It seems that both Kevin Feige and Patty Jenkins will not be moving forward with their movies in the Star Wars universe.
The legendary executive producer behind many of the Marvel movies that we love and adore and DC’s very own directorial Wonder Woman had claimed that they were getting new projects in the galaxy far, far away some time ago, but it seems that Disney put a quick stop on those plans for the classic universe.
Kevin Feige And Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars Movies are Shelved
Feige’s film had very little known about it, and it doesn’t really seem like a surprise that it was indefinitely shelved because it didn’t even have a title or a decent hook to capture audiences. It was also supposed to be written by screenwriter Michael Waldron, but it seems he is going to be far too busy working on Avengers: Secret Wars.
It was revealed in December 2020 that Jenkins would be directing Rogue Squadron, which would have taken the universe in a different direction by focusing on the “new generation of starfighter pilots.”
In some happier news, Thor: Love and Thunder actor/director Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film would be moving forward and is also expected to have a role in the film, as well, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Moreover, The Last Jedi and Glass Onion director Rian Johnson has been committed to making a brand new trilogy in the universe. Hopefully, he has learned from some of his mistakes in the last outing with The Last Jedi, which divided critics and audiences more than any other Star Wars film.
All in all, it’s very obvious to the saga’s fanbase that this series isn’t going anywhere. With all of these projects being green lit, it’s more than apparent to see that this saga has embedded itself in the pop-cultural zeitgeist for generations and filmmakers to come.
