Ahmed Best, the actor who famously played Jar Jar Binks in George Lucas’ 1999 Star Wars prequel “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace”, sent out a Tweet asking if there would be interest in a one man show from him, as next year would be the twenty year anniversary of him taking the role. The photo accompanying the Tweet showed Best looking over the ocean while holding his son, and the Tweet revealed that this is the bridge Ahmed Best came very closely to killing himself from.
20 years next year I faced a media backlash that still affects my career today. This was the place I almost ended my life. It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival. Would this be a good story for my solo show? Lemme know. pic.twitter.com/NvVnImoJ7N

The first real film based on a Marvel/DC character was 1966’s Batman: The Movie, starring Adam West’s campy version of the Caped Crusader. In the ‘40s and ‘50s, Batman, Superman, Captain Marvel (now known as Shazam), and Captain America all had weekly, live-action serials shown in theaters, while the first Zorro movie premiered in 1920. But the first movie superhero came out even before that, in 1916—in an almost-forgotten serial film starring an equally forgotten hero: Judex.

In the wake of the disappointing launch of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’, Lucasfilm has put plans for more ‘A Star Wars Story’ spinoffs on hold, including the fan anticipated Obi-Wan film, and is instead focusing on ‘Episode IX’ and crafting a new trilogy.
