Besides Jon Favreau, there are many notable actors playing both MCU and “Star Wars” characters such as Paul Bettany, Rosario Dawson, Benicio del Toro, Donald Glover, Oscar Isaac, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong. Natalie Portman, Andy Serkis, Stellan Skarsgård and Forest Whitaker. There is already a lot of tangible overlap between the MCU and “Star Wars” on screen, just as there is overlap between the various movies and TV shows set in the MCU. Favreau’s experience working with Marvel and now Lucasfilm has given him a unique insight into how the two studios inform each other behind the scenes:
“I’ll talk [Marvel Studios president] We regularly watch Kevin Feige and each other’s stuff. Frankly, I worked in the MCU and I’ve been dealing with people who worked on ‘Star Wars’ for a long time. There’s a lot of overlap and it’s definitely in the fanbase. I think one informs the other, that’s the nature of storytelling, both technologically and stylistically.”
We hear periodic updates about new “Star Wars” movies that are still in production from Disney and Lucasfilm. Developed by Damon Lindelof With “Mrs. Marvel” director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Meanwhile, last year’s two newest “Star Wars” shows “Andor” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” brought lead actors Diego Luna and Ewan McGregor from the big screen to the big screen.
How soon we’ll start to see “Star Wars” cross-pollinate in the other direction is a question in the air right now. With a little luck, maybe one day you’ll see Mando and Grogu come to a theater near you.
