The man behind some of the biggest and greatest comic book characters has hinted that they might someday meet the cast of Star Wars on the big screen. What?

That’s right, he has hinted at the possibility.

“Well, I don’t know how many characters you can have in a movie but obviously the people who produce these things are looking to be as successful as possible,” 

”If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it. Can you imagine Spider-Man saying: ‘May the force be with you’? It may come to that!”

With the rights to Marvel’s movies under Disney as well as them owning the Star Wars franchise; there is a faint possibility that this might actually happen. Stan Lee also pointed out that similar things have happened with his works as well.

“We did it in the comics. I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them,” he said. “We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun too – all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!”

We’re not entirely sure what to think of this. On one hand seeing our fave heroes fight alongside a slew of Jedi sounds awesome, but at the same time it also sounds like that fanfic you wrote when you were 15. At any rate, you can catch the full interview with Stan Lee on The Big Issue here.
