Hey friends! Welcome to this weeks The Weekly Bugle Vol 3. We have a lot to discuss including the nightmare inducing Mandalorian episode, Black Widow, 007, and more!
The Weekly Bugle Vol 3
Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode Two The Passenger.
The Mandalorian Season 2 The Passenger
I think we can all agree two things have united the Star Wars fandom–Baby Yoda and the fact that Chapter 10 is one we never need to watch again. Those Krykna Spiders were nightmare inducing. We blame Peyton and Dave for that one, too many space bugs!!
Speaking of Dave Filoni he cameoed in this episode reprising his role of Trapper Wolf alongside mega Star Wars fan and actor Paul Sun-Hyung Lee of Kim’s Convenience.
One of our favorite easter eggs was actually the aliens in the beginning. They are from a planet in Hutt Territory. Like the Krayt Dragon pearl, nothing is for nothing in these episodes. With everything decided on deliberately does this mean we can expect a run-in with Jabba in the future?
The New 007 Lashana Lynch
Haters gonna hate! Lashana Lynch is the new 007! After months of speculation, Lashana has confirmed she will be the new 007. We know she is going to do an amazing job.
#MakeSolo2Happen has been circulating around Twitter for awhile. Ron Howard recently gave an interview about the possibility of the film or a Disney+ series happening.
Howard said: “I think there is interest in those characters. I think there’s interest in [the] gangster world… somewhere down the line.”
He added: “One great thing is that there’s been a lot of affection shown for Solo kind of in its afterlife, and so of course that keeps boding well for them to eventually turn it around.”
Meanwhile the screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan tweeted:
“Beyond grateful & galvanized by the #MakeSolo2Happen energy on Twitter today,” he wrote back in 2019. “Means so much to everyone involved and ur enthusiasm makes it possible for us to keep advocating for it! ‘Cause, the Maker knows, there’s a WAR story set in a Galaxy Far Far Away that’s yet to be told…”
We both enjoyed Solo and hope to see more stories told about that part of the Star Wars lore.
Brandon Routh as Superman in Flash
Brandon Routh played Superman before Henry Cavill, and recently reprised the role in Crisis of Infinite Earths. He has stated it’s absolutely a possibility that his Superman could appear in the Flash film.
Is this going to be a Spider-Man 3 situation or do you think it’s time he hung up his cape?
Tom Holland Spider-Man 3 Set Photo
Tom Holland recently shared an image from the set of Spider-Man 3. He is seen wearing his Far From Home suit with a blue screen backdrop. But that isn’t what has us talking. It’s the arm/hand combo of the person seen behind him.
Who is that costumed friend? Talos? Fury? Ned? We have some thoughts.
Johnny Depp Exits Fantastic Beasts
Some were shocked others not so much, Johnny Depp has officially exited the Fantastic Beasts franchise after Warner Bros reportedly asked him to. Real talk for a minute–is Johnny more problematic than JK Rowling? And where do you stand on them making more of these films? Should they just cut their losses and run? We have some opinions.
