The MCU seems to have having a good run. I'm getting a little burnt out on it myself but over 20 movies is nothing to scoff at. If this is half as successful as that then I'll be happy.Yeah, I'm a little worried about the QC on some of the upcoming shows. We'll of course have to see. Mandalorian was a very specific sort of success and is a very particular kind of show in a very particular kind of context. It's accessible to casual audiences (badass western space knight babysits adorable alien child) but it also has a lot of buzz because of the fan candy it is able to bring to the live action table for the first time. It doesn't take much talent on the scriptwriters part, simply drop a Thrawn here, a darksaber there, or grab a fan favorite character to pop in for a howdy do. This can only work for so long before people will intuit the trick and stop caring. Too much content might water down these moments. But who knows! Good writing is good writing and if they can nab inspired creators then we're in for a treat.
This is why I'd be fine with them recasting the character. I think she was fine as a secondary character, but as a lead, I'm not sure she's got the acting chops.I honestly don't know who at LFL thinks it's good idea to center a show around the Dune character, I don't know if I've ever seen some one that deliver such flat a performance. I get that she has her fans as a fighter turned actress but that doesn't mean she has what it takes to lead a cast, she gets by just fine as a secondary character for a reason. So surely more talented actors were also involved to round out the show.
I've heard he does NOT want the character to be recast and is not interested in the project unless Gina is a part of it. And we all know that's not happening so that's why I believe this show is done and something else will fill the slot.Now rumours say that Jon Favreau is not interested in working on the project without Cara Dune & he wants to recast the Character. This is making me rethink the situation & there is a way to do that, but it is bringing back a bad memory.
