LEAGUECAST #185 – Here’s Some Money, Go Direct A Star War


It’s follow-up week on the LeagueCast, as the crew discusses revelations, controversies, and new information pertaining to two big topics from last week’s show. Join Jeff, Adam, Shawn, and The Shmozz as they share their opinions on Ron Howard officially taking over as director on the young Han Solo film, the bombshell Hollywood Reporter article that details the behind-the-scenes strife that led to Lord & Miller’s firing, and the narrative that has grown out of the situation that paints Kathleen Kennedy and Disney as being closed off to creativity and new visions in the Star Wars universe. The League also revisits the Sony/Marvel Studios Spider-Man situation, as producer Amy Pascal retracted her comments regarding the Venom and Silver & Black films residing in the MCU alongside Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and talks about the possibility of future Spidey films becoming team-up movies with other Marvel characters. All this, plus headlines and the box office report with Shawn, weekly recommendations, and the usual tangents in the mighty League manner!

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
