Both in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man makes direct references to the galaxy far, far away. Peter Parker’s adolescent knowledge of pop culture makes this fit in line with the character, yet, by confirming that Star Wars exists, it confirms that the Star Wars prequels exist, in which Samuel L. Jackson starred as Mace Windu. In that regard, fans began to wonder what Peter Parker’s reaction would be to meeting Nick Fury, who would look nearly identical to Mace Windu.
The Star Wars and MCU paradoxes don’t end there, as Natalie Portman, Jon Favreau, Paul Bettany, Donald Glover, Forest Whitaker, Ben Mendelsohn, and many more have appeared in both franchises. While these many paradoxes are fun to point out, fans don’t get too bent out of shape about how these paradoxes impact the films themselves.
