Ever imagined what happens if the worlds of MCU and Star Wars collide? Well, cinematically it might be a little far-stretched, but off-camera an epic get-together went down as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn finally kept his word and met up with his neighbor, Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame, for a friendly coffee date. 

"Such a great day meeting my neighbor @JamesGunn!" the 66-year-old actor, known for playing Luke Skywalker in the space saga tweeted. 

Teasing the sum collective of fans of the two franchises further, Hamill added: "We have so much in common & talked about EVERYTHING: the weather, gardening tips, favorite recipes, growing up Catholic, our mutual love of dogs, bleu cheese, risqué limericks & the weather again. #FunWithGunn"

Not the one to be left out of this awesome and Internet-stirring conversation, even the Guardians director piped in, sharing a photo of their recent meet-up, the caption certainly oozing neighborly love.  

For the uninitiated, these pictures and the coffee date has become the topic of a raging online conversation because it's all linked to the much-talked-about third sequel to the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Earlier in February, a fan had made an off-the-wall suggestion, tweeting at Gunn to "find a role for" Hamill in Guardians 3. Surprisingly, not only did both the director and the actor take notice of the tweet, but also responded saying that they might as well talk about it "over a cup of coffee". In fact, Gunn's response was: 


Roughly four months since that conversation, the pair has now actually had a sit-down and that cup of coffee, leaving fans with multiple questions on whether or not Gunn has found a place for the Star Wars actor in a different galaxy.
