Social media is a beautiful thing. We’ve seen many an idea be created on platforms like Twitter, and have seen filmmakers and actors use it to connect with fans in a way that’s never been possible before. Two talents who have taken full advantage of this in the past are director James Gunn and actor Mark Hamill, with the former using Facebook extensively for Q&A sessions with his fans.

It was inevitable that the pair would cross paths on social media, and months ago, Hamill expressed his interest in joining the latest Guardians of the Galaxy film, and Gunn seemed to share his interest in the idea. Since then, fans have been eager to see if this interaction actually led to anything. Gunn recently took to social media to share their coffee chat.

“Finally stopped by my neighbor @hamillhimself’s for that cup of coffee we talked about on twitter months ago. And some bbq. And cornbread. And cobbler. And OKAY IT’S TRUE I ATE THE HAMILL’S OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME BACK OFF. Honestly, though he’s an amazing guy and I am really grateful to him and the whole Hamill clan for a great Sunday.”

Of course, our big question coming off of this is if the pair discussed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. As of this writing, Gunn is likely hard at work writing up that screenplay, so is it possible that he came into their meeting with an idea of who Hamill could portray? We certainly hope so!

As far as who Hamill could play, the sky is the limit. Gunn has never been one to go with the obvious choices, and the Guardians mythology is so weird relatively obscure that I couldn’t even begin to guess who would be fit for the former Skywalker. But what do you think? Who can you see Hamill playing in the MCU? Let us know down below!
