eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars: Episode VIII header image

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will pave the way for future Star Wars spinoffs. These films will focus on the untold stories that are considered legend within the universe. While there is excitement to see more Star Wars, there is also a little bit of anxiety as it is unclear what the future may hold for these spinoffs and what will happen beyond Episode IX.

From what we know so far, Gareth EdwardsRogue One will center on a group of rebels’ daring mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, while Christopher Miller and Phil Lord will direct a young Han Solo spinoff. As for the saga films, Rian Johnson is currently hard at work with the yet-to-be-titled Episode VIII, while Colin Trevorrow will be gearing up for Episode IX. After that, well, your guess is as good as ours.

Black Metal Friday: Galactic Empire ‘Star Wars’ Main Theme

As you all know, Black Metal Friday is our weekly celebration of the worship of “The Dark Side” in heavy metal music. Well, in honor of today’s long-awaited premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, we here at Geeks of doom present to you a video from the folks over at Galactic Empire. In the clip, we get to check out a metal rendition of John Williams’ iconic Star Wars theme performed not for the dark side but rather by the dark side.

That’s right kiddies, Darth Vader, a shadow guard, and an imperial guard on lead guitars; a run of the mill storm trooper on bass (hey, are they implying that bass players are non-descript?); everyone’s favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett on drums; and one very unlucky guitar tech. So take the advice of a very wise master: “Watch it below, you must… Enjoy it, you will.”

Michael B. Jordan Rumored To Play Boba Fett In ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff
eelyajekiM   |  

Michael B. Jordan rumored for Boba Fett

Josh Trank‘s heavily publicized ousting from one of the first Star Wars spinoffs was a result of his reported work ethic while on the set of Fantastic Four and his feud with its producer Simon Kinberg – who also happens to be a producer of the same spinoff. The fallout was that the film was pushed back indefinitely until Disney and Lucasfilm could find a possible replacement, with the two studios deciding to move ahead with a young Han Solo film, to be directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, instead.

Rumors are swirling that the delayed spinoff could focused on Boba Fett, and now a new rumor has emerged that Michael B. Jordan could be the one to play the iconic Mandalorian. More on this story below.

NYCC 2015 Cosplay

“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy…”

This weekend the most diverse collection of individuals on our planet have gathered together in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for this year’s New York Comic-Con. And a group of our contributing GoDs — (Athena, Danny, Sarah, Max, Eve, and me, Dave3, to be exact) — are here to provide coverage of all the goings-on of NYCC 2015.

Among my favorite things to do is walk the convention floor, checking out all the goodies, meeting artists, creators, exhibitors, fans, and cosplayers. And of course, taking pictures along the way. And I spent the majority of today doing exactly that: perusing the aisles of the convention floor, taking in the sites, the sounds, and the smells of the ever-growing yearly Geekdom collective.

Today’s highlights include a run-in with the Baseball Furies from The Warriors, Princess Sparklefist herself Captain Marvel, and the amazingly amusing webslinger amalgam, Spider-Met!

Anyhoo, hit the jump and check out my photo galleries from today.

The Movie God   |

A new fan film has surfaced set in the beloved Star Wars universe. It follows Boba Fett (his backpack has jets, you know) after his life took a bit of a turn for the worse in Return of the Jedi and he ended up in the belly of a sarlacc.

The short film (and I do mean short) picks up after the bounty hunter has miraculously found a way to escape the beast and is on to his next move. And while very short, it is an impressive achievement for a fan film. You can read a brief description and check out the short below.

Josh Trank’s Former ‘Star Wars Anthology’ Film Still In Development

Star Wars Boba Fett Header

The name Josh Trank has been in entertainment news a lot lately. The director came under fire for tweeting his frustrations on studio interference during the production of Fantastic Four, which then led to a series of reports citing his erratic behavior. But this wouldn’t be the first time that we heard of it. In fact, way back in May, he was let go from the second Star Wars Anthology film due to those reported acts of odd behavior.

At the time, it was thought that Trank’s Star Wars project was one of the two reported Star Wars Anthology films, and that his spot had been filled by directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord. But as it turns out, Miller and Lord’s Young Han Solo film is completely different from what Trank had been working on, and that Disney and Lucasfilm are still developing the film Trank has been on. More on the story below.

Not only that, but there are rumors that Jon Favreau and Matthew Vaughn are in talks to direct the film.

Could A Boba Fett Standalone ‘Star Wars’ Movie Be Closer Than We Thought?
Ryan Midnight   |  

Boba Fett

Almost immediately after Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise and announced that they would be making a new trilogy of films, there was also news of planned spin-off movies that would each center around one individual character from the Star Wars universe. Almost a year ago, we confirmed that there would indeed be Star Wars character movies, and we may be closer to hearing official news than we thought.

One of the characters that was brought up immediately as a potential candidate for a movie was Boba Fett, and now thanks to an off-the-cuff remark by TV producer and director Jon Schnepp, that rumor is getting some major fuel.
