One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s shortest-lived mysteries captured the creativeness of the web over the weekend, with followers adamant they’d noticed a blink and also you’ll miss it cameo in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special from none apart from Mark Hamill.
While it was solely a one-second shot, the hypothesis intensified when neither the Star Wars legend or writer and director James Gunn publicly confirmed or denied it was certainly the longtime Luke Skywalker, with many taking that as a affirmation given the pair’s penchant for addressing social media scuttlebutt head-on to attract definitive traces below issues of all sizes and styles.
Unfortunately, it was confirmed that Hamill hasn’t yet debuted in the MCU, regardless of earlier conversations with Gunn a few potential position within the Guardians of the Galaxy saga. As disappointing because it ended up proving to be, there was a minimum of one one that remained incredulous on the truth the Batman: The Animated Series veteran hadn’t swung by the Marvel Studios Special Presentation.
We can now focus our attentions on whether or not or not Hamill will pop up in Vol. 3, then, with the trail of Twitter breadcrumbs already stretching back a long way. If Gunn can rope within the likes of Kurt Russell, David Hasselhoff, and Kevin Bacon to take pleasure in some cosmic shenanigans alongside Star-Lord and the workforce, then why not one other legend who skilled the largest successes of their profession within the Seventies and 80s?
It is likely to be wishful pondering, but it surely’s not as if the MCU doesn’t take pleasure in bountiful fan service.
