So this is something I want to share with you, I grabbed this book called Sidekicks by Jack Ferraiolo in a Booksale and instantly loved it. We always talk about the main superheroes but what about their sidekicks? I mean Batman would always have his Robin. Superman has Jimmy Olsen and so on and so forth.
The lives of these side men are rarely tackled which is why Jack Ferraiolo’s offering is a brand new concept. As I am writing this I am reading the pages that are artistically made – actually if you skip though the pages to the end of the book you’ll read that it was art directed, which is cool.
First, Let’s take time to appreciate this great art work.
EU book The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader reveals that Vader personally gave the stormtroopers the order to kill Owen and Beru Lars, and that he knew who he was condemning to death before he gave the order.
It is also believed that he did this to have his revenge to the Lars, for not being strong enough in protecting his mother Shmi Skywalker from the hands of the Tusken Raiders.
So Vader indeed had knowledge of what happened to the Lars.
In CW’s Supergirl, Lynda Carter, simply the most famous of all who dare portray the Amazonian heroine, returns to the boobtube.
She quickly made her impact as America’s president aiming to sign an Alien Amnesty Bill. It is because Aliens hide in the shadows in National City, and her new law would allow extraterrestrial beings to reveal themselves without fear of persecution. (Real character inspiration?)
Note: Some time last year, Iceman, also known as Bobby Drake, or Robert Drake—at least his younger self—came out as gay when mind-reader Jean Grey outed him for saying “inappropriately sexual things” about one of their teachers, Magik.
Donald Glover has been casted as the best friend of young Han Solo. It’s been rumored weeks ago but now it’s official. He would be Lando Calrissian in the unofficially titled HAN SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
Donald Glover as Young Lando Calrissian in Hans Solo Star Wars Movie
Lucas film announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich — previously cast as Han Solo — in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.
“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”
Glover is best known for creating and starring in the critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta (which had the highest premiere numbers for any basic cable comedy show since 2013), as well as for starring in four seasons of the show Community, and for his Grammy-nominated album Because the Internet, performed under the name Childish Gambino. In addition, Glover appeared in the Academy Award-nominated The Martian, and will be seen in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release in 2018.
