Latest Samuel L. Jackson News

Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu has left an incredible mark on Star Wars and deserves a better end to his story. But should he return to do so? Reddit user RogerRoger63358 on the Star Wars subreddit seemingly felt like it was a day worth ruining and posted a screenshot from Revenge of the Sith showing a rather unfortunate moment during Mace's final moments. As Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) fires his dark side electricity at Mace, the bolts can be seen hitting the Jedi directly in the mouth. Anyone who's ever felt a shock from a frayed wire or particularly spicy shag carpet knows full well how unappealing the sensation is. So, the idea of it being focused directly on the chompers likely caused a legion of fans to clench up. The original poster commented on the reality of the situation, adding that "the poor man died with no dignity." This prompted many other users to add rebuttals in the comments, pointing out how Mace managed to hold his own until Anakin showed up and betrayed him in favor of Palpatine's manipulation and conspiracies . Others were more tongue-in-cheek with their responses, bringing up the classic "Mace Windu died? Did YOU see the body?" arguments, albeit with less seriousness than such quotes are usually uttered. But one thing was widely agreed: that must have hurt. "Weird post. Windu died doing his duty to the best of his ability. That is plenty dignity." The debate on whether or not Mace died in that scene rages to this day, and it's not difficult to see why. In a franchise where characters frequently survive long falls (especially Force users), many fans can't accept that a genuine master of the craft like him would die after being tossed out the window by Palpatine. However, as time passes, it seems less and less likely that Mace Windu could return to Star Wars for several reasons, not the least of which is Jackson's age and willingness to reprise his role at this point. Still, the window is always open, pun intended. Given how Palpatine appeared to age in seconds when Mace turned his own lightning back on him, it stands to reason that the same could have happened to Mace himself when he ultimately got hit right in the pie hole. The character's possible return could be as a quiet old man, in line with what the lightning may have done to him. The only question is this: are there any good stories left to tell for him? Maybe now is an excellent time to confirm Mace as a Gray Jedi . Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith is available on Disney Plus.
