Why We Think Kylo Ren Will Be Redeemed in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Hoarder of Fantasy Books and Stephen King Wannabecan be described as a heavy-metal pop culture geek, like a weird combination of Supernatural's Sam and Dean Winchester. She enjoys reading horror and fantasy novels when she isn't writing about the different fandoms around the world. Nobelle is currently working on a scary book but is too scared to let you read it just yet
Let's face it: Not everyone is a fan of Kylo Ren. Interestingly, even Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actor John Boyega has a certain dislike for the character and he made it clear in a series of new photos.
Boyega shared the pictures on his official Instagram account along with the caption, "I hate Kylo Ren..... with all of my heart." Make sure to swipe through the post to see all of the images.

The first photo shows Boyega chatting on his phone while posing with a statue of Kylo while the second one features the Attack the Block star lounging in a blanket with Kylo's image. The third and most adorable picture shows the actor taking a selfie with a child who has cosplayed as Adam Driver's character.
Okay, we get it, John. You're Kylo's biggest fan after all. We really can't blame him, though, because we'd like to take a selfie with the tiny Kylo as well.
Boyega is set to return as Finn in The Rise of Skywalker and the character is expected to get a heroic arc now that the Skywalker Saga is coming to an end. Finn's fate is still unclear for now but there is a huge possibility that the former Stormtrooper will finally prove that he was destined to join the Resistance and will play a huge role in their victory.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will hit theaters on December 20.

If you have watched the first two episodes of The Mandalorian, there's a huge chance you have fallen in love with what is probably the most adorable character introduced in the Star Wars universe (we know Twitter is obsessed). But don't let that innocent face fool you. There's a possibility that the mysterious target is actually a clone created in Kamino.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!
In the first episode of The Mandalorian, it was revealed that the titular bounty hunter has been sent to Arvala-7 to procure an asset that turns out to be a 50-year-old child that belongs to the same species as Yoda. This makes the mission even more interesting considering that the client who sent him has Imperial connections and is working with a Kaminoan colleague.
Wait, we missed that part, too. However, a Twitter user has helpfully pointed out that Dr. Pershing wears the Kamino patch on his sleeve. Check it out below.

So what does this all mean? There are speculations that Baby Not-Yoda is actually a clone. Additionally, Dr. Pershing seems insistent on bringing the child back alive, suggesting that it isn't as disposable as the Client implies. With that in mind, there is a possibility that we're looking at a clone of the Jedi Master Yoda.
It's an interesting theory but one that seems feasible because you don't introduce a Kaminoan character without a reason, right? Those guys were responsible for creating the Clone Army in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and the army might not be their only big project. However, it's important to point out that this is a mere theory for now and should be taken with a grain of salt.
The next episode of The Mandalorian will premiere on Disney+ on November 22.

We're only a few months away from the premiere of Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and fans are probably wondering if the film is going to be as crazy as the trailer implies. Well, Margot Robbie has just revealed that the entire movie will be told from her character's point of view so we're pretty sure it's going to be nuts.
Robbie recently spoke to Variety about her upcoming DC Extended Universe film and the Bombshell actress confirmed that fans will get to know what it's like to be in Harley's head in Birds of Prey.
“The story in Birds of Prey is told from her point of view, so you have an insight into Harley’s world in a way that you didn’t in the first Suicide Squad film, nor that you’ll have in the next Suicide Squad film,” Robbie revealed.
This is welcome news for Harley fans who felt that the character didn't get enough exposure in the first Suicide Squad movie. Robbie went on to give a colorful description of the new Warner Bros. film.
“It’s a little bonkers,” she said. “It reflects her personality. It’s heightened. It’s poppy, it’s fun, it’s violent, it’s crazy. It’s absurd. It’s kooky. It’s hilarious. It’s a little heartbreaking.”
We're a bit wary of the "heartbreaking" part, which could have something to do with Harley's emotional breakup with Joker. Nevertheless, we're already looking forward to the "kooky" and "bonkers" part of the film.
Birds of Prey will hit theaters on February 7, 2020.

