“Avengers: Endgame”directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed where they might take the “Star Wars” universe if they are ever given the opportunity.

What’s going on?

  • The Russo brothers told ComicBook.com they would enjoy taking the franchise into an original space — somewhere they could play around with different ideas.
  • Joe Russo said: “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.”

  • The Russo Brothers told ComicBookMovie.com they do have interest in jumping into “Star Wars” eventually.
  •  Joe Russo said: “It’s an amazing world. Certainly, at some point, it would be exciting to play in that sandbox, but I think there’s a lot of stories being told in right now, and there’s a lot of great filmmakers working in it at the moment.” 

Kevin Feige could help

Marvel boss Kevin Feige has been tapped to develop a new “Star Wars”along side Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, as I wrote for theDeseret News. He reportedly had a “major actor” in mind for a specific role in movie.

Feige worked with the Russo brothers to create “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
