The Adam Project Director Shawn Levy Wants to Try His Hands at Directing an MCU or a Star Wars Movie

Shawn Levy, the man behind the ambitious Netflix movie, The Adam Project wants to direct an MCU or a Star Wars movie next. He has already proved his mettle, having been associated with many hits in the past including Free Guy. He even received a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards for Arrival.

I appreciate that. I certainly find both the Star Wars and Marvel universes compelling. It would have to be the right moment, the right story, but those would definitely be tantalizing opportunities,” he told Screen Rant.

Why would Shawn Levy be the perfect choice for an MCU movie? 

Initially starting out with comedy movies, Levy’s strength mostly lies in the comedy genre. It wasn’t until 2011 that he would make a sci-fi movie, Real Steel. MCU’s latest movies all combine humor with superhero action and he is the perfect guy for it! Even Star Wars have started incorporating light moments within the universe to make it more enjoyable.

He also confessed to wanting to “keep making movies that refuse to be only one thing, that is a hybrid of heart and laughter and spectacle because those are my favorite kinds of movies.” He feels such movies don’t get made much anymore and feels lucky that he has “been able to make two in a row that are also original. And I don’t ever take that for granted either.
