Could a lightsaber cut through vibranium? Who would win in a fight: Luke Skywalker or Iron Man? These are just some of the many arguments discussed by Marvel and Star Wars fans across the world. Sadly, we may never be getting a definitive answer to these and other questions on screen.
With President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige soon to be helming a future Star Wars movie, many hoped the two franchises could theoretically be growing ever closer to a massive crossover.
Feige, however, recently squashed any hopes that the two worlds could be colliding at some time in the future. In a discussion with Yahoo Entertainment, Feige laid out his quick and simple answer about why the two Disney properties wouldn’t cross-over.
"If you’d ask me if anything we’re talking about right now was in the realm of possibility 20 years ago, I would’ve said, “I don’t think so.”But I really don’t think so. I don’t think there’s any reason for it."
Both franchises already have a lot on their hands as is. Due to the numerous movies, Disney+ series, comics, and books each franchise already has on schedule, a crossover would take a huge amount of restructuring and coordination that would change each universe forever.
Even without a crossover, fans of each property have plenty to look forward to.
Alongside their many upcoming Disney+ series and movies starring already established characters, Marvel fans await the arrival X-Men and Fantastic Four to the MCU.
Star Wars fans also already have much to be excited for, as we grow ever closer to the return of Ewen McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader in the upcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi.
It makes sense that the two franchises would stay on their separate paths considering all they have planned out in the future despite the hopes of fans.
Maybe that’s for the best though, considering each franchise is doing extremely well on its own. However tempting it may be to put Darth Vader and Thanos on screen together, Disney appears committed to keeping the two franchises separate for now.
