Kevin Feige Has a ‘Major Actor’ In Mind For His Star Wars Movie
The dorkternet remains absolutely consumed with speculation around the announcement last night that Marvel’s Kevin Feige is collaborating with Lucasfilm on a Star Wars film. Although the initial report on the news in The Hollywood Reporter was very light on concrete details, there was one additional tidbit of potential information about Feige’s Star Wars movie (emphasis mine)...
Some see this move as a prelude to a larger role for Feige within Lucasfilm, while others say it merely reflects the Marvel executive’s passion for the franchise. A top Disney source says Kennedy remains in charge with no plans for any changes. One knowledgeable source says Feige has told a major actor that there’s a specific role he would like that person to play if and when he makes the movie.
So the big question is: Who is this mystery “major actor” that Kevin Feige is quietly recruiting to join him in a galaxy far, far away? While there’s absolutely zero guarantee it’s someone Feige has worked with before, it makes sense in this context to assume he has. He’d have to have enough of a relationship with the actor to trust them enough not to spill the beans on this most secretive of projects. Logic strongly suggests it’s someone Feige knows well.
But who? Here are five potential suspects:
It could be any of these actors — or someone else entirely. Check back here in, oh, probably four years when Feige is on the press tour for Star Wars: Jedi Another Day, and someone asks him what major actor he had in mind and he finally tells us the truth to see if we guessed right.
