Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight

Christian Bale recently appeared on the Happy Sad Confused podcast and dropped some interesting information regarding Solo: A Star Wars Story. According to the Batman Begins actor, he was up for the role of Han Solo’s mentor, which ultimately went to Woody Harrelson.

“Yes, [it was] very tempting. I not only love the films going back to my childhood but also have a very long relationship with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall because they did Empire of the Sun many years back. There was discussion, [and] I hope there will be future discussions.”

The “future discussions” he refers to could bear fruit. Christian Bale is a big fan of the Star Wars films, and admits to still having the Millennium Falcon and an AT-AT in his personal collection.

Denny’s is preparing to rollout the marketing machine for Solo: A Star Wars Story, by releasing a new commercial featuring collectible trading cards based off of the film. The commercial itself features kids as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian playing some sort of card game (Sabaac?) in a cantina most likely similar to something featured in the film. Chewbacca makes an appearance, and a load of new aliens as well.

The trading cards give us a good look at the characters of Therm Scissorpunch, Val, Han Solo, Moloch, Chewbacca, Qi’Ra, Mudtrooper, and Argus “Six Eyes” Panox.

Check out the eight cards from various Instagram users below.
