So, a Star Wars/Avengers crossover?
Suffice to say, Stan Lee has quite the imagination!
Talking with The Big Issue, Lee let drop that Disney, which owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm, would/could consider bridging the two franchises if they deemed it would be a big enough success.
"I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them," Lee said. "We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want for future movies. That might be fun, all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!"
I'm going to take all of this as Lee riffing off the top of his head during a bigger interview. At least, I hope so. And I hope no one at Disney listened too hard or took any of what he said too seriously. I love Marvel, I love Star Wars, but I don't ever want to see the two franchises merge. At all. Period.
What say you, Basementites?
