  • Solo: A Star Wars Story's Alden Ehrenreich Reportedly Reprising his ...
    2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story didn't exactly hit the mark amongst diehard fans of the franchise but some still found the film entertaining, despite it failing to meet critical and box office expectations. Alden Ehrenreich's portrayal of a young Han Solo also seemed to click with some fans, so much so that they'd like to see him reprise the role in a future project. Now, to those hoping to see Alden return to the Star Wars universe, we've got some promising news for you. According to an exclusive scoop from Giant Freakin Robot, Ehrenreich is set to get another shot at playing the famed smuggler made famous by the legendary Harrison Ford. According to the report, Han Solo is set to appear in several Star Wars spinoff shows which could include The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and possibly the solo Lando series should Donald Glover reprise the role. As it stands, nothing has been officially confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt but considering the buzz generated by Luke Skywalker's return in The Mandalorian Season 2, it wouldn't be too farfetched to believe that Han could also follow suit. After all, the character is still alive and well during the timeline. This will also be a good thing for Alden as the actor was originally set to appear in at least three projects but plans ultimately changed when Solo: A Star Wars Story bombed at the box office. But hey, you know what they say about second chances, right? This new opportunity could totally be the redemption story he needs so I'm definitely all for it. Meanwhile, all episodes of The Mandalorian are available for streaming on Disney+. Also Read: The Mandalorian: Gina Carano's Role Reportedly In Peril if She Doesn't Apologize to Fans

  • Epic Games' Free Star Wars Battlefront II Promo Attracts Over 19 ...
    Star Wars Battlefront II (no, not the classic 2005 game) isn't as celebrated as other Star Wars video game titles but it surely experienced quite the attention last weekend when Epic Games made it available for free via a special promotion on their site. Avid gamers and first-time players alike flocked the Epic Games online store to score their free copies of the 2017 action shooter game.  The promo may have looked like a gamble considering the title is still relatively new but it still paid off as the free Star Wars Battlefront promotion was able to attract a lot of gamers worldwide. Electronic Arts, the game's developer celebrated the milestone on Twitter by announcing that over 19 million players downloaded the game. EA's official Star Wars Twitter handle wrote: "More than 19M PLAYERS got #StarWarsBattlefrontII from the Epic Game Store promo! Thank you so much for the continued support, even after our final content drop! We’ll watch your careers with great interest! May the Force be with you, troopers!"   More than 19M PLAYERS got #StarWarsBattlefrontII from the Epic Game Store promo!?Thank you so much for the continued support, even after our final content drop!

I don't know about you but the future of the franchise game-wise looks pretty promising. Meanwhile, for your other Star Wars fix, all episodes of The Mandalorian are available on Disney+.

  • Green Goblin Actor Dane DeHaan Breaks Silence on MCU Spider-Man 3 ...
    Tom Holland's third Spider-Man film has been the talk of the entire Marvel fandom for months now and it all began when it was announced late last year that Jamie Foxx will be reprising his role as Electro, a character he portrayed in 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a project that doesn't take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The bombshell news was then followed up by the confirmation that Alfred Molina's Doc Ock who appeared in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 will also be joining the film. Of course, this led a lot of fans to speculate that more characters from previous non-MCU Spidey flicks could appear in the yet-to-be-titled Homecoming 3.   One persistent rumor suggests that Dane DeHaan, who also appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin will also be joining the MCU along with his co-star Andrew Garfield. Now, DeHaan is finally breaking his silence regarding his alleged involvement in the film. Appearing in a press conference for his latest project ZeroZeroZero (via RadioTimes), Dane dismissed previous reports linking him to the upcoming Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures production. "There’s no truth to those rumors," he said. "I don’t even know how that would be pulled off." Now, this may just be another case of fans going overboard with their assumptions but I wouldn't exactly rule out the possibility of DeHaan reprising his role as Green Goblin considering we're getting two villains from different non-MCU properties. We've yet to get confirmation from both Marvel Studios and Sony regarding the true nature of the film but at this point, it's pretty safe to assume that it'll be the franchise's take on the Spider-Verse. The MCU's Spider-Man 3 is slated for release in December. Also Read: Spider-Man 3: Marvel Studios Reportedly Infuriated by Tobey Maguire's 'Diva' Attitude

