Guy Richie.

Joss Whedon.

Whedon is the great mind behind both The Avengers and The Avengers Age of Ultron. He has written more than he has directed, but that doesn’t mean he can’t conduct himself while sitting in the director’s chair.

As the director of the leading super hero movie, Whedon has captured the essence of good vs evil, which would be a perfect fit for Star Wars. Joss has been nominated for 1 Oscar, has won 24 different awards, and 42 other nominations.
