Is Star Wars in Marvel Cinematic Universe worth what? And how big is it? Below are some examples that will help you get an idea.
Star WarsIt is considered one of the greatest film franchises. Because of its impact on pop culture, the influence science fiction has had on culture for the past 44 years is immense. Marvel Cinematic Universe is as popular as Star Wars. It’s no surprise that it draws inspiration from Star Wars movies.
From Yellowjacket’s lasers using the same sound effect as the AT-ATs to nearly every MCU Phase Two film including a character’s arm being cut off, the influence of Star WarsIt is obvious. Star Wars was referenced several times. For instance, Steve Rogers has the film on his catch-up list in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and “Nick Fury” in Spider-Man: Far From Home (who is even played by Star Wars alumnus, Samuel L. Jackson) tells Peter Parker not to confuse a Shakespeare quote with Star Wars.
However, probably the most curious Star Wars reference in the MCU occurs in Captain America: Civil War. Spider-Man creates a strategy to defeat Ant-Man at the airport battle sequence. He ties his legs with a net and tries to tie him down. Quotes from the character “that really old movie, Empire Strikes Back”It was his inspiration. It’s a hilarious moment, which highlights Spider-Man and other Avengers’ age differences. The wording however is somewhat strange.
Empire Strikes Back has an important Star Wars presence, even though it is an old movie. Pop Culture Today. Captain America: Civil It was warAvailable in 2016 There were seven movies in the series.Plus, a couple animated programs. Because of this, it’s weird that Spider-Man treats the film as if it were a niche topic. It seems that Star Wars is something most people know even at fifteen.
There could also be a deeper explanation. The MCU does not appear to reference Star Wars in any way. Star Wars is the source of all Star Wars reference.It means they are not real.
Although this may be an accidental coincidence, the original trilogy is still widely considered to be the best. This iconic set of films, the fact that there hasn’t been even one allusion to the franchise’s more recent outings comes across as a deliberate move on the part of the writers. If this is the case, then the original Star Wars trilogy might be the only one that exists in the MCU. This could mean that the franchise did not have the same resurgence in popularity that it did in the real world.
That’s not to say that Star Wars isn’t culturally relevant in the MCU. On the contrary, many of the references, such as Ned’s Lego Death Star in Spider-Man: Homecoming, imply that the MCU certainly has a devoted Star Wars fanbase. Its presence is however contextualized in pop culture might be very different, as George Lucas’s prequel trilogy did, for better or for worse, revitalize the franchise, as did Disney’s sequel trilogy. This could, at the very least, explain why Spider-Man spoke of Empire Strikes Back as if there was a chance someone might not be familiar with the franchise.
Of course, the line could have been little more than a reminder of how young Peter was. After all, he also referred to the film Aliens in the same fashion only a few films later. But even with that in mind, it is a bizarre choice to reference a film from a franchise as relevant as Star Wars as if it was obscure. Therefore, the MCU can be described as a world that is not. modern Star Wars moviesThis could be an plausible hypothesis.
