Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo recently revealed where he would take the Star Wars franchise.
The future of Star Wars on the big screen is in doubt at the moment after the end of the Skywalker Saga. There is currently a film scheduled for 2022 with several films in development from Rian Johnson, J.D. Dillard, Taika Waititi, and Kevin Feige. While many directors tend to shy away from a massive project like Star Wars, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo haven’t been shy about their interest in a galaxy far, far away.
Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige is producing an upcoming Star Wars project and it’s very possible that he could tap the Avengers: Endgame directors to helm the mysterious film. While speaking with ComicBook.com, Joe Russo revealed what he would like to explore in the Star Wars universe:
‘I mean, I love the sandbox that [Jon] Favreau is playing in right now, and the timeframe that he’s exploring in the Star Wars universe. I mean, obviously it was hugely important to us as kids and hugely important to our desire to become filmmakers. I don’t know that there’s particularly [a character]… I mean, I think a lot of the stories have been told that started with the original universe. I’d be interested in seeing completely new directions in the story and maybe new characters in a completely different time period would be really interesting.”
