Say hello to Transformers: The Last Knight’s newest combiner. Helen Mirren is starring in a new supernatural thriller... about a weapons manufacturer. There’s good news for Legion fans. Plus, new clips from Power Rangers and The Originals, and a new trailer for the Flash/Supergirl crossover. Behold, Spoilers!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Making Star Wars has a small but intriguing detail about Phasma’s presence in the film—not about what she’s up to, but what she’s going to be carrying. Apparently, the character has seemingly ditched her chrome stormtrooper rifle for something a little more up close and personal: a spear-like weapon.
The site further hints that some equivalent of the Royal Guards from Return of the Jedi will be in the movie, standing around Snoke—so maybe the weapon Phasma has is akin to that, and a bit more ornamental than practical. Hopefully she gets to do something with it this time around!
