Donald Glover Lando Calrissian

The final verse of the 2010 song “Fuck It All” from Childish Gambino – the rap alias of multi-hyphenate Donald Glover – ends with this line: “To all my fans who sayin’ ‘Donald Glover ’bout to blow,’ just give me six months so you can say ‘I told you so.'” It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since then, but Glover has indeed lived up to that promise: the dude has blown up in multiple entertainment fields, culminating with being cast as Lando Calrissian in Lucasfilm’s upcoming Han Solo movie.

In a new profile, the actor speaks about the director switch-up on that film, and we learn some more details about his meeting with original Lando actor Billy Dee Williams. Plus, there are new revelations about Glover’s roles in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Community that fans should find worthwhile.

Young Lando Photo

Update: Ron Howard has shared another image from the set, showing off another cool image that will delight Star Wars fans. Check it out below.

Production is back underway on the Han Solo spin-off that marks the next installment of the A Star Wars Story franchise films that are being released between milestone episodes of the Star Wars saga. Ron Howard stepped up to replace directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and now that the Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind director is hard at work on set, he’s showing fans a little glimpse behind the scenes.

So far there hasn’t been much to see on the set as Lucasfilm is still playing things pretty close to the vest while in production on the movie that has fans worried following the creative differences between Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan and the aforementioned departed directing duo. But today, Ron Howard shared a behind the scenes photo that finally gives us our first look at Donald Glover (or maybe his stand-in) as Lando Calrissian. Read More »

The Lion King Footage

Jon Favreau is directing a live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic The Lion King, and though we’ve heard about some of the cast members, the D23 Expo brought the official announcement of the entire cast.

The biggest news actually isn’t official yet, and that’s word that X-Men franchise star Hugh Jackman has landed the role of the villain Scar, the brother of the Pride Rock king Mufasa and uncle to the cub prince Simba, but we’re not really sure if that’s true or not. Find out more about The Lion King remake cast below as well as new details about the project. Read More »

Marvel Stars Before They Were Famous

By the time we’re done with The Avengers 4 in 2019, there will have been 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only does Marvel Studios have a massive roster of movies, but they have an insanely huge cast that they have to bring together when it’s time for The Avengers to assemble and save the world from an impending threat.

Most of the superheroes in the MCU are quite recognizable names who had long careers before joining comic book movies like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson, but others didn’t become household names until they starred in the Marvel movies in question. No matter how famous they are now thanks to the MCU, there was a time before these actors and actress were famous, and a new video highlights just what they were doing before you even knew who they were.

Donald Glover Lando

It feels like Disney and Lucasfilm’s young Han Solo Star Wars spin-off film has been shooting for ages already, and we still don’t even know what the official title is yet. We know Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) is playing the cocky young smuggler, but right now, it seems as if there might be even more interest surrounding actor/rapper Donald Glover’s portrayal of Han’s pal Lando Calrissian, the former owner of the Millennium Falcon. Glover hasn’t spoken much about stepping into the role famously played by Billy Dee Williams, but in a new interview, he opens up about the “complicated” character and describes how the experience has been so far. Spoiler alert: he’s loving it.
