If you know anything about Kevin Smith, you know he is obsessed with comic books and the Star Wars franchise. He is also a terrific director so it would make sense for Disney to put Smith at the helm of a Marvel movie and/or a Star Wars film. There is a rumor that the match made in nerd heaven just might happen.

A report from Fandom Wire says that the Clerks director “met with Disney for a potential project” and “the nature of this project is secret.” Disney owns the rights to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars. Since Smith is so well-versed in both entertainment properties, he could easily slide in as a director for an upcoming movie from either franchise.
