With the sequel trilogy forged seemingly achieved with the saga, Star Wars will want some new on-screen expertise going ahead. The Mandalorian already pushed the franchise into new territory — live-action tv — for the very first time. But it sounds increasingly more seemingly that some Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) stars will journey over to the “galaxy far, far away” quickly.

Marvel Studios and ‘Star Wars’ are each owned by Disney

Like Star Wars, the MCU is a sprawling, interconnected shared universe stuffed with limitless potential. But the massive distinction between the 2 is how Marvel Studios has constructed fan goodwill. With greater than 20 motion pictures launched, the MCU has solely grown extra standard. Meanwhile, the Disney period of Star Wars has left the fan base extra divided than ever.

So most MCU actors, writers, and administrators already naturally match into Star Wars. The incontrovertible fact that each franchises are owned by The Walt Disney Company makes issues even simpler. Marvel tends to lock down particularly actors to long-term contracts. But the connective tissue between the 2 Disney flagships means sharing expertise is way more accessible.

1 ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star has teased a possible reunion with Taika Waititi

Jon Favreau (Iron Man) and Oscar winner Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) have each efficiently jumped from the MCU to Star Wars with The Mandalorian. And Waititi is signed to direct and co-write a brand new Star Wars film too. Speaking to Insider, Jeff Goldblum — who appeared in Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok — has now teased a brand new challenge with him. Could or not it’s Star Wars?

I’m a fan of [The Mandalorian]. I’m a fan, in fact, of Taika Waititi. I like him, at all times did earlier than I even labored with him. And perhaps we’ll do one thing once more collectively. We’ve talked about doing one thing else that needs to be secret proper now however I might do something with him, positive. And Disney Plus are only a nice bunch of individuals to be related to. They are an exquisite household, how sensible and candy and sort they’re.

Goldblum isn’t solely within the MCU, in fact. He has his personal Disney+ documentary collection, The World According to Jeff Goldblum. So he’s much more entrenched within the House of Mouse than most. Since Waititi is probably going within the early levels of his Star Wars film, it’s very potential he has talked with Goldblum about becoming a member of the challenge when it will get totally up and operating.

Perhaps Goldblum will return as The Grandmaster within the MCU

Waititi does have one other Disney film within the works, 2022’s Thor: Love and Thunder. His second MCU film, the sequel will see Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman return to the MCU. So there’s a probability Goldblum might merely be referring to reprising his Marvel position for that film.

After all, followers beloved his efficiency as The Grandmaster. And although the character’s destiny appeared bleak, he technically survived the occasions of Thor: Ragnarok. Few stars complement Waititi’s quirky humorousness the way in which Goldblum does. Perhaps then the director and star will head again to the MCU collectively. Fans must wait and see.
