The hype for the troubled production of Solo: A Star Wars Story is at an all-time high and the cast continues to drop hints about the upcoming smuggler’s origin story.
Donald Glover has always been a smooth character. Whether he’s on TV or on stage, his style is undeniable. Billy Dee Williams was one of the smoothest players to come out of the 1980’s. He brought that signature style to his character, Lando Calrissian, in Empire and Return of the Jedi. So it’s very fitting that Donald Glover will be the one to emulate William’s signature style for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Glover recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and commented on his character’s style:
“Lando’s always the best-dressed person on that set. And I don’t say that lightly. There’s a lot of cool costumes and a lot of cool clothing. He takes pride in the clothing. It makes things easier. When people see you and you’re debonair, they tend to want to give you stuff easier.”
Lando did bring a certain style and flair to the Star Wars universe and it looks like that trend will continue with Solo: A Star Wars Story. Donald Glover will be suiting up with some debonair style when he joins Han Solo, Chewie, and a few new faces when Solo hits theaters next month.
Directed by Ron Howard from a script written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released theaters May 25, 2018.

7 Comic Book Characters Who Have Lost An Eye
Everyone knows the famous expression “I can do that with one eye closed!” Well, for some people, it’s more than an expression — it’s a way of life. Everything from a paper airplane to a speck of dust can cause humans to lose an eye and sport an eye patch for the rest of their lives. Technology is improving to the point where glass eyes and prosthetics are looking more normal than ever before, and with google glasses who really cares how many eyes someone has as long as they are constantly ingesting information?
Comic book characters, even the helpless civilians, are used to bad things happening. Alien invasions or superhero wars seem to be a common occurrence in both the Marvel and DC Universe, but there’s something else that’s common too. It doesn’t matter what comic universe you look at, there is a character in every world who has lost an eye. At the end of the day, eye patches are too damn cool to only be used when a book features a pirate. Losing an eye may suck for these characters, but it usually boosts their aesthetic appeal and gives them a new emotional pain to latch onto as they move forward.
