Star Wars: Director Ron Howard reveals Han Solo spin-off title as "Solo: A Star Wars Story"


Taking to Twitter itself to deliver a "special message" that reveals the official title of the next Star Wars spin-off movie, director Ron Howard has revealed that the untitled Han Solo film will be called "Solo: A Star Wars Story" - which continues the tradition started by 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and retains the name of the famous smuggler turned famed Rebel Alliance fighter of the original Star Wars Trilogy. Of course, "Solo" will be a prequel set in the early days of Han's career - and will be portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on May 2018.

Kotobukiya previews "Batman Rebirth" statue for May 2018


As one of the "new looks" that made its grand debut early last year, The "Batman Rebirth" suit is the new look that debuted just as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo ended their epic run on the main "Batman" title just before DC Entertainment introduced the "Rebirth" era of the DC Universe. Retaining the black and grey colors that The Dark Knight wears proudly, the suit was a minor yet sleek redesign of Bats usual appearance - now sporting a Bat symbol with gold linings in his chest, a black and gold utility belt that looked like it had "fangs", and finally the most identifiable change in having the inner portion of the cape colored purple - a direct homage to the "purple gloves" Batman wore during his first appearance in "Detective Comics #27".

Now Kotobukiya is set to immortalize the Bat's new look in the next ARTFX+ statue hitting next year! Following Superman and the Super Sons statues, Batman Rebirth is the next in line and is expected to come out on May 2018! Above is just one preview picture the company has released  of the impressively sculpted 1/10 scale statue. Check out more via Kotobukiya's Facebook page!
