On Sunday, Twitter again became a place where magical, nerdy dreams come true. First a fan tweeted at James Gunn asking the writer/director to find a role for Star Wars royalty Mark Hamill in Guardians of Galaxy Vol. 3.
Gunn didn't skip a beat, quickly expressing interest in meeting up with Hamill to discuss a role. Conveniently, the two are Malibu neighbors.
Hamill soon agreed to the meeting and, boom, we could be looking at an iconic casting crossover—that is, if Hamill figured out how DMs work.
Fans of both franchises obviously freaked out over the conversation. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to release in 2020, giving Gunn plenty of time to squeeze Hamill into the film.
