Since Disney now owns each Marvel and Star Wars, there was an important quantity of crossover in their casting. Each new one comes with a brand new set of jokes from the geeky corners of the web, and each and every so ceaselessly, other people pose a reasonably extra critical query when anyone inside the global of a Marvel film makes connection with Star Wars motion pictures. According to Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed a number of Marvel films and are themselves giant Star Wars lovers, it’s really not as difficult as other people make it out to be. After all, other people seem like folks in the actual global all the time.
So, no — this is not a Last Action Hero more or less scenario, the place Arnold Schwarzenegger’s films have been all performed by way of Sylvester Stallone in-universe. Nobody else is enjoying Mace Windu in the Star Wars films that Tom Holland’s Peter Parker grew up staring at. Instead, Samuel L. Jackson seemed in Pulp Fiction and Star Wars and dozens of different motion pictures — and he simply occurs to be a useless ringer for Nick Fury. The similar will also be stated throughout the board for the more than a few Star Wars actors and different popular culture icons who seem in the Marvel films: they simply seem like well-known actors, it is not like the ones actors by no means existed.
“They just look like those characters,” Anthony Russo stated.
“Yes, Nick Fury just happens to look like [Samuel L. Jackson],” Joe Russo added, conceding that it almost definitely is tricky to be a super-spy whilst you glance similar to a well-liked actor.
This may just additionally give an explanation for one thing that lovers had been joking about and asking questions on since Captain Marvel: the incontrovertible fact that Stan Lee obviously exists inside the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Mallrats took place — however none (or a minimum of virtually none) of his dozens of Marvel cameos had been Stan enjoying himself. With Lee, in fact, issues are reasonably extra difficult by way of the incontrovertible fact that in the actual global he changed into well-known for growing the characters showing in Marvel’s films — however who is aware of? Maybe in the MCU, Lee’s non-superhero monster, romance, and different comics changed into large hits that pressure giant franchise tentpoles.