  • Loki Actor Tom Hiddleston Becomes The Joker in Stunning Image
    Just when you thought Tom Hiddleston's Marvel Cinematic Universe journey was over, his iconic character the God of Mischief is set for a fresh start in the franchise via the upcoming Disney+ series Loki and the show's first official trailer which debuted last December left us with a ton of questions surrounding the character's new role in the MCU. But what if Hiddleston's stint in the MCU truly ended following Loki's death in Avengers: Infinity War? Here's an even more intriguing question: what if Hiddleston jumped ship to the DC universe to play another iconic comic book villain? Digital artist Jaxson Derr is toying with the idea of Tom moving over to the DC film franchise to star in Matt Reeves' The Batman as the one and only Clown Prince of Crime The Joker opposite Robert Pattinson who's playing a different iteration of the caped crusader. Making use of a still from the Loki trailer, the artist tweaked the colors of Loki's suit to make him more Joker-ish. I'm not gonna lie, this one looks pretty darn good and now that I think about it, Hiddleston as The Joker could be a good idea. See the artwork for yourself below:              View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Jaxson Derr (@jaxsonderr) However, don't expect Tom to turn up elsewhere (get it?) anytime soon as it's crystal clear that Marvel Studios still has plans for Thor's adopted brother who just can't seem to die in the franchise. Hiddleston's latest outing as the condescending and conniving Loki is pretty interesting too as he's set to play a different Loki from an entirely different timeline. What could that mean for the current MCU canon?   Loki hits Disney+ this May.   Also Read: Chris Hemsworth Confirms Thor: Love and Thunder Production Start in New Instagram Photo

  • The Mandalorian: Gina Carano's Role Reportedly In Peril if She ...
    Gina Carano definitely turned a lot of heads in the entertainment industry thanks to her involvement in the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Her character Cara Dune quickly gained a strong following after the first season but over the last couple of months, fans have seemed to go sour on the actress and Carano has found herself on the receiving end of a massive backlash.   A lot of you already know by now that Carano's socio-political views have put her in major trouble. Apparently, Disney has been keeping a close eye on her social media activity as of late and according to a new rumor, her actions may end up costing her her spot in the Star Wars franchise. A new report from Inside the Magic suggests that Carano's involvement in The Mandalorian could be in peril if she doesn't issue a proper apology to her fans and the people she has offended with her views regarding mail-in voting and the anti-mask propaganda. According to their insider, Carano may get recast in the series for its upcoming third season, or even worse, the Cara Dune character could be written off entirely. Gina has yet to issue an official statement regarding the backlash she's been getting but she still uses her social media platform to oftentimes throw some shade at her detractors. Although recently, she's been using Twitter to send out tweets about positivity, inspiration, and empowerment and one would think that Disney has something to do about her sudden social media "silence".  All episodes of The Mandalorian are available for streaming on Disney+.

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Had the Biggest Digital Launch of Any Video Game ...
    Cyberpunk 2077 was arguably 2020's most anticipated video game release but it didn't quite hit the mark and it ended up being a massive disappointment. But despite its technical glitches and nagging performance issues, the folks over at CD Projekt still have something to brag about as Cyberpunk 2077 apparently had the biggest digital launch of all time.             View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Cyberpunk 2077 (@cyberpunkgame) The official stats came from SuperData's world digital games market report for December 2020. According to the said report, Cyberpunk 2077 was able to sell a whopping 10.2 million dollars worth of digital copies, with 80% of those sales coming from PC purchases.  The now-controversial video game has bested other well-known titles such as League of Legends, World of Warcraft West, Dungeon Fighter Online, Fortnite, and Roblox among others. The CD Projekt game also reportedly helped digital game sales reach $12 billion in December. Not too shabby at all considering the underwhelming response from fans since its release. Now, while I don't think that this is something CD Projekt would be totally proud of, it still proves that Cyberpunk 2077 is a hot commodity despite all the issues gamers have been dealing with in-game. Hopefully, the game's developers will be able to turn the tide around once they release the new and improved version of the game as I've heard that the latest patch still features several problems.  Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release a new patch in February.

  • Obi-Wan Series: Jar Jar Binks Will Reportedly Sport a New Look in the ...
    Star Wars fans rejoiced in 2019 when it was announced that Ewan McGregor was set to make his triumphant return to the franchise to reprise his iconic role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a standalone spinoff series. A year later, it was confirmed that his co-star Hayden Christensen will also be part of the said show which will be set post-Revenge of the Sith.   If those returns weren't enough for you, new rumors suggest that Jar Jar Binks could also be making his comeback in Obi-Wan much to the chagrin of his critics who have long hated the Naboo native Gungan. Now, according to the latest scoop from Making Star Wars, Jar Jar could be undergoing a major change in his appearance. The foolish Gungan who has always sported a clean-shaven look in the franchise is said to be sporting a beard in the forthcoming series. The idea of him having facial hair seems pretty unsettling but we'll leave it up to you to imagine how he'd end up looking. Sure, Jar Jar may have been one of the prequel trilogy's most divisive characters but we can't deny the fact that he can already be considered a Star Wars icon regardless of the reaction he generates. If anything, the Obi-Wan series could help bring more substance to the character and finally turn Binks into a fan-favorite. Of course, that is all wishful thinking for now so let's just wait and see how they'll pull everything off. Obi-Wan is set for release in 2022.

