December 20, 2019. After the completion of the Skywalker Saga (Episode 1-9), Lucasfilm will be focusing on other stories within the Star Wars Universe, some stories taking place a long time before Episode 1 and possibly new stories taking place a long, long time after the events of Episode 9. All puns intended.

Currently in production for Star Wars is The Mandalorian and a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and an untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor, and an untitled series about Rogue One‘s Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and K2-SO (Alan Tudyk) on Disney+. No other films or titles have been confirmed for production at the time of writing.
