POLL: Which Major Actor Should Star in Kevin Feige’s Star Wars?
Last night brought the exciting news that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is developing a Star Wars movie with Kathleen Kennedy! Feige has already reportedly told a major actor that there is a role for them if the project gets off the ground. ComingSoon.net wants to hear from their readers which big star they think should be the lead in this film! Will it be an MCU star? Will it be an Oscar winner? Let us know your choice in the poll below!
Feige has long been a vocal fan of the Star Wars franchise, going so far as to include a character getting a hand/limb severed in EVERY Phase 2 movie from Marvel Studios as a nod to Luke Skywalker’s hand amputation in The Empire Strikes Back. Countless jokes and references to the galaxy far, far away have been peppered into the MCU as well, such as Peter Parker’s reference to “that old movie” (also referring to Episode V).
When could the film be released? It’s unclear, but might not be for a few years. Both Feige and Lucasfilm have their hands full with a variety of projects. Marvel Studios just unveiled a slate of films and television series through at least 2022, plus the recent acquisition of the 20th Century Fox brand means the X-Men and Fantastic Four will be having their own homecoming to the MCU in the near future. As for Lucasfilm, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will debut this December, with three more untitled Star Wars movies already set for 2022, 2024, and 2026. It’s believed that these release dates belong to the trilogy from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’, but a trilogy from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson also remains in development with likely other unannounced Star Wars projects in the wings (not to mention Indiana Jones and Children of Blood and Bone).
