Mark Hamill won’t likely be appearing in any ‘Star Wars’ from Disney any time soon, but we will be seeing him onscreen sometime in the future for adaptation of the Mark Millar comic ‘The Secret Service’. According to Comic Book Movie, the former Luke Skywalker has finally agreed to appear in the film version of the comic after a few months of teasing.
In the comic, Hamill gets kidnapped and meets “a rather gruesome (and undeniably humorous) end”. Seeing as he was a good sport about Millar and ‘Watchmen’ artist Dave Gibbons using his likeness in their comic book, I’m glad that he’s willing to make an appearance in the film as well. Hopefully, this cameo appearance will be as funny, if not funnier, than his cameo in Kevin Smith’s ‘Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back’.
Here’s the tweet from Millar announcing the news:
The writer will be working with past collaborator Matthew Vaughn, the director of ‘Kick-ass’, on ‘The Secret Service’. Recently, Vaughn opted out of directing ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ in favor of taking on this Millarworld adaptation. No date has been set for release, but seeing as the director was supposed to move onto this after the ‘X-Men: First Class’ sequel, we’re likely to get some updates on ‘The Secret Service’ sometime soon.
