Yesterday the Untitled Han Solo movie director, Ron Howard shared an interesting, yet familiar image from the set. Check that out below...
Ron tweeted this -
This isn't the first hint that the Empire are involved in the Han Solo story. Way back in the Phil Lord and Chris Miller days we saw an image of a "Scout Trooper" on some kind of speeder bike during filming. So its clear the Empire will have a presence of some kind in this film.
I noticed some outlets suggesting this could be a flash forward to the Death Star in same way during the events of the movie because the helmet shown in the image is synonymous with the Death Star Commander, but he is also known, in some circles as a Death Squad Commander, so this is most likely an Imperial installation somewhere and not the infamous space station.
It is very interesting that we might be seeing these guys up close in some action though. And I thought Han would like to "avoid any Imperial entanglements..." But I guess that's the real trick isn't it..?
What should we be reading into this image, if anything? Leave you thoughts in the comments below.
