Not to long ago, someone, somewhere discovered that Marvel Cinematic Universe actor Sebastian Stan bares an eerie resemblance to a young Mark Hamill. This of course sparked rumors and rampant speculation that the Winter Soldier actor could or would someday portray a young Luke Skywalker on the big-screen. Now it seems, fans could very well be getting their wish according to Mark Hamill himself.
With just a couple of weeks to go until the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, one of the most highly anticipated films of all-time, star Mark Hamill is currently on his press tour for the film. In his most recent interview on Good Morning America, the actor seems to confirm or at the very least, allude to a young Luke Skywalker film, somewhere down the line.
In the funny video interview from Good Morning America, Hamill is discussing actor Sebastian Stan and their uncanny resemblance, when he casually and very likely, accidentally says that he would love for Stan to play a young version of Luke when "they make those movies." While it doesn't seem like much, the fact that Hamill casually says this, would seem to imply that Disney and Lucasfilm are planning to make at least one young Luke film, maybe even more.
