Did Ron Howard share an image of Boba Fett in the Han Solo standalone movie?

September 19th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So Ron Howard, current director of the Han Solo standalone movie, has shared an image of actor Paul Bettany’s last day of filming on Twitter (full tweet below).

And that all seems pretty normal except eagle-eyed fans spotted an interesting detail in the background of the image (don’t we always?).

What detail? Do you see it? No… well, here:

See it now?

Yes, it looks like Boba Fett is standing in the background of the image… whatever that shoe is, it certainly looks like Fett – it even seem to have the aerial protruding form the side of the helmet.

Could it be? Could Fett be appearing in the movie? It would certainly make sense given that Solo and Fett are old enemies by the time we meet them in the original trilogy.

Although, it could also be simply that we’re seeing something that’s not there OR Howard could be trolling us.

What do you think? Personally, I reckon it’s not only possible but likely we’ll see Fett, at least in a cameo appearance…

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
