‘Star Wars: Darth Vader #1′ Review

23 June 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Giuseppe Camuncoli | Published by Marvel Comics

When the previous Darth Vader series ended it was somewhat of a surprise. Story wise it made sense however it is not common for Marvel to stop a series that is so finically successful. Of course, it was only a matter of time until it returned as now we are seeing a new team take over the character. Charles Soule brings the book back to the very beginning as this opens in the famous final moments of ‘Revenge of the Sith with everyone’s favorite ‘Noo!!” cry. Perhaps Soule wanted to start as a down note to lower expectations from the start.

Kieron Gillen made the previous series work by building a strong supporting class around Darth Vader. Vader may be the most famous villain in movie history, but in all honesty, he is not the most dynamic character in the world. The more you see of him the less effective he works as a character. He is like the shark in Jaws.  The possibility of his presence is enough to capture emotion and propel excitement. What Charles Soule is doing with this series is asking how exactly did he get to that point.

Here Vader does not even have his trusty lightsaber. Quickly though we see Vader does not need his toys to be a major threat. This leads to a first issue that works well as a piece of entertainment. Those who prefer their Vader being a badass will get their wish. Looking at the general story there is not much there. It was basically the first level of a video game that is specifically designed to allow you to learn the moves. Now that Soule has gotten some practice he can hopefully move to some more complex maneuvers in future issues.

Thankfully Giuseppe Camuncoli’s art stays away from the photo referencing that has plagued these Star Wars books in the past. His Emperor may look a little strange, but outside of that, it is a gorgeous looking book. The Star Wars comics look best when you have high-quality cartooning that is not attempting to simply recreate actors faces. By default, when Darth Vader is your main character you avoid that issue without much effort. We are finally finding out how Darth Vader became Darth Vader. The only question is if that is a story worth telling.

16 June 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen‘s daughter is still too young to understand what Mom and Dad do – and the actress hopes to keep it that way for a while.

“We’ll probably avoid that for as long as possible,” Bilson, 35, tells People in this week’s issue of introducing Briar Rose, 2½, to her and partner Christensen’s onscreen personas. “Especially because her dad is who he is.”

Christensen, 36, famously portrayed Anakin Skywalker – a.k.a. (spoiler alert!) Darth Vader – in Star Wars: Episode IIAttack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

Joel Edgerton wants Star Wars return

10 June 2017 1:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having portrayed the character of Owen Lars is Star Wars: Episode IIAttack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, actor Joel Edgerton has revealed that he’s keen for a return to the galaxy far, far away should Disney and Lucasfilm pull the trigger on the rumoured Obi-Wan Kenobi movie – and failing that, he’s open to taking on a different role.

“I like the idea that Uncle Owen is one of those guys who has done some super cool shit but has just never bragged about it,” Edgerton tells Business Insider. “My idea is that he could go out and have some adventure and then he comes back and slips back into that unassuming moisture farmer role. Everyone talks about Obi-Wan being super cool, Owen secretly knows that he was there, and he did some of the cool shit, too.”

Star Wars is alive and very well, in case you hadn't noticed.

Joel Edgerton expresses interest in reprising his role as Owen Lars in a possible Obi-Wan project

9 June 2017 5:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The pressure for Disney to develop an Obi-Wan movie after the roaring successes of the new batch of Star Wars offerings seems to be ramping up a gear or two of late, especially when you have the likes of Ewan McGregor showing their interest in reprising their roles if one emerges.

Related: Obi-Wan movie news

It hasn’t taken too long for another star in the form of Joel Edgerton to jump on the support wagon to make an Obi-Wan movie, one in which fans are calling to be the third in the spin-off anthology after Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo movie. Edgerton briefly played the younger version of Uncle Owen in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In a recent interview with Business Insider Edgerton stated;

Joel Edgerton Wants In On The Obi-Wan Kenobi Spinoff, Would Also Play Boba Fett

8 June 2017 9:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After the smashing success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, all eyes are on Disney to see where they take the spinoffs next. As great as the main saga entries are, there’s something especially exciting about these Anthology films, as they look to present audiences with characters and stories previously unexplored. And in a universe as vast as the one that surrounds Star Wars, there’s an absolute goldmine of material worthy of adaptation.

Up next, of course, is Han Solo, which promises to be another slam dunk for the studio, but after that, the future is a bit unclear. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that the next spinoff will be announced this month, but to date, we still haven’t heard anything about it. If we had to guess though, Obi-Wan Kenobi might be about to get his chance in the spotlight, as fans have been »

Comic Book Review – Star Wars: Darth Vader #1

8 June 2017 3:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews Star Wars: Darth Vader #1…

The most fearsome villain of all time returns with an all-new series! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, the former chosen one must take his first steps into a darker world…as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!

Of all the villains in pop culture, Darth Vader stands as one of the most memorable ever. He’s been an iconic figure for 40 years, though his backstory still has quite a few gaps. Beyond his turn to the Dark Side shown in Revenge of the Sith, we don’t know the full transition former Jedi Anakin Skywalker took to become the feared Sith Lord Darth Vader.

Star Wars Comic Reveals How Sith Lightsabers Are Made

7 June 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was previously revealed why Sith lightsabers are red. It's because the Kyber crystals inside of them are alive and they bleed. But how does a Sith go about constructing their lightsaber? That is a myth that is finally revealed and made part of the official Star Wars canon in a new Star Wars comic book. And it's just as ominous and evil as any fan can imagine. Basically, the Sith torture the living crystal, filling them with immense pain.

