Comic book genius Stan Lee is someone who can really think outside the box, and the creator of superheroes is so used to pushing the envelope of exciting storytelling that he came up with his craziest idea yet - a crossover between the world of Star Wars and the Avengers.
While speaking to The Big Issue, Lee said that he has been entertaining thoughts of bringing the two worlds together, as far apart as they might seem.
"Obviously the people who produce these (movies) are looking to be as successful as possible," Lee said. "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!"
It also helps that the rights to most Marvel characters and the Star Wars franchise are all owned by Disney. So should they decide to merge the superhero realm to the galaxy far, far away, then anything is possible.
When the topic of the upcoming Marvel film "Captain America: Civil War" came up, Lee lit up. It will be the first time Fox-owned Spider-Man will appear in a film alongside other superheroes such as Captain America, Iron Man, and Black Widow.
With this development, Lee believes that it won't take long before their world opens up for characters of the "X-Men" films as well as "Guardians of the Galaxy."
"It'll be the most expensive film ever produced!" Lee said. "I don't know how many characters you can have in a movie but anything that the public want to see you can be sure it will eventually be produced."
Crossovers might be a new thing to the movie-making industry, but Lee said that it's something they have been doing a long time ago in comic books.
"I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them. We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun, all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!" he said.
Disney is now working on "Star Wars: Episode VIII" after the enormous success of J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which starred the original cast Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill. They also introduced new cast members and characters such as Daisy Ridley's Rey and John Boyega's Finn.
