Han’s greatest nemesis may be making his way into Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not, it’s not Han’s murdering son, Kylo Ren, but instead, that notorious fan-favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett.

On Friday, Entertainment Weekly continued their coverage of various interviews and exclusives from Solo, including a dive into the different smugglers, criminals and other scum and villainy expected to appear in the movie. But the big news isn’t even about Woody Harrelson’s crime boss Becket or Thandie Newton’s blaster-toting mercenary, Val. Instead, it’s all about the glimpse of someone who looks like Boba Fett in the background.

Writing for EW, Anthony Breznican noticed that very familiar helmet in the background of one of the behind-the-scenes photos in Solo certainly looks like the outline of Boba Fett’s helmet. Though, Breznican says it could just be a “trick of the eye,” even though it really looks like it’s probably totally Boba Fett. Unless it’s just someone with the same kind of Mandalorian helmet. After all, even Sabine Wren on Rebels rocks similar headgear.

Current Star Wars canon has the voice of Boba Fett sounding exactly like popular actor Jon Hamm, thanks to the fact that he plays the character in the totally official Star Wars audiobook, From a Certain Point of View. So, if Boba Fett is in Solo: A Star Wars Story, assuming he talks, will it be Jon Hamm?

Boba Fett’s first appearance is bizarrely connected with what fans consider to be the worst Star Wars thing ever: the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. At that point, Fett was voiced by Don Francks and was totally animated. In his first live action appearance in Empire Strikes Back, he was voiced by Jason Wingreen. But, after it was revealed that Boba Fett was a clone of Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones in 2002, Boba’s voice was retroactively replaced by Jango actor Temuera Morrison.

So, in theory, Morrison is the incumbent Boba Fett in terms of the films. Meaning, if Boba Fett is in Solo and he does talk, there’s a fair chance Morrison could play him.

At this point, we don’t have a long wait. Solo is out everywhere on May 25, 2018.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

What if the good guys just lose and abandon the continent altogether That’s the gist of the latest Game of Thrones Season 8 theory to emerge from Reddit.

Over on “A Reddit of Ice and Fire,” redditor alacer88 explained a short theory about how the HBO series might conclude. “What if the GoT finale would see everyone leaving Westeros and finding a safe place in Essos, where Daenerys is the only Queen,” the post reads. “We know from the last episodes that the dead and the white walkers cannot swim (except the ones who rescue the dragon from the bottom of the frozen lake for tying the chains).”

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.
