J.J. Abrams teases Edgar Wright coming to Star Wars


Well here’s a hell of a tease (not to mention what would be an awesome wedding). J.J. Abrams just tweeted this image of him and Edgar Wright holding hands hinting strongly that he’s getting married to the man… or that Wright will be directing a Star Wars film. The latter is more likely. It’s even more likely it will be one of the spin offs since the main ones are shored up with directors. 

Since Wright left Ant-Man under less than good circumstances it seems he’s landed on his feet just fine with another massive film universe. While I loved Wright directing a Marvel film, Wright directing a Star Wars movie might be even better. 

Then again it could all just be a cruel joke.
