With Mark Hamill's commitments to Lucasfilm's Star Wars franchise seemingly over, the self-identified "unemployed actor" might be showing up in Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. On Sunday, a fan asked writer/director James Gunn to give Hamill a role in the next Guardians film, and both Hamill and Gunn seemed to take it seriously enough to begin making plans for a meeting.
I think @HamillHimself lives around the corner from me in Malibu so he can just come over and we can talk about it over a cup of coffee.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 26, 2018
I would be happy to do so, both as a good neighbor & an unemployed actor.— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) February 26, 2018
All the best, mh
Haha let’s do it.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 26, 2018
DM me for my contact info if you're serious.— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) February 26, 2018
(& a good neighbor)
No release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been set, however Gunn had previously said to look for it roughly three years after 2017's Vol. 2, referring to 2020.
