    Wait, Episode 7 already has editors? Well, according to this press release from Disney / Marvel for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" announcing that production on that began today, Ep. 7 DOES have editors.

    Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (“Elysium,” “District 9”), production designer Peter Wenham (“21 Jump Street,” “Fast Five”), editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. (“Star Wars: Episode 7,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“The Hunger Games,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”).

    They may just be speculating because Mary Jo Markey has regularly worked with J.J. Abrams (I believe she has edited all of his films but I could be wrong.) I would think it's a high probablity that she'll be involved but I don't know if it has been confirmed yet.

    This is an official press release from Disney / Marvel, so I think they wouldn't have to speculate what someone may or may not be doing for Disney / Lucasfilm.

    No big deal. But that is fairly exciting news to know that they have already progressed to this staffing level for the film.

    It's good to see they haven't changed their mind about making the movie. I was beginning to wonder! :)

    I just realized something. We won't be seeing the Disney logo on the film. Probably it will have the Touchstone logo, as that is the non-G-rated division of Disney.

    Yep. Just like with Tron.

    Actually, I'm betting you anything we won't see that either. We never get one with Marvel - so I guess it depends on the type of movie they're about to put it in front of. I'm betting it will be Bad Robot and then LucasFilm.

    But isn't the lack of one on the Marvel movies more to do with some existing distribution deal with Paramount? I'd expect Disney to make a SW-specific version of the castle logo, like the Tron example above. I think Pirates of the Caribbean has its own version of the Disney logo too, and that's not rated G either. There are other examples too.

    I'd prefer not to see the Bad Robot thing, but maybe it has to come with JJ Abrams. But as long as "LucasFilm" is followed directly by "A long time ago in a galaxy far far away....", I'll be happy.

    That makes sense, SW-specific Disney Logo, followed by Bad Robot, then Lucasfilm logo, then "A long time ago ..."

    Yup. And I also hope that they continue the tradition from the previous SW films of having no opening credits onscreen (no director, producer, lead actors, etc.).

    You'd be hard pressed to find a movie that does that these days.

    You mean hard pressed to find a movie that excludes that info at the beginning like SW always has, or that all movies now exclude that info anyway? I feel like I still see examples of both. If I recall correctly, the Nolan Batman films are the most extreme, not even showing the name of the movie until the end...

    Prometheus, maybe? Not sure if that had opening credits beyond the title.

    Maybe, I haven't seen Prometheus yet. But I still think that there are examples of both types of movies being released these days... with and without opening credits.

    Right, so both ways do happen. And we're left wondering what @KED12345 meant. :p

    Good to see the quality of fan films have improved since I last saw them.



    I meant that it's hard to find many movies that have the "Title>Actors>Director" deal in the beginning of the movie. Most movies just have the title in the beginning and that's it.
