Marvel Studios is getting ready to start filming the multiple new series for us to enjoy next year and one such series that’s been getting updated this past week because of its growing cast is Secret Invasion, the MCU series that will star Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn and will feature the iconic Secret Invasion storyline which focuses on the Skrull’s infiltration of Earth and their impersonation of some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

And now the highly-anticipated series is gaining a cast that is living up to the hype. Here are the A-list actors joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time.

Kingsley Ben-Adir just got a big push in entertainment with his portrayal of Malcolm X in One Night in Miami and now he’s joining Marvel as an unknown character. I actually hoped that he would be joining Marvel Studios and I’m so excited to see that he actually is.

What’s Your Favorite Qi’ra Look?

Qi’ra is one of the most fashionable characters in the recent Star Wars films, making her the perfect second character for this series. Enjoy!

The Correlia Outfit

Qi’ra appears in Solo: A Star Wars Story as an eighteen-year-old trying to make her way through the slums of Corellia. Living in the dank area run by Lady Proxima, fashion isn’t exactly a major thing, but somehow she manages to look good with a hodgepodge of styles. A bold red shirt, a fur-lined coat, a leather skirt, and boots make up this actually very fashionable outfit. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Qi’ra Look?

The First Teaser Poster for QI’RA Has Arrived!

As you may know, I’ve been sharing my fanfiction since January and once I started I haven’t been able to stop. I wrote My Version of the Last Jedi, Episode IX: The Chosen OneCaptain America: Secret War, and now I’m about to begin a new adventure. One following Qi’ra’s story directly after the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story. It’s simply titled: QI’RA.

As always, with my new fanfiction adventures, I like to share teaser posters in the same way movie studios release posters for their upcoming movies. And so, on this beautiful Wednesday, here’s the first teaser poster for QI’RA. Continue reading The First Teaser Poster for QI’RA Has Arrived!

Qi’Ra or Jyn Erso: Who’s Cooler?

In the past three years there have been two Star Wars Stories for me to enjoy. The first was Rogue One, a Star Wars film that highlighted the ugliness of war in the galaxy from a non Force-wielding perspective. And then Solo was a classic heist film done in a Star Wars fashion that was simply awesome to watch. Both films had compelling leading ladies who took charge when the moments arose and set their own stamp on the Star Wars franchise. But which of the two heroines were cooler? That’s what I’m here to find out. Enjoy!

Their Stories:

Qi’Ra, like Han, was an orphan living on the rough streets of Corellia hoping to one day escape the gang they worked for. Unfortunately Han escaped and Qi’Ra didn’t and was forced to work for the crime syndicate, Crimson Dawn for the rest of her life.

In Solo we see Qi’Ra’s many chances at redemption but she’s too far in to the criminal system. She’s made a name for herself in the criminal underworld and she wasn’t about to give that up, even for Han, the man she loved. But at the end of the day, he escaped to live his life while she remained on Corellia. You have to think that through those years she acquired some bitterness to her ex-boyfriend. It’s probably why she was able to make the decision to betray him so easily.

Qi’Ra has been through the wringer and I’m super interested in seeing where her story continues.

Jyn’s story is one of tragedy. She lost her mother when she was but a child. She was abandoned as a teenager by the only people she could call family; Saw Gerrera and his rebels. And, in an attempt to find out what the Empire was building, her only family member remaining, her father Galen Erso, was killed before her very eyes.

And yet through all of this sorrow she kept on fighting to the very end. That’s quite inspiring indeed.

Honestly, both of these women have compelling storylines that I would love to no more of. I have this category at a tie.

Qi’Ra or Lando: Who Should Have Their Own ‘Star Wars’ Story?

In the past week rumors have been circulating that Lucasfilm is putting a halt to the Star Wars stories and thankfully those wild rumors have been laid to rest, allowing me to continue to brainstorm about the characters in Star Wars who should have their own standalone films in the future. Solo definitely hinted at the possibility of a sequel but there also could be plenty of spin-offs stemming from the movie’s characters as it introduced us to characters who not only played impeccable roles in the film but also were surprisingly interesting at the same time. One of those brand new faces was Qi’Ra, a mysterious femme fatale with a dark secret. And then one of the more familiar faces belonged to Lando who became an instant fan favorite after Donald Glover’s suave rendition of the character. Between these two characters who brought such enjoyment to the film which should end up getting their own Star Wars story? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!

Qi’Ra, the Mysterious Femme Fatale

Qi’Ra is one of the characters I’m most excited for in Solo: A Star Wars Story because she is still such a mystery. She’s one of the most prominent characters in the movie and yet I still feel like I don’t know anything about her except her name…which is awesome. That means that her role in the film is being kept secret for a reason and that’s always encouraging. But what I do know about her is that she isn’t just a pretty face.

She has style, she has grace, but there’s also this subtle hint of deadliness about her as well. She’s just as much of a scoundrel as Han Solo and I think we’re going to discover that at times in this movie.

In Star Wars we’ve never really been introduced to a major female character like this before. There was Leia, the strong-willed princess, Padme, the authoritative Queen/Senator of Naboo, Rey, the powerful but benevolent Jedi, and Jyn Erso, the tenacious rebel who wasn’t going to allow the Empire dictate the future of the galaxy anymore. And now there’s Qi’Ra who I can’t decipher if she’s a hero or one of the characters in this movie that’s going to turn Han into the person who would rather be, well, Solo (with the exception of his best friend, Chewbacca).

But that’s super exciting though. You can’t make a franchise worth watching if all of the characters are practically the same. Thankfully I only have a few days to see just exactly what type of new leading lady she will be.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
