Where's the Han Solo Trailer? Twitter Account Creator Speaks

In what has become the strangest news story about Star Wars in the existence of the franchise, the lack of a trailer for one specific film has created more conversation than perhaps the existence of footage for a film everyone is excited about. With roughly four months until it is thought to released, Solo: A Star Wars Story still hasn’t revealed any footage to the public. And now, there’s a fan-made Twitter account specifically documenting this Millennium Falcon-shaped void. And guess what? He loves Rogue One.

The Twitter account @Solomovieyet is a great example of contemporary minimalist internet humor. Obviously, when the trailer drops, the joke is kind of over. But that’s okay. “I started this account to make the wait a little more funny,” Enrique Delgadillo tells Inverse. He’s the guy behind the “Is the Solo Trailer Out Yet?” Twitter account and he lives in Paraguay, South America. “I think that Star Wars fans — all of us — really demand a lot. There’s only four months for the movie and we have nothing. And I just thought: just make it funny.”

Delgadillo has succeeded there, again, with expertly placed minimalist deadpan humor. Today, @Solomovieyet just tweeted one word “No.” Yesterday it was “Nope.”

From his point of view, Delgadillo thinks “all the movies are really good,” but believes the franchise needs newer, more inventive films to continue to stay relevant. “Works like Rogue One is what we need, Gareth Edwards did a really great work,” he says.

For now, Delgadillo is reserving judgment on whether or not Solo, or its trailer, will be any good. “I really want to watch the trailer first before I throw any opinion,” he says. “But, I admit it will be really interesting to watch Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke in a Star Wars movie, I think their roles are gonna be really good.”

For now, if you want to make sure you know when the Solo trailer actually drops, Delgadillo might be the only newsfeed you need to watch.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is still slated for a May 25, 2018 release, despite the trailer still being mysteriously lost in hyperspace.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Claims Collecting Infinity Stones Is Unnecessary

Avengers: Endgame theories have been focused on which Infinity Stones might be needed to defeat Thanos, but what if the answer is none of them? An intriguing new theory offers a clever alternative, and injects a time travel subplot into Avengers: Infinity War at the same time.

Redditor u/webdevnoobs1 recently broke down the theory, which hinges on the idea that the Avengers could travel back in time and drain the Infinity Stones of their power without actually taking the stones themselves.

'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 Release Date, Trailer, Plot, and More

The superheroes of The Umbrella Academy have work to do to save the world.

A new group of superheroes just arrived on Netflix in The Umbrella Academy, and maybe you decided to use the holiday weekend to binge all 10 episodes of Season 1. If you did, you’re probably wondering when you’ll get to see Umbrella Academy Season 2 and the resolution to that insane cliffhanger.

Kylo Ren’s New Helmet in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Might Be a Secret Twist

Everyone assumes Kylo will don his old helmet again, but there could be something much more interesting happening.

Helmets are a big deal in Star Wars. They surround the heads of popular characters, penetrate our psyches, and bind the merchandising galaxy of Lucasfilm together. In some ways, the entire popularity of Star Wars is connected to sweet-looking helmets. Which is why the rumored return of Kylo Ren’s old helmet in Star Wars: Episode IX is such a big deal. In The Force Awakens, Kylo rocked a Darth Vader knock-off helmet, but after getting teased about it by Snoke in The Last Jedi, he broke the thing into little pieces. Now, in leaked photos, it looks like Kylo’s helmet is back for Episode IX, but what if there’s a twist here? What if the helmet is back, but Kylo Ren isn’t wearing it?

Adam Warlock in 'Avengers: Endgame'? Here's What One Marvel Director Said

Speculation that Adam Warlock could appear in Avengers: Endgame cropped up this week, but this isn’t the first we’ve heard of Marvel’s plans for a movie version of the comic book character. Eight hundred years ago Last year, former Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn teased what Adam Warlock’s role would look like in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Prior to his forced exit from the franchise, Gunn had a plan for the cosmic superhero that went beyond Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
