I figured if the still-unconfirmed Kenobi movie deserves its own thread, so does this.
According to SWNN, Black Panther and Creed director Ryan Coogler is in early talks for a Solo followup/spinoff focused on Donald Glover’s Lando.
How do we feel about this? Personally, I was more interested in a Lando movie than a Han one from the start, so I’m totally on board. As for Coogler, I thought Black Panther’s screenplay was kind of eh, but I liked the direction and (most of) the performances. I thought Creed had some similar issues, but I also walked away from that one feeling good on the whole. I think it’ll really come down to who works on the script, but as of now I don’t see any reason to feel uneasy about Coogler.
EDIT: there’s a vague Solo spoiler in the article, so if you want to go in completely cold, skip the fourth paragraph.