One of the best things about Marvel's Infinity Saga box set is the collection of deleted scenes from every Marvel Cinematic Universe film that has been released so far. Not surprisingly, there's an interesting scene from Ant-Man and the Wasp that confirms Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne were partially responsible for creating Ghost.
In the movie, Ava Starr revealed that her father Elihas Starr was fired by Hank but had continued working on an experiment. Unfortunately, it caused an explosion that killed both of Ava's parents and gave her phasing abilities. However, the deleted scene from the Ant-Man sequel tells a completely different story (via Comicbook.com).
The deleted scene features both Hank and Janet working with Elihas on the experiment that ended up changing Ava's life. This means that they both had a hand on creating Ghost in the first place. However, this part of Ava's story was changed in the Ant-Man and the Wasp theatrical cut.
It's unclear why Ava's origin story had to be changed but at least we can rest assured that the character is expected to return in the third Ant-Man movie. There have been speculations that Ghost will manage to control her powers and eventually help Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne in Ant-Man 3.
The Infinity Saga box set also features deleted scenes from Thor: Ragnarok that gives Odin a different death as well as a rare photo of Captain Marvel joining the heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The box set is currently available and retails for $549.99.

The Mandalorian is officially out and the cast and crew of the new series are undoubtedly happy that it's already getting rave reviews. Although we have yet to see the episode that was directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, the Jurassic World actress has already posted a grateful message for the people she had worked with on the Star Wars show.
Howard shared some photos of the Mandalorian crew on her official Instagram account along with a heartfelt message for Star Wars creator George Lucas, fellow director Dave Filoni and many others. Check it out below.
View this post on Instagram A post shared by Bryce Dallas Howard (@brycedhoward) on Nov 14, 2019 at 9:53pm PST
"It’s been a surreal and exhilarating experience getting to direct in the Star Wars universe! Thank you always and forever to George for starting it all, @dave.filoni for being our oracle, everyone at @lucasfilm, all the fans who came out last night to celebrate this next chapter, and a deep thank you to the entire Star Wars family for making this possible!" Howard wrote.
Howard concluded the message with a special shoutout to The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau.
"Last, but very much so not least, thank you @jonfavreau for giving me a shot, for mentoring me, for inspiring and empowering every soul on set, and for dreaming big for all of us..." she wrote before reminding her followers that the series is currently streaming on Disney+.
The first two episodes of The Mandalorian have already been well-received and fans are already looking forward to how the titular bounty hunter's story will continue in the series. Needless to say, we can't wait to see Howard's episode soon.
The next episode of The Mandalorian is directed by Deborah Chow and will air on Disney+ on November 22. Howard's episode Chapter Four will premiere on November 29.

It's no secret that superhero movies require a lot of special effects, massive sets, and a huge budget. Aquaman star Willem Dafoe understands this but has also expressed concern about how comic book films can be "too noisy" in the long run.
Dafoe recently spoke to 92Y about his new movie The Lighthouse but he also discussed his previous work on comic book films. Interestingly, the Spider-Man star commented on how overwhelming the production can be in superhero movies.
“You have fun with some of the things that you get to do, because there’s lots of hardware and there’s lots of crazy crane shots and those kind of things,” Dafoe said. “That’s fun. But stuff is overshot. They spend a lot of money on big set pieces, because that’s what delivers the action, and they’re too noisy.”
Sure, he might not be a big fan of overpriced productions but Dafoe is also careful not to offend the folks at Marvel and DC. This is why he immediately backtracked on the comment.
“But let’s not get into this”, he said with a laugh. “I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me. But, no, seriously, folks. Look, those aren’t the movies I run to.”
He's right about that. Although we remember Dafoe for playing Green Goblin in Spider-Man or Vulko in Aquaman, those are hardly his most memorable roles in his long career. Personally, I loved him in The Boondock Saints ("There was a firefight!") and I'm sure you have your own favorite Dafoe role as well.
Dafoe's latest film The Lighthouse was released on October 18.

Can you imagine what it would have been like if action director John Woo directed a Marvel Cinematic Universe film? Unfortunately, the idea would have to be left in your imagination. Woo has admitted that the late Stan Lee reached out to him asking if he would helm a Marvel movie but was turned down. In addition to that, Woo seems to agree with Martin Scorsese about the effects of MCU flicks on cinema.
Woo recently spoke to Deadline where he confessed that he was offered the chance to direct a Marvel film. However, he turned down Lee's offer for a strange reason.
“I don’t have that gift,” Woo said. “I’m not a sci-fi guy — I don’t think I could make a good one. There’s so much imagination… I don’t think I can reach that level.”
Interestingly, Woo also pointed out that he somehow understands why Scorsese had said Marvel movies are "not cinema".
“I’m concerned about when these movies get more and more popular, I’m afraid it will make young audiences get lost when it comes to knowledge about film,” Woo said. He then added that MCU flicks could now be considered the standard of modern filmmaking and younger people would lose “the desire to study or watch what Mr. Scorsese refers to as 'real cinema.'”
It's an interesting perspective since it comes from a prominent filmmaker. On the other hand, it's best to remember that cinema is always evolving. Still, the idea of Woo directing a Marvel film would have been intriguing.
Woo is currently working on a remake of his 1989 movie The Killer.

