Obviously.

But I'm guessing concealing his identity is his main objective. Oh, and probably to be more like Vader. If the rumors are true, he is a Sith worshipper/wannabe.

Conceal his identity, I'm guessing.

Do you think Luke has spent the last 30 years trying to find the good in everyone? Like if he ran into this upstart dark sider he'd try to turn him back instead of just kill him?

I'm thinking Luke spent the better part of the 30 years in exile, battling his own inner demons rather than rebuilding the Jedi Order. Maybe he put someone else in charge?

Yeah forgive me because I have only watched the movies, but I always figured that Luke was going to have to have some serious internal issues with himself about the hatred he submitted to in order to defeat Vader.

Who was Luke going to put in charge? He was told by Yoda to pass on the Jedi way. You think he goes "hey, Leia. You can use the force, so go build a new Jedi Order?"

Well you understand my meaning.

And I'm not saying that he didn't rebuild it, but I think it would definitely be an issue in his life while he did it.

To intimidate his enemies.

Sure he did. He just decided to spare his life.

Technically, once Vader turned on the emperor he reverted back into Anakin and therefore Luke did defeat Vader in all meanings of the word.

I just wish shooting lightning out of your hands wasn't purely a dark side thing.

Vader clearly called time out right after Luke de-handed him.

Interesting...

I wouldn't mind seeing Whedon on one of the anthology movies, as seems to potentially be the case, but I absolutely do not want him on Episode IX. I love his writing, and his action is pretty good, but man, his look/cinematography is so incredibly vanilla. Abrams and Johnson know how to shoot/move a camera, but Whedon's just not quite on their level in that regard.

That said, if Whedon were to take over this theoretical live action Star Wars TV show that keeps being hinted at, I can't think of a better fit. How cool would that be?

That's basically what Firefly was, after all. I'm not sure I'd give him the keys to a long term project at this point, though. He seems to grow sour over time, these days.

I could see giving him an anthology film about Han Solo or some new band of misfit rogues.

Whedon has been on the record as saying if he ever did Star Wars, he only wants to go forward / do something new. So I can't see him touching Boba Fett or Han.

Which is fine. Create a new ship with personality and have a story about smugglers trying for a big score against whoever...

I'm just glad Star Wars is in the hands of Disney. What they've done with Marvel is incredible, and I know they'll put the right people in there that will steer this universe in the right direction.

Personally, I think he would fit better doing a live action TV show as opposed to an anthology film. I don't want him on Episode IX either, but I'm not so sure that I really want him on an anthology film either. I mean if the other anthology films are backfilling events in the OT, I can't really see him wanting to do that. I mentioned it in the AoU or AoS thread about his remarks towards Coulson and AoS, but I don't get the feeling he likes to be told that these are the rules, and here are your playground confines.

Sticking him in an anthology film, I think, would stick him in the same position as if he was still working with Marvel. Letting him helm a TV show would allow him to have a larger playground to tell a story IMO.

I guess the question is, will he commit to a long term project or will he be responsible like he was for AoS of creating the show then passing the torch to someone else? I tend to think it would be the latter.

Indeed.

I would totally be fine with the latter scenario. Have him oversee a season / set up the world/characters, then hand it off.
