A Marvel and Star Wars Crossover Was Pitched For Marvel’s WHAT IF…? Series — GeekTyrant

There’s so much potential to tell all kinds of wild and crazy stories in Marvel’s What If…? animated series. The writers for the show are pitching all kinds of ideas for the series and one of those pitches included a Marvel and Star Wars mashup!

Writer and story editor Matthew Chauncey, who wrote episodes such as What If… T’Challa Became Star-Lord?, What If… Zombies?, and the Season 2 finale What If… Strange Supreme Intervened?, is the one who pitched an idea that director and executive producer Bryan Andrews says is “absolutely doable.” Kevin Feige nixed the idea, though. During an interview with Moovy TV, Andrews said:

“I think Kevin [Feige] really doesn’t want to cross certain streams. But we did pitch… We actually had a Star Wars/Marvel crossover.”

“So I think it’s absolutely doable. I just don’t know if [Feige] wants to cross those streams, but it’s really funny. Once you get to the realization of why, you go:’Oh, that… oh, right!’ It totally makes sense. It won’t rain on anyone’s parade. But it was just a love letter to old-school Star Wars. And it was great. And I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to do it. But we have thought about that stuff.”

There’s no reason they couldn’t do a crossover with Marvel and Star Wars in the What If…? series. It’s the perfect opportunity to make it happen because you can do anything with that show and it won’t really affect what is going on in the films and TV shows. They should do it!

Andrews goes on to talk about trying to put Easter eggs in the series including cameos by Xenomorphs and Yautja hiding in the Collector’s museum. But Disney cut them out. He said:

“I have tried to put easter eggs. All these different things that Disney actually owns, but they’re really sharp about. They’re like, ‘No, no, no, no, no.’ They spot that sh-t. We did sneak in a TIE Fighter… I don’t think anyone will ever be able to see it, but in the shot when Starlord T’Challa runs in and there’s spaceships around… In one of the shots, when it goes by, it’s maybe motion-blurred, but there is a TIE Fighter in there. I don’t know if you’ll ever see it, but technically it’s been painted.. it’s in there. So that’s one we were able to get in.”