As any Star Wars fan worth their weight in action figures can attest, a Sith's lightsaber is always red. And that color comes from the Kyber crystal inside. While George Lucas didn't have any substantial backstory for this when he made A New Hope back in 1977, Disney is fully fleshing out this universe, and giving every minuscule thing a reason for existing. Where Lucas just thought it was cool for »

Proof Rey Is Reincarnated in The Last Jedi?

27 May 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will any of the mysteries surrounding the new characters introduced in The Force Awakens be revealed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? We know that Snoke's big unveiling won't happen until Star Wars 9. But what about Rey's parentage? Her backstory? Anything? Well, Lucasfilm has officially confirmed that Rey gets to keep Luke's old blue lightsaber, which once belonged to his father Anakin Skywalker. That should come as no surprise. As we've seen Rey using the lightsaber to train in the first Star Wars 8 teaser. And she's brandishing it on all of the merchandise that has been released thus far. But it's what Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Pablo Hidalgo recently said to Vanity Fair that has some fans raising their eyebrow. Could a long-standing rumor about Rey be true?

When The Last Jedi began production last year, rumors started to spread that Rey is reincarnated. And that will be the big reveal in the movie. »

Next Star Wars Spin-Off Will Be Decided Next Month

26 May 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Celebration answered an awful lot of questions for fans last month, but there was one big, burning question we are all still waiting to have answered. Disney and Lucasfilm currently have an unnamed Star Wars Story slated for 2020, but they haven't yet decided on what it is going to be. So, when are we going to find out? Well, it looks like Lucasfilm is very close to deciding on what movie they are moving forward with, according to Kathleen Kennedy.

Speaking with Vanity Fair recently, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy spoke a bit about where they are at in terms of the unnamed Star Wars spin-off. According to her, they have a couple of ideas on the table and they are close to making a decision on which one they are going to move forward with. Here's what she had to say about it.

Third Star Wars Anthology Movie Will Be Revealed Next Month

25 May 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm, has revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that the next Star Wars Anthology movie will be decided very soon. In fact, we could learn what it is as early as next month, if she’s to be believed.

“We haven’t identified it yet, but yes. We have a couple of things right now that we’re circling, and we’ll make a decision between the two pretty shortly. It’s probably for 2020, and we will make a decision by June.”

The film will follow in the footsteps of Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One and Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s still untitled Han Solo spinoff. These Anthology movies were, at one point, regarded with a certain amount of scepticism, with the worst case scenario that they’d be a forgettable cash-in between ‘proper’ episodes in the franchise.

Rogue One pretty much put that to bed, »

Numb Trailer Has Hayden Christensen Preparing for the Apocalypse

22 May 2017 10:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Cannes Film Festival is currently in full swing in the south of France, and one of the movies being sold to worldwide buyers at the fest is Numb, At the Edge of the End. Vmi Worldwide has debuted the first trailer for this indie thriller, as it seeks international buyers at Cannes. The film doesn't have a release date in place yet, and it doesn't seem that the film has a domestic distributor quite yet, but that may change at the festival.

The story follows Kurt Matheson (Hayden Christensen) a war veteran with Ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah (Harvey Keitel), he leaves his normal life and begins the construction of a shelter underground, training himself in an extreme way, at the cost of losing everything. He soon makes people believe he is insane. »

The Week in Star Wars – First Han Solo set photos, Emperor Palpatine returning and more

21 May 2017 1:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Star Wars returns with news from the set of Han Solo, a possible rumour for Star Wars Rebels and more…

With Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (not the official title) underway, we can expect to see snappers getting some pictures from the set. We had our first official look at the cast a couple of months ago, but this set photo has given us our first glimpse at Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic smuggler. Check out the photo here…

…Looking ahead to this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi now, and the new Japanese poster for the movie has given us one more reason to be excited. According to the poster’s tag line, the second part of the new trilogy will feature “the most shocking truth in Star Wars history”. Check it out here…

The original ending to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith would have seen Padme trying to kill Anakin

20 May 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the final meeting on Mustafar between Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith almost played out much differently to what we saw in the final chapter of the Prequel Trilogy, with Lucasfilm concept artist Ian McCaig revealing that George Lucas’ original plan was to have Padme attempting to end the threat of the newly-anointed Dark Lord of the Sith.

“Right behind his back, [Padme] is starting the Rebellion to overthrow him, because Padme can see the he is becoming a monster,” said McCaig (via Comic Book). “At the end, on Mustafar, when she goes to see [Anakin], she has a knife in her hands. She gets off the ship with the knife, she runs up and throws her arms around him, and he lets her. She’s got the knife to the back of [Anakin’s] neck and she’s going to kill him. »

Want To Know How Rogue One’s Cassian And K-2So Met? Marvel’s Got Your Back

19 May 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rogue One‘s motley crew of traitors, saboteurs, terrorists and criminals made for a fascinating departure from usual Star Wars fare, their all-too-brief on-screen appearances leading fans to speculate about the exciting adventures they’d been on prior to the events of the film. One of the biggest questions was how Cassian and his droid buddy K-2So came to travel with one another. It’s something that many fans have been wondering about and now, a new comic book is going to fill in that particular blank, telling us precisely how Cassian first encountered K-2So and liberated him from the slavery of Imperial servitude.

The full title is Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2So Special #1, to be written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Fernando Blanco. As yet, we don’t know what the meat of the story is, but we do have the cover for »
