It's hard not to think of Han Solo when the Millennium Falcon comes to mind and despite all of the characters that have piloted the iconic spacecraft, most of us are well aware that it is owned by the "stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder". Well, that all changes now as Star Wars confirms that another character also owned the Millennium Falcon for a brief period.

In Marvel Comics' Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #8 (via ComicBook), it was revealed that Greedo, the same creature involved in the years-long "who shot first" discourse was the second owner of the ship. It turns out that when Han was believed to be dead in the ongoing story, Greedo temporarily assumed ownership of the Falcon.

Of course, Han would later resurface to take back his property so I guess Greedo will always end up empty-handed.

Speaking of the beloved character, fans have been clamoring to see Solo continue his pre-Skywalker Saga adventures in live-action. While a sequel to 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story seems improbable right now, director Ron Howard revealed he's down to return to Star Wars should Lucasfilm give him a call.

With the production company continuously expanding the franchise through the Disney+ streaming platform, virtually anything is possible so I'll never say never just yet. Who knows, Alden Ehrenreich might be given his shot at redemption in the future.
