It's no secret that Samuel L. Jackson is eager to revisit his Star Wars character Mace Windu. But is it possible that the Avengers: Endgame star has found an important supporter for his cause? Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has just pitched an awesome way to bring Mace back and it could be something that Lucasfilm should consider.
Coker took to Twitter to pitch his idea. The Almost Human writer suggested that Mace wasn't killed in the prequel trilogy and may have continued to play an important role after the events in Revenge of the Sith. Take a look at his tweets below.
"I find myself thinking about Mace Windu. He told Yoda from the very beginning that Anakin was dangerous, with too much power, anger, and little restraint. Losing his limbs and that fall shouldn't have killed him. What would he be doing? Would he be an original architect of the Rebel Alliance? Would anger and thoughts of revenge turn him towards the Sith? (He was Dooku's Padawan, right?) Or would he found his own version of Force training, a Jeet Kune Do that combined Sith and Jedi learning....embracing light and dark?" Coker wrote.
That sounds like something that Jackson would want to work on. A Jedi Academy with Mace as the tutor? Sign us up, please. Anyway, Coker continued by stating that the next Star Wars trilogy should explore why Force users choose to join the Jedi or Sith.
We're certainly loving this idea but it's important to point out that it hasn't been confirmed whether Mace actually survived in Revenge of the Sith. Nevertheless, we're crossing our fingers and hoping that Lucasfilm pays attention.
