The Mandalorian Season 2's hair-raising finale left the door wide open for Luke Skywalker to once again return to the Star Wars franchise and while there hasn't been any confirmation on Lucasfilm's part, it's definitely more than likely that we'll see the Jedi Master come back to the MandoVerse especially given the fact that he's currently training Grogu aka Baby Yoda.

In Chapter 16, Star Wars legend Mark Hamill reprised his role as Luke with the help of his body double Max Lloyd Jones. Now, if Disney ever decides to greenlight a standalone project for Luke set in the events of The Mandalorian, something that has long been rumored, then it's safe to assume that Hamill has to step down from the part and let someone else take care of the job.

Obviously, Lloyd Jones is a prime candidate for the part but a lot of fans believe that Marvel actor Sebastian Stan is the perfect choice to play post-Return of the Jedi look simply because he shares a striking resemblance to a young Mark Hamill. Even the veteran actor gave him his seal of approval but the Winter Soldier admittedly doesn't want to "f*ck up" the role.

Still, that didn't stop the fandom from campaigning on Sebastian's behalf and the movement just got reignited thanks to an awesome fan art shared by geek page Fandom which depicts him as the famed Jedi Master. What do you think? Check out the artwork here:

As much as I'd like to see Stan bring life to the Luke Skywalker character, I think his current Marvel commitment will prevent him from ever joining the Star Wars franchise, at least for now. But considering both properties are living under the Disney umbrella, the chances of it actually happening still seems plausible. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, The Mandalorian Season 3 is currently in production.
