Yep. Rumor has it that Joss Wheedon, the director of our favorite superhero movies(or if not your favorite, they should be) could be directing a star wars anthology movie.
Notice the word anthology, think spin off.
The first anthology movie is going to be directed by Gareth Edwards, recently of Godzilla fame. The movie will be about the rebel pilots who steal the death star plans, a plot that will be very interesting
“It’s about the fact that god’s not coming to save us, and we’re on our own,” said Edwards. “The absence of the Jedi is omnipresent in the film. It hangs over the whole movie.”
Yep. A film without Jedi. Think "Red Tails" meets "fast and furious" in space. An interesting decision for a movie, but not as interesting as the other anthology movie they've announced.
Prepare yourselves nerds.
That's right, the next anthology movie will be about the cloned son of Jango Fett, Boba Fett. A movie that will get everyone on their feet and pumped up for star wars. If Rogue One is "fast and furious" "red tails," then Boba Fett will be "NightCrawler" meets "Iron Man." That's why Joss Wheedon would he perfect to direct it. Iron man and Boba Fett are very similar when it comes to fighting.
And in other ways to.
Also, Joss Wheedon is great at putting easter eggs in movies and really focuses on the little details of a movie. And because these spinoff movies will get a large number of super fans going to see it, that's exactly what we want( me being a superfan).
So please Kathleen Kennedy, cast this man, undust the Slave II, and lets get this show on the road.
