Sebastian Stan would be happy to play a young Luke Skywalker in Star Wars

A few months ago, the above fan art started circulating on social media, pointing out the rather uncanny resemblance between a young Mark Hamill on the left and Marvel star Sebastian Stan on the right.

Naturally this led to a lot of fan support for Stan to take on the role of a young Luke Skywalker, should Lucasfilm ever decide to include the character in one of its Star Wars Anthology movies. And, during a panel at the Rhode Island Comic Con, Stan has admitted that he’d jump at the opportunity should it come his way.

“I just want to say here that anytime anyone would like to call me and ask me about Luke Skywalker I’d be very happy,” said Stan, who will soon be seen reprising his role as the Winter Soldier in Avengers: Infinity War. Check out his comments here…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Promo Points To Luke’s Failed Student

“Kylo failed you. I won’t.”

Set aside all those preconceptions and fan theories of Rey wandering over the dark side for just a moment and feast your eyes on the ominous new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

First uncovered by ComicBook.com, it’s another tantalizing tease of the adventure to come, as Rey pledges her loyalty to Luke Skywalker aboard Ahch-To. Believed to be the site of the first Jedi Temple, the far-flung oceanic planet has been like a second home for Mark Hamill’s jaded Jedi, who clearly has his suspicions about Rey after he watched his Jedi Academy burn at the hands of Ben Solo (Aka Kylo Ren). “I’ve seen this raw strength once before. It didn’t scare me then…it does now.”

And though he has every right to be wary, up above you’ll see Daisy Ridley pledge her sword (or should that be lightsaber?

Boyega -- who plays Finn in the Star Wars series -- confirmed reports that Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy and English singer Gary Barlow were also "wrapped in Stormtroopers costumes" during filming.

According to THR, the scene in question saw the princes, Hardy and Barlow all standing guard around Boyega's character.

Which Old School X-Men Character Is Deadpool 2 Introducing?
20th Century Fox's Deadpool 2 is shaping up to be one of 2018's most-anticipated movies, with Ryan Reynolds returning as the Merc With the Mouth. One of the most intriguing new additions to the cast is Hunt For the Wilderpeople breakout star Julian Dennison. The young actor was announced through a social media photo where the actor was seen getting a piggy-back ride from the Merc With the Mouth, with both actors mocking a Star Wars: The Last Jedi photo where Daisy Ridley was getting a piggy-back ride from Mark Hamill. Julian Dennison's casting was announced back in late June, but his character was never confirmed, although a new report has seemingly revealed who he's playing.

The original Deadpool movie introduced one of the more obscure X-Men characters, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, with Brianna Hildenbrand delivering a breakthrough performance that ensured the character's return in the sequel. It seems that this

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Oscar Isaac stresses that Poe Dameron is not the next Han Solo

Star Wars: The Force Awakens caught a lot of flack for feeling like a retread of A New Hope. Poe Dameron, for example, is a handsome, wisecracking, crack shot pilot in a leather jacket. Sound familiar? Well, Poe Dameron actor Oscar Isaac wants to make clear that he doesn’t think that his character is a second-coming of Han Solo. Chatting with Esquire, the actor describes Rian Johnson’s desire to have Poe Dameron’s character serve the main plot in Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

“Well, there could be [an opening for a Han-like character], but I think what [The Last Jedi director] Rian [Johnson] did was make it less about filling a slot and more about what the story needs. The fact is now that the Resistance has been whittled to just a handful of people, they’re running for their lives, and Leia is grooming me — him — to be a leader of the Resistance, as opposed to a dashing,

Watch Mark Hamill Surprise Star Wars Fans at Disneyland
Mark Hamill can now check working at Disneyland off of his bucket list. The Star Wars icon stepped aboard the Star Tours attraction at Disneyland earlier this week and surprised fans. The 66-year old actor, who is famous worldwide for playing Luke Skywalker in the franchise, dropped in to the theme park and couldn't resist popping into the much-loved ride, which sees the audience virtually taken through the Star Wars universe. The incident was filmed and it shows off some pretty intense reactions, which you can see below.

A Disney cast member delayed the Star Tours ride momentarily for a, "special passenger," adding, "Oh, and the force is strong with this one." Mark Hamill then walked in to cheers and screams and what will probably end up as a famous meme reaction if it hasn't already.

Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi International Trailer Is All About Rey Vs. Kylo Ren

Sound the klaxon, folks, for Lucasfilm has officially kicked off the one-month countdown to Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s domestic release here in the States.

With crimson IMAX posters and electrifying TV spots already clogging up the pipes of social media, the Powers That Be have now peeled back the curtain on the latest (and fairly familiar) international trailer for The Last Jedi, which contains only a sliver of new footage.

Placing a particular emphasis on Rey and Kylo Ren, her sworn enemy, above you’ll see Daisy Ridley’s Force-user in the midst of her Jedi training, having made contact with the wayward Luke Skywalker at the tail-end of The Force Awakens. At the outset, Rey’s understanding of Luke is predetermined by tall tales – tales that champion Luke as leader of the Rebel Alliance, and the one responsible for overthrowing the Empire – but it seems Mark Hamill
