When it comes to Star Wars there is not a headline out there that surprises me anymore. But there is one today that pop up that I found really interesting. It is common to see rumors about Marvel actors heading over to the Star Wars world, especially with its ties with Jon Favreau. But this week it is being reported that Robert Downey Jr. will be heading to the galaxy far far away to join forces with Jon Favreau.

Yes, you read that right. It looks as if we could possibly see the Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. in an upcoming Star Wars movie. In an exclusive report from Giant Freaking Robot, it seems that Downey is currently in talks to team up with Favreau in one of his Star Wars projects.

Like I have said a million times please take what you read here with a grain of salt. None of this has been confirmed by Disney or Robert Downey Jr. So until then we will leave this as one of our rumor watches. Now, it would make sense if it does happen since Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. have worked together many times before for Marvel.

This is still a developing story (rumor) so make so to keep an eye out over at That Hashtag Show for more updates as they break.
