Both “Star Wars” and the “Avengers” have a sizable following. Will their fans soon join forces in support of a crossover film? Will the iconic characters from “Star Wars” soon work with Marvel’s biggest heroes?
According to StarWars.com, a crossover film has yet to be confirmed. However, Marvel will adapt “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in a six-issue comic book series. It will reportedly feature scenes from the movie. The series will be written by Chuck Wendig and illustrated by Luke Ross.
Marvel’s take on the most recent “Star Wars” movie is set to be released on June 22. In the meantime, you can check out the first issue’s cover on the franchise’s official website. It was illustrated by Esad Ribic.
Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and Poe might just meet Captain America, Black Widow and the other Avengers soon. A crossover could still be on the table. “Avengers” creator Stan Lee himself is open to the idea.
“That might be fun. All of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!” Lee earlier mused in an interview with The Big Issue. “I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them,” he explained. “We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies.”
The idea that his characters would interact with George Lucas’ creations also seems to amuse him. “Can you imagine Spider-Man saying, ‘May the force be with you?’ It may come to that!” Lee said. However, the comic book master did admit Marvel Studios has the final say in this matter. “Obviously, the people who produce these [movies] are looking to be as successful as possible,” he said. “If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it.”