  • WandaVision Star Elizabeth Olsen Says She Felt 'Uncomfortable' ...
    2021 marks Marvel actress Elizabeth Olsen's 10th year in the entertainment industry and considering the fact that she's only been in the industry for a full decade, her acting resume has already been quite impressive. It can't be denied that her involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe helped make her a household name in the business, not to mention an overnight sensation.             View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Marvel Studios (@marvelstudios) Speaking of, Olsen currently appears in the Disney+ series WandaVision and so far, the MCU spinoff series is off to a great start. However, working on the project was apparently a daunting task for the actress and according to her, she didn't feel comfortable while filming the show. In a new interview with lifestyle magazine Elle, Elizabeth shared that WandaVision may have been her most challenging project to date and it may stem from the fact that she's no longer playing second fiddle in the franchise, going from a supporting character to headlining her own show. Elizabeth shares: "I've only been working for 10 years, but there is this feeling where you start to get comfortable... WandaVision was the furthest thing from comfortable for me. It felt intimidating. The character is a completely different thing." The Scarlet Witch actress is definitely dealing with a ton of pressure but considering the show has been doing extremely well so far, I think she has nothing to worry about. That being said, things are starting to heat up in WandaVision as we approach the premiere of Episode 4. The last episode left us with a lot of questions and it's looking pretty evident that we're about to enter some serious territory.  All three episodes of WandaVision are already up for streaming on Disney+.

  • The Punisher Reportedly Set for MCU Reboot with Jon Bernthal Returning
    Marvel's Netflix shows have gained quite a strong following over the years and fans have been waiting for characters like Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and The Punisher to crossover to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.             View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by The Punisher (@thepunisher) For some reason still unbeknownst to many, their arrival to the franchise has yet to happen but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige himself hasn't ruled out the possibility of them joining their shared universe. Now, a new report suggests that Marvel Studios is eyeing Frank Castle actor Jon Bernthal to reprise his role as the ruthless vigilante in the billion-dollar franchise. The folks over at Giant Freakin Robot are reporting that Bernthal will indeed return as The Punisher but there's a catch — the character is set for a reboot which means that all traces of his Netflix past will be erased. Nothing has been confirmed yet as of writing but if the rumors end up being true, the decision to reboot the character should be interesting. It also pretty much confirms that if actors like Charlie Cox, Finn Jones, Mike Colter, and Krysten Ritter were to join the MCU, their backstories will be considered non-canon. To be fair though, it wasn't exactly confirmed whether The Defenders is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or not so the choice to reboot them does make sense. Meanwhile, you can check out episodes of The Punisher on Netflix. Also Read: Daredevil Fans Rally Behind Charlie Cox as Rights Officially Revert to Marvel

  • WandaVision May Have Already Teased Magneto's Arrival as Early as ...
    Fans have been speculating that WandaVision could potentially set up the arrival of the mutants now that Marvel Studios finally owns the rights to the characters. The show, led by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany may have felt like a slow burn to some people but eagle-eyed fans have been able to spot several easter eggs and nods to previous MCU films and comics.             View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by WandaVision (@wandavision) Now, you may not realize it, but WandaVision just might have established its connection to arguably the X-Men's greatest adversary Magneto who happens to be Scarlet Witch's "father" in the comics and it happened as early as the second episode. In the '60s-themed episode where Wanda and Vision join Westview's annual talent competition, the two portrayed a magician duo nicknamed Glamour and Illusion. During their final act, Vision brings out the "Cabinet of Mystery" which we saw at the beginning of the episode. But due to him experiencing a malfunction thanks to the chewing gum he accidentally ingested, Vision made a little slip and ended up calling it the "Magnet of Crysteries". Of course, it makes absolutely no sense at all but if you'd put the first two words ("Magnet" and "of") together, you'll come up with the name Magneto. You may think that it's all just coincidental or we're just probably reaching but let's not act like Marvel Studios hasn't pulled some clever easter eggs in the past. And considering the show is rumored to retcon Wanda as a mutant, could it mean that Erik Lehnsherr is actually lurking somewhere in Maximoff's pocket reality? What if he's one of the show's main villains? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. WandaVision is now streaming on Disney+.
