We’re just a few short days away from the release of the highly anticipated Captain Marvel film, with the cast and entire Marvel crew hard at work promoting the next phase of the MCU.
Captain Marvel star Brie Larson sat down in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the film, and revealed a bit of information that sent our intergalactic worlds colliding.
During the interview, Larson revealed that fellow Marvel star and Star Wars actor Samuel L. Jackson brought his Mace Windu lightsaber onto the Marvel set on the infamous date of May 4.
“I got to hold his lightsaber!” Larson exclaims during the interview. “He brought it to me on set on May the 4th, and I cried. It was so cool. I wanna be a Jedi.”
Jackson also revealed how the Star Wars universe compared to the MCU.
“With becoming that kind of character in that kind of movie. It just changes the game in another kind of way. ’Cause I had all this interesting kind of popularity or whatever, but when I got into the Star Wars universe, it exponentially changed. You become godlike in a crazy kinda way. I [became more famous] because I was a Jedi, so no matter where I went, I got accosted by the Jedi council of wherever.”
To which Larson replied, “It’s so cool. I wish I was a Jedi.”
It wasn’t long afterwards that Star Wars caught wind of the interview, responding to Larson’s wish to be a jedi.
