Strong is The Force with The Avengers?!

Hey, it's possible, says Stan Lee.

In an interview with The Big Issue, Stan Lee talks about the possibility of The Avengers meeting up with Star Wars.

First Stan Lee remarks on the possibility of all the Marvel characters appearing together (Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy) as some are owned by different studios:

You mean all together in one film? Yeah, probably. It’ll be the most expensive film ever produced! But anything that the public want to see you can be sure it will eventually be produced.

It's then remarked that Disney owns the rights to The Avengers and Star Wars, and that the public would love for a crossover to happen. Stan throws Spider-Man into the mix as well:

Well, I don’t know how many characters you can have in a movie but obviously the people who produce these things are looking to be as successful as possible. If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it. Can you imagine Spider-Man saying: 'May the force be with you'? It may come to that!

Nothing overwhelms people in the movie or television business. They are always looking for the next great idea.

Stan Lee notes they can take anyone they want and make them an Avenger, even Luke Skywalker.

We did it in the comics. I created the Avengers by taking many of our characters and making a team out of them. We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun too – all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!

How does an Avengers and Star Wars crossover movie on the big screen sound?
