One of the more interesting scenes in The Force Awakens is Rey’s vision. For years I have been discovering new, exciting things in that one scene but one of the elements to that part that has always fascinated me are the Knights of Ren.
They’ve only made a single, brief appearance in that temporary moment in the movie but they have captured the attention of Star Wars fan all over the world. Now, with Episode IX filming and leaks arriving on the web of Adam Driver filming heavy action scenes with people wielding spears and axes (sounds like the Knights of Ren to me) it’s pretty obvious that we will be getting a major introduction to the shady group sooner rather than later. But here’s the question; are they going to be Force-sensitive?

Infinity War ended with quite a shocking conclusion as Thanos managed to obtain all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of the universe (emphasis on half of the universe.) I was of course shocked to see some of my favorite heroes turn into brown ash such as Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, etc. but recently I’ve begun to wonder who else may have been wiped from existence after the terrible event. So, I’m going to share with you all of the other characters that might have disappeared as well. Enjoy!
Wong made a brief appearance in Infinity War where he fought alongside Iron Man and Doctor Strange against two of Thanos’s children. He, of course, survived that encounter but can we be sure that he survived the snap? Nothing is certain.

If you didn’t know (’cause I just found out yesterday evening) DC Comics is working on bringing a new Green Lantern movie to theaters in 2020 which would be its nine year rebirth after the incredible DC Comics flop version of Green Lantern seven years ago which starred Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds, however, teamed up with Marvel to play the role of Deadpool and that would turn out to be a SERIOUS upgrade. But, as the newest Green Lantern film starts getting ready for production the casting ballot is out and it seems that Tom Cruise may become the man for the job.
Armie Hammer, who you may know for his role in the Oscar-nominated Call Me By Your Name, is supposedly in the running to play the role of Green Lantern in this upcoming superhero revival but it’s been reported that the production company wants a big name actor to potentially play Green Lantern. And that’s where Tom Cruise comes in.
He has been approached about the rumor and he says he will gladly take on the role, on one condition which is that he doesn’t want Green Lantern to die in the movie. If they don’t kill off Green Lantern then he really may take the role! Can you imagine that? Tom Cruise taking his resumé to the next level by playing a DC Comics superhero? That sounds kind of awesome but it could also be a tad bit ridiculous at the same time.
Marvel has been geniuses behind their casting for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Tom Holland as Spider-Man. The list goes on and on. DC Comics, however, hasn’t made the best casting decisions except to cast Henry Cavill as Superman (he truly looks like Superman) and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Tom Cruise as Green Lantern could be a really awesome decision or a really bad one at the same time.
And to validate that this may actually happen the director for the past few Mission: Impossible movies, Christopher Mcquarrie, has been in talks with the production of the Green Lantern movie. So, yeah, we may really see Tom Cruise become a superhero within the next couple of years. Wow!
How does this news sound to you? Would you like to see Tom Cruise play Green Lantern or do you think that would be a bad idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

After the final season of Star Wars: Rebels ended earlier this year people began to wonder what the next Star Wars cartoon would be. Well, the animated series is called Star Wars: Resistance and it will focus on a young pilot named Kazuda Xiono who works as a spy for the Resistance. This cartoon will feature Poe Dameron, voiced by the actual Oscar Isaac, Captain Phasma, voiced by Gwendoline Christie, and everyone’s favorite droid, BB-8. Here’s the trailer.
What I like about this trailer are two things. One; I love the animation. It’s different and yet it’s just as detailed and concise as The Clone Wars cartoons. And the second thing I’m liking about this trailer is that it isn’t really showing anything.
This cartoon is interesting because it’s showing the Resistance shortly before the events of The Force Awakens which is really exciting. That means we’ll see characters we know plus maybe some plot points that’ll be elaborated further on in this animated series.
The cartoon will have an hour long premiere on the Disney channel on October 7. I’m totally going to watch it and share with you my reviews of the first couple of episodes.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force (and the Resistance) be with you. 🙂
For the past two Star Wars movies in this current trilogy rumors have circulated that Anakin Skywalker would make an appearance in the films. In The Force Awakens they went far enough to create concept art showcasing Anakin Skywalker who would have appeared in Rey’s vision. He, unfortunately, didn’t make it into the end product of the film.
In The Last Jedi it was rumored that Rey would experience in one of her Force-training exercises a vision where one of the sea monsters (that Luke ended up milking) was living in a cave and it would transform into Anakin Skywalker. (That sounds reminiscent of Luke’s vision in the cave on Dagobah.) That also didn’t end up happening.
That rumor from The Last Jedi seemed all the more palpable because Hayden Christensen showed up at some Star Wars conventions last year, which he has’t done in a while.
No rumors have started circulating about Anakin making an appearance in Episode IX but if this is supposedly the Skywalker saga finale shouldn’t he be in it in some form or another? It’s already rumored that Darth Vader is going to make a cameo appearance so maybe he won’t show up after all.
Do I think he should be in the movie? Yeah, why not? I would love to see a Force Ghost Anakin Skywalker talk a little bit of sense into his deranged grandson, Ben Solo. I think it would be positively awesome. And one thing J.J Abrams knows how to do is to deliver a lot of fan-service moments that’ll make us all very, very happy.
What do yo think? Do you think Anakin should return in Episode IX or should he remain absent? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
For a long while I couldn’t figure out which moments in Avengers: Infinity War I loved the most because there are so many incredibly AWESOME parts in this movie that it’s hard to decide. But after seeing this film over ten times now I feel that I finally have distinguished the moments that make the happiest in this superb superhero flick. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!
1. Iron Man vs. Thanos
Tony Stark has feared the arrival of Thanos for years. He’s gone through PTSD after the Battle of New York, he made Ultron because he wanted to create a defense mechanism that would help protect the world from Thanos’s eventual arrival, and finally, in Infinity War, these two characters that have known of each other from across the cosmos have themselves a one-on-one duel. It’s awesome!
Iron Man gets in quite a few licks with that incredible nanotech suit of his but at the end of the day Thanos is truly the most powerful villain in the universe and that becomes quickly obvious as he defeats Tony. This scene makes me so happy every time I watch it because to see these two goliaths on opposite sides fight each other is pretty cool indeed.

As you can probably tell from my blog I. Love. Star Wars! I’ve loved Star Wars ever since I was a baby girl and now, with Disney acquiring Lucasfilm, my love for the franchise has grown even more. And that has appeared to happen with my mother as well.
My mommy has never been an avid Star Wars fan. She knows about the movies but she has never really cared about the films or the characters…until recently. After The Force Awakens my mother has actually started to pay attention to these films and it’s kind of really awesome. So, today, I asked my mommy how she ranked the Star Wars films and I’m here to share her answer with you all. Enjoy!
1. The Force Awakens
My mommy isn’t a fan of going to the movie theaters because, in her words, it’s just an expensive nap but when we sent to see The Force Awakens for the first time my mommy enjoyed it so much that she was willing to watch it with us at the movie theaters again the very next day. Over the years my mother has watched the film numerous times and it has become her favorite Star Wars movie because it’s the only one she actually has seen all the way through more than once. She loves the characters, she loves the story, and it’s a good movie.
