Drama unfolded in Lucasfilm this week as the directors of the upcoming Han Solo stand alone film, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, were fired with only about three weeks left in principle filming. Then, it was announced that Ron Howard would step in and help finish this film. Reports indicated that the reason Lord and Miller were let go was because they were trying to add too much humor to the character of Han Solo. Howard is a seasoned veteran of movie direction and is expected to bring a calming presence to the project.
Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis has announced that he is retiring from acting. The 60-year old star had his spokeswoman Leslee Dart tell Variety, “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor.” No reasons were given for his decision. We at EYG want to thank Daniel Day-Lewis for his dedication and brilliance in every role he involved himself in.
The question about where the Venom stand alone movie will take place continues to bound around as Tom Holland indicated recently that Venom would “never” be in any of his MCU movies. Kevin Fiege has also made comments indicating that the decision about the Sony Spider-spinoffs are still up in the air.
And now, the reports indicate that the villain of that Venom stand alone movie is to be Carnage. Carnage is one of the most popular villains from the Spider-man rogue gallery and has a connection to the symbiote that turned Eddie Brock into Venom.
