Let's be real: everyone wants to be in the new 'Star Wars' movies (well, except for Jason Statham), and that includes Marvel star Mark Ruffalo, who famously plays The Hulk/Bruce Banner in 'The Avengers.' While the cast for 'Star Wars: Episode 7' is already filled up, there's still hope for the actor to join 'Star Wars: Episode 8,' and he's already e-mailed his old buddy Rian Johnson to ask for a part ... any part.

When J.J. Abrams was brought on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and eventually to rework the script with Lawrence Kasdan, he was not guaranteed to work on the other installments in the new trilogy -- that job will be (partly) going to 'Looper' director Rian Johnson!

Director Rian Johnson has taken to Twitter with a number of behind-the-scenes photos and surprising details from the hour, including a few easter eggs you may not have noticed!

The success of Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is great news for fans of wholly original movies, because the Sony-distributed, time travel-based hit is not based on a novel or comic book or toy or anything else, and hopefully it is a harbinger of things to come. But that originality may spawn unoriginality as the success of the film may dictate a 'Looper 2.' Should there be a 'Looper 2?' Could there be a 'Looper 2?' We investigate.

Retro Rental: Get Ready for 'Looper' With 'Primer' ... or Vice Versa

And that's the problem with time travel, or at least part of the fun, which is that where you enter into the story may not be where the people in the story are coming into and out, like we discussed earlier. In 'Looper,' time travel works the same as a one-way bus ride to Muncie, if Muncie were 30 years before in the time-and-space continuum and the bus broke every rule of physics as we know it. In 'Primer,' the time machine works in a similar fashion -- never putting you forward, exactly, but rather putting you back so that you can move forward from that back and do everything over again, but different, and since only you have any knowledge of what really happened before, why not change it?
