    We've known for a while that the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, is going to be producing a Star Wars movie, that was not mentioned at all during last month's Disney's Investor Day. Last week, it was reported that Loki screenwriter and showrunner Michael Waldron will be writing the script for that movie.



    Feige has a huge gamble coming out this week, as Marvel Studios is premiering its first-ever live-action TV series, WandaVision, on Disney Plus. To promote the show, Feige has been giving interviews all week long, and naturally, the topic of Star Wars has come up here and there.



    Variety addressed the Michael Waldron report and asked him about the time he's thinking to make the movie, whether it's early, mid, or late 2020s. This is a rather pertinent question, because, as of today, there are three Star Wars films slated for theatrical release this decade, in December of 2023, 2025, and 2027. We know that Patty Jenkins is making the 2023 one, and Taika Waititi is currently writing another movie, which we'd guess it's going to come out in 2025 (that's a long wait, I know). That leaves the 2027 spot for Feige's movie, but are there more dates that Lucasfilm is just working with internally? Here's what Feige said:



    It seems like a non-answer, it's true, but to me, the main takeaway is that apparently, they are not working with any specific dates at this point. Instead, if that report is true, they are simply focusing on putting the movie together. And I think it's a very nice touch to add that at least he's aware of what Lucasfilm is putting out. Whether or not he'll be eagerly watching it, or he'll just catch up with it later, I love that he acknowledges those projects at the very minimum.



    It should also be pointed out that in the next few years, Kevin Feige will be producing over 10 Marvel movies and 11 (including WandaVision, which is coming out now) Disney Plus shows. I don't know if he even sleeps, but even if he doesn't, I honestly do not know where you fit a Star Wars movie in there.

    In another interview, this time with Collider, he was asked point-blank if he is involved in any capacity in any other Star Wars project besides the movie he is producing. He simply answered:



    This should put to rest any type of rumor or speculation that he might be secretly helping out Filoni and Favreau in The Mandalorian, or that he's effectively taken over Kathleen Kennedy's job, but only behind closed doors. While some fans will still insist that he could be lying, Steve Weintraub, who conducted the interview, pointed out in the article that in his experience, Kevin Feige does not lie. When he doesn't want to answer a question, he simply doesn't, or he gives a non-answer (kind of like the one he gave to Variety, although that one I think it's because that project is still in the very early stages of development).

    Yeah yeah so Kevin Feige is getting into the SW movie business (maybe)

    I am hearing rumors that a guy named @RoyleRancor is working on selecting a new SW movie that is going to be freaking outstanding.....once the draft process is done of course....LOL

    As much as I was hoping for something more definitive here, I understand that it is still quite a ways away. And, as the article itself notes, Kevin Feige is one busy dude. But I am definitely curious to see who ends up directing it, and even more curious to see what era it takes place in.

    We’ve been a bit overwhelmed with Star Wars announcements lately, I feel this Feige project should deservedly be placed on the backburner until we’re able to digest everything else. At least we know it’s happening eventually.
