Stay Cool, Geek 177: Han Solo Enters an Asteroid Field

In which Kurt and Jahblahblahblahblah discuss the firing of Lord & Miller from the standalone Han Solo movie. What does this mean? Should we be concerned? What does this say about Kathleen Kennedy? And what do we think of the Ron Howard hiring? 

The guys get fairly passionate about all things happening in the Star Wars cinematic universe, all while trying to stay cool.

This leads to a larger discussion of Marvel films, branded content, and utilizing someone's specific creative talent while still keeping pieces in line with a company's stated goals and themes.

Finally, we take about the Black Panther trailer, the Inhumans trailer, Transformers, and the Universal Dark Universe.
