Can Avenger the Winter Soldier become the Young Jedi Luke Skywalker? (Star Wars)

With the heat of the two series The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, Star Wars fans are looking forward to the return of young Jedi Luke Skywalker, played by a real actor, not using special effects like today. The Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan seems to be the most popular candidate name among fans.

In an interview with Esquire, when fans asked the 39-year-old Marvel actor to play the young Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian, he replied "never say never".

In terms of appearance, Sebastian Stan resembles a young Mark Hamill - who played Luke in the main Star Wars franchise.

Luscafilm – the company specializing in the production of the Star Wars movies and series was acquired by Disney in 2018 for more than 4 billion USD, that means it is currently under the same umbrella with Marvel, so the fact that an Avenger becomes a Jedi is probably not a complicated issue contractually.

However, Marvel often builds the image of Avengers characters in a permanent way and often nails an actor for the role for many years. Perhaps, only when The Winter Soldier is no longer a major character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, can Sebastian Stan enter the Star Wars universe.

Currently, fans are quite satisfied with the vivid image of young Luke in The Book of Boba Fett. This version is actually played by Graham Hamilton, with the visual effects used to recreate the face of the young Mark Hamill, and Mark himself voices the character.

It is known that Lucasfilm also hired Shamook - a YouTuber famous for deepfake videos to participate in The Book of Boba Fett project. And as we can see, the image of Luke in his youth has significantly improved recently.
