Will We Really Get 3 Standalone HAN SOLO Movies?

Will We Really Get 3 Standalone HAN SOLO Movies?

We’re a month away from Solo, but just how many more scruffy nerf herder movies are we going to get? On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed the possible future for Han Solo, along with our reaction to the Venom trailer, and if the massive Disney-Fox merger could fall apart.

Today’s guest host Amy Vorpahl was joined by producer Jesse Gill, editor Kyle Anderson, and our social media manager Michelle Buchman, and they started by getting symbiotic with the first full Venom trailer. What did we think of it? Who will be film’s standout? Evergreen question: what’s up with Tom Hardy’s voice? Why are they saying “Symbiote” like that? And how successful can this movie be without Spider-Man?

They also broke down Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige’s comments when he was asked whether the Disney-Fox merger would change plans for the MCU’s next phase. Do we believe him when he says no? Could the deal really still fall apart? Is this just all a major misdirection before things get fantastic (four) for Marvel? Do we think the X-Men can even be integrated into the the MCU? And do we buy his comments about why they have kept the title for Avengers 4 a secret? Did it really blow up in their faces?

Finally, Alden Ehrenreich let slip he is actually signed up for three movies with Lucasfilm. Are we excited about this? Or are we nervous about his performance as the iconic space smuggler? Does this mean Donald Glover has also signed on for more films too? If not, uh, why!? What would it take for Solo to be called a flop? How would that change the plans for future Star Wars standalone films? And does this confirm the theory Lucasfilm wants the third Han Solo movie to end with him walking into the Mos Eisley Cantina?