It's been a while since we're heard from the cast of Star Wars Rebels but that doesn't mean that Freddie Prinze Jr. and Taylor Gray haven't been busy this whole time. The voice actors from the beloved animated series have reunited for the second part of the Star Wars Table Top RPG series GEGG WARS.
The new teaser for the GEGG WARS sequel Galaxy of Crime has just been dropped and it confirms that Prinze and Gray will be back in the game. Check it out below.
Prinze and Gray will be joined by Prinze's GEGGHEAD co-founder Clare Grant, Fungeons & Flagons' Maude Garrett and Fanboys director Kyle Newman. Jeremy Melloul will serve as Game Master in the sequel while the third GEGGHEAD co-founder Jon Lee Brody will direct.
Brody recently spoke to Comicbook.com about Galaxy of Crime and what fans can expect from the GEGG WARS sequel.
“Much like how Star Wars created a universe with infinite stories, GEGGHEAD is looking to do the same with GEGG WARS, and Galaxy of Crime is one of those stories. The promo video was shot on location at the Scum and Villainy Cantina in Los Angeles. The tone I was going for was that our Game Master, Jeremy, is like Obi-Wan Kenobi arriving at the Cantina looking for passage to the Alderaan system. Only in this case, it’s Jeremy looking for players for his RPG campaign,” Brody said.
Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus working together again? This sounds like an awesome show that Star Wars Rebels fans can totally enjoy.
Galaxy of Crime will be available on YouTube on December 4.

Margot Robbie is currently working on The Suicide Squad and it looks like the Birds of Prey star is already loving what James Gunn is doing with the reboot/sequel. Robbie teased on the humor that the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director is adding to her new DC Extended Universe flick.
Robbie recently spoke to Variety, who told her that her co-star Joel Kinnaman teased on how hilarious their new film is going to be. Not surprisingly, the Bombshell actress agreed and immediately praised Gunn for his writing.
“He’s right… You’re going to be laughing a lot,” Robbie said. “It’s going to be good is all I can say for now. It’s going to be very, very good.”
We already know that Gunn is fully capable of injecting humor in scenes that would otherwise end up being bland if handled by a different director. If Robbie and Kinnaman are impressed with what he's doing with The Suicide Squad, there is little doubt that the film is going to be hilarious.
The Suicide Squad will also bring back Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. New cast members include David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Idris Elba, John Cena, Storm Reid ,Steve Agee, Flula Borg, Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, Peter Capaldi, Pete Davidson, Alice Braga, Sean Gunn, Taika Waititi, Joaquín Cosío, Mayling Ng, Juan Diego Botto, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz, and Jennifer Holland.
The Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 6, 2021. Robbie will return as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey, which will premiere on February 7, 2020.

In case you missed it, the Disney+ cut of A New Hope had changed Greedo's scene yet again. In the new version of the Star Wars film, the bounty hunter says, "Maclunkey" before shooting at Han Solo, who then shoots him dead. It's an unusual line that has led to Bib Fortuna making fun of Greedo.
Paul Blake is the actor who played Greedo in A New Hope. Blake has previously confirmed that he has no idea what "maclunkey" means and wasn't even sure why the line was added in the Disney+ cut of the movie. Interestingly, Blake also told Empire (via CBR) that Mike Carter, who played Bib Fortuna in the original trilogy, immediately trolled him about the line with a hilarious text.
"Mike Carter, who plays Bib Fortuna, the guy in Jabba's palace with the strange long ears, he texted me and said, 'MACLUNKEY!' I said, 'What the f--k are you talking about?' He said, 'New discovery! It could be as important as Howard Carter and the Tutankhamun tomb.'" Blake explained.
Unfortunately, it sounds like Blake doesn't have Disney+ yet and hasn't seen the new version of A New Hope. However, it didn't take long for him to realize what was happening.
"I didn’t know what he was talking about for 10 minutes, until I had a look at the scene and thought, 'Oh right, yeah.' Disney or Lucasfilm, they're the last people that ever inform us of anything really -- unless it's the lawyers, then we hear from them pretty quick," Blake joked.
First of all, it's nice to know that the actors from the original trilogy are still friends after all these years. It would be great to see Bib and Greedo hanging out somewhere just laughing about the funny lines they have uttered in the Star Wars movies.
De wanna wanga? Oh, I mean, if you haven't seen the new version of Greedo's A New Hope scene, you can stream it on Disney+ now.
