LOKI and DOCTOR STRANGE 2 Writer Michael Waldron Talks About Working on Kevin Feige’s STAR WARS Project.
Michael Waldron, the writer of Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is working on another film project with Kevin Feige. Waldron is currently working with Feige on the Star Wars project that he’s developing for Lucasfilm.
In a recent interview with GQ, Waldron talked about his approach to the new Star Wars movie, saying:
“I think the success of the MCU is, for all the amazing science-fiction and concepts and all that stuff; ultimately the success is built upon the characters, their humanity, their very relatable conflicts, friendships, and the family that is the MCU. And I think Star Wars, at its best, is a story about family. Han, Luke, and Leia were a family; you love seeing them together, and you hated it when they were split apart. It’s great characters. That’s nothing new. I am not going to blow anybody’s mind with that headline—but that’s my biggest takeaway.
“It’s very early days on [Star Wars]. That’s probably the thing I can say least about, unfortunately. The thing Kevin Feige shares in common with Dan Harmon and with Sam Raimi is an absolute collaborative spirit and a remarkable lack of ego given what he’s accomplished. Kevin is a great listener. He wants to hear your ideas, take in how you might do something, and then help you make it better. Beyond all that, he’s just a cool guy.”
We don’t currently have information on what Feige and Waldron’s project is going to consist of, but Feige and Waldron have a ridiculously great resume, so I don’t really think we have much to worry about.
It was also previously reported that “Feige has told a major actor that there’s a specific role he would like that person to play if and when he makes the movie.” We know nothing about who that actor is or the character that he wants that actor to play.
