At last year's Comic-Con, Marvel held the last panel on Saturday night and they did it in grand fashion. Edgar Wright came on stage and showed the very first footage from 'Ant-Man.' The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' lineup was revealed. And Robert Downey, Jr. came dancing down the aisles of Hall H to introduce 'Iron Man 3.' But all that pomp and circumstance could be missing from Comic-Con 2013 as Marvel and 'Star Wars' could sit this year out. Say it ain't so!
Star Wars Episode 7
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has attracted the attention of many actors, from the original cast (who have signed on to return) to even those, like Olivia Munn, who are practically begging for a role. But there's one guy who bold enough to admit he wants no part of the new 'Star Wars' trilogy: Jason Statham.
As 'Star Wars: Episode 7' speculation continues regarding the original 'Star Wars' cast's return, we take a time-out from that buzz to focus on another crucial character in the franchise's universe: Lando Calrissian. Will Han Solo's smooth operator of a friend also be appearing in the next trilogy?
Billy Dee Williams has spoken out about the possibility, and his comments just might surprise you! And yes, it's definitely more substantial than the last time Williams addressed the matter.
Are they in or aren't they? That's the biggest question revolving around 'Star Wars: Episode 7' at the moment: is the original cast actually returning? We've heard "confirmations" from various sources, but there's still a large question mark hovering over the matter.
Today we might be a little closer to a definitive answer on the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' cast, coming straight from George Lucas himself.
Part of the burden that comes with something as big as 'Star Wars: Episode 7' is the constant chatter of which stars might be boarding a "galaxy far, far away." Thanks to J.J. Abrams' involvement in the new trilogy, everyone's been wondering whether or not he'll be bringing over some of his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' talent into the new 'Star Wars' universe. Now that Zoe Saldana has expressed interest and may even fight for a part, will this become a reality?
Now that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' is on the way, you'd think that we've officially exhausted the original trilogy...but it looks like we're just getting started. Just when you think that you've seen everything to ever come out of 'Star Wars,' a fascinating thirty-year-old documentary about the making of 'The Empire Strikes Back' emerges and you suddenly feel like you've seen nothing. Watch if for yourself below.
The one problem with 'Star Wars Episode 7' news is that at least half of it going to be absolute bunk or inflated misinformation. Those that remember the years leading up to 'Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace' will recall the sheer amount of BS that flew over the then-young internet and how much of it was accepted as fact by fans. So let's take the rumor that director Alfonso Cuaron and beloved geek actor Simon Pegg are joining the 'Star Wars' universe with a pound or two of salt.
