    After TROS, if RJ reveals that he is off Star Wars due to scheduling conflicts, what will really piss me off, is those that will all of a sudden claim that it was an OPEN SECRET all along.

    We all know LFL loves RJ, because they gave him an entire trilogy before the release of TLJ.
    After the release of TLJ, would it be wise for another RJ Star Wars film no matter how good it could be?
    Now be advised, I would not own a copy of TLJ if I hated the film. I thoroughly enjoyed TLJ. I was the last one in the theater
    enjoying the John William's score when the film ended. I have a copy of the novelization, I have a copy of the comic book adaptation,
    I own the soundtrack, I own the Art of TLJ, I collect the Toys, Legos, model kits, etc.

    I just don't believe he is still on the project even though LFL has confirmed he is still on it.

    I was highly disappointed when Ben Affleck revealed that he was no longer Batman. He played along until after the overwhelming failure of Justice League.

    Affleck played ball and I believe RJ is doing the same thing. I hope I'm wrong. I would like to see what RJ can do with a clean slate.

    But Affleck was still actively doing Batman stuff. It's not an apples to apples thing.
    If he came out right away and admitted he wasn't doing Batman anymore, Justice League somehow does worse. If that's even possible.

    RJ and LFL have no real reason right now to drag out him being off the project. He's not actively promoting TLJ. He's not promoting TROS. He's entirely unaffiliated with LFL except for this project.

    You can correct me if I'm wrong but I feel like Affleck didn't want to do it anymore and was actively trying to get out of it. Unless the abuse he's gotten has truly got to him, I get the sense that Rian Johnson still wants to make the films. That's why the rumor about him choosing to leave seemed like the least likely thing to occur, and it seems to me that if it doesn't happen it will be because of Disney and/or Lucasfilm pulling the plug and not him.

    I just can't imagine many people wanting to get involved in future Star Wars projects with this level of pettiness. These losers are now brigading Knives Out on IMDb.
