Han Solo screws up in a new clip from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Plus, what’s to come in the season finale of Arrow, and another wild Deadpool 2 promo. Spoilers, away!

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Fanthatracks reports that the long-rumored Obi-Wan Star Wars Story—allegedly directed by Stephen Daldry—has gone into pre-production (at least, specifically an art department has) at Pinewood Studios in the UK. Given that the film has still yet to be officially announced, take things with a pinch of salt, but the site reports Lucasfilm plans to film sometime in Spring next year, for a release in 2020.

Avengers 4

A rumor from MCU Cosmic claims Avengers 4 will feature scenes of Hawkeye in Japan hunting Skrulls disguised as members of the Yakuza. Given that the Skrulls are about to be introduced in Captain Marvel, an appearance isn’t out of the question in Avengers 4, but also take this one with a pinch of salt.

Supernatural

Showrunner Andrew Dabb spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Jensen Ackles’ new character.

The fun about Apocalypse World and these stories we’re telling is that sometimes the actors embrace other performances that maybe aren’t what they’re used to doing. Obviously after 13 years, Jensen’s very used to playing Dean and is amazing at it. In terms of who the character is, I will say that it’s a character that will be both unexpected and kind of a long time coming.
