Is SOLO The Best Title for STAR WARS’ Young Han Solo Film?

Solo: A Star Wars Story. Is that a perfectly fine name, or did Lucasfilm drop the porg with the title of their Young Han Solo movie? We discussed that on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with whether or not The Big Bang Theory gave away a major Justice League spoiler, and how hyped we are to play Wolfenstein II after that new Nazi-killing trailer.

Joining host Jessica Chobot on today’s show were producers Kate Meyers and Derek Johnson, along with our director of development Brendon Schulze. They started with director Ron Howard’s big, huge, mega announcement that the young Han Solo movie has… perhaps the most obvious name ever. Is that actually okay, or a letdown? Are all the Star Wars standalone films going to get super simple names? And despite the title, are we looking forward to seeing Solo?

From there the show went to Spoilerville, after a Big Bang Theory sweepstakes might have accidentally given away something pretty big from Justice League. So if you want to avoid a potential leak from the film, skip past the photos of Sheldon.

Bazinga! Looks like the Green Lantern might show up. Is he really going to appear in the movie? Would that be the right move, or would it be better to introduce him in a standalone movie. And which Lantern do you hope eventually joins the team?

Finally, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus got a new trailer. What did we think of it? Are we looking forward to this followup? What about how Bethdesda has responded to the Alt-Right whiners who have been complaining (seriously) that freaking Nazis are the game’s bad guys? (2017 is exhausting.) Does the chance to virtually punch some Nazis make us more eager to play it?
