Could Luke Skywalker be meeting up with the Guardians of the Galaxy?

It’s every sci-fi fans dream come true, and it’s all thanks to Twitter. Mark Hamill, who is not only the star of the original Star Wars Trilogy as Jedi Luke Skywalker, he’s also something of a Twitter Jedi, could be making an appearance in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 3; and all due to one fan who expressed his dream of Mark Hamill having a role in the upcoming film on Twitter and the response he neither expected or, we can reasonably guess, believe. But it’s real, it’s all real!

In a truly adorable twitter exchange between Hamill and Guardian writer/director James Gunn, fans may be getting the galactic crossover they never thought they would. The original tweet tags both Gunn and Hamill, who apparently live around the corner from each other in Malibu—it must be fate—and Gunn, as any good neighbor would, invited Hamill over for coffee to discuss the potential role. Hamill responded with gracious acceptance. We don’t know what to be more jealous of, the fact that Mark Hamill gets to have coffee with James Gunn or that James Gunn get to have coffee with Mark Hamill? It’s probably the latter.

The exchange doesn’t end there, as the two agree to exchange information and Hamill instructs Gunn to DM him, after of course they both follow each other. The appearance of Luke Skywalker himself with our favorite Guardians could just be the greatest interaction the universe has ever seen. Or perhaps Hamill will be playing some other character. If fans were not already highly anticipating Guardians of the Galaxy 3, the possibility of this alone could be cause for excitement. One things for certain, we’d love to be a fly on the wall whenever the two of them sit down for coffee.
