When news broke that Marvel Studios President and Cinematic Universe mastermind Kevin Feige is developing a Star Wars film for LucasFilm, fans’ minds were racing as to what they could expect, with Feige apparently already thinking of a major star for a role in the project.
But depending on what Feige has planned that mysterious cast could already be getting bigger.
You see, Marvel Cinematic Universe mainstay Chris Evans – who previously played Captain America in several of Feige’s Marvel films including 2019’s Avengers: Endgame – has suggested that he’d be interesting in being a part of Feige’s take on Star Wars, replying to a tweet by website Collider about fans’ hopes for the cast.

Clearly, Evans had a good enough time with Feige over the last eight years or so to sign up with him again – and he’s not alone.

As it turns out, Evans’ fellow Marvel captain Brie Larson (aka Carold Danvers/Captain Marvel) had already appeared to be lobbying for a job in Feige’s new film earlier that day – and fans were predictably excited to imagine the pair in a galaxy far, far away.
Brie Larson AND Chris Evans in Star Wars?!
Why, yes, I think I love that.

I absolutely LOVE how the "news" and videos went from "Disney lost confidence in Brie Larson" to "Disney wants Brie Larson to lead Star Wars" in less than a week LMFAO

I love how Brie Larson is just as much of a nerd as the rest of us, she seems like a big Star Wars fan
Personally, I’d love to see what she could bring to the franchise. She’s a great actress, it all just depends on the writing https://t.co/cfeig4sSVo

So will Larson and Evans actually join Feige’s new Star Wars movie? Well, it’s early days – as far as we can tell Feige doesn’t even have a director or a writer attached yet – but given his background, we wouldn’t be too surprised to see an Avenger or two assemble in Feige’s cast. Watch this space.
