So realistically - could Cassian Andor be in the movie?

    So ages back there were behind the scenes photos in the UK of Diego Luna being on-set, wearing rather military-style clothing (which to me looks too costume-like to be his own clothes), whilst as VanishingMode posted in the rumours thread, Diego's face lights up and actually trivially changes the subject when asked about appearing in Solo during a TV interview (1:37 in the follow clip: http://www.mtv.com/video-clips/3jxt8f/mtvnews-series-golden-globes-2017-diego-luna).

    So as a direct question to the people - do you feel Diego Luna was just visiting the set and just has a strange sense of fashion, or are we likely to see some backstory to the rebel who's been in this fight since he "WAS SIX YEARS OLD"?

    As an enormous fan of Rogue One, I'm certainly hoping so. As to whether his potential inclusion would survive the re-shoots, I obviously don't know. If he is, maybe it's perhaps just a tiny cameo, but even so I'd still be delighted and certainly hope Lucasfilm are wanting to tie their backstory movie characters and worlds together. So I for one would love it it if he is, and the two sources of evidence to me at the very least suggest so.

    Well that would be cool to see and nice way to tie RO and Solo together.

    Yes. And it would make plenty of sense given the background of the character being a less savory Rebellion hero.
    He wasn't always in the Rebellion either so....

    Maybe a run in with Han and Lando changes his mind...

    Don't hate his character but don't like it ethier. Still, if LFL is hoping 4 a MCU version of the GFFA, this is how u do it.

    For me, this is the only way to see Cassian Andor in another movie than RO - I think, later, in a few years, the actor will look too old to play a Cassian who is younger than in RO. And: While I hope that there will be no other appearance of a character from the episodes than the exepcted ones (Chewie, Lando, Jabba and one or another bounty hunter), I wouldn't have something against a cameo of a RO-character.

    I love the Cassian character, but I don't think that is Diego Luna in the leaked shot.

    The pic has a whiff of his Flatliners hair to it. Would be interesting though...

    I am with @TheBBP here, that is not Diego.

    When it comes to the character, he could appear easily but I feel, knowing Kasdan, this isn't going to happen. He will do his own thing, unless his son has some influence in adding connections.

    Love Cassian!!!

    However, don't think he will be in the movie.

    However however, how about a novel about Andor's backstory, how he got into the Rebel Special Forces, etc. Take my money right now for that.

    There was a Cassian and K2 comic. I have not read it so I don't know how deep it goes, but it at least gets into their history.

    That'd be dope. Especially if it was written by Alexander Freed. I find his backstory very interesting, like how he and his family was on the Seperatist side in the Clone Wars.

    Another note about that Daily Mail "Cassian" leak. He would have to be about a decade younger for this film. There he looks older than R1.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I've always thought he looked a bit 'off' in these photos and much fuller in the face (though I'd put a lot of that down to the lens zoom causing a stunting effect - Alden's photo makes his head look like a pumpkin and needs to be resized by about 90% width to look normal), and whilst I'm usually not naive enough to believe everything I read, especially from the Daily Mail when it comes to their sensationalised middle-class right-wing fear-mongering that's usually a glorified way of writing an article that effectively says "I'm not being racist, but...", I do admit I kind of (perhaps quite wrongly) assumed they'd at least have some basic idea of just who they were taking photographs of if they were going to name them in an article. So apologies if that's not him. I'd roll my eyes at an article of theirs stating "experts believe that muslims give you cancer" but did admittedly think they might know a bit more than me when it comes to the people they were taking photos of in their own vicinity while I'm hundreds of miles away at home, even if they do look a bit strange. After all, journalistic integrity and just knowing a person's name are two very different things haha. :confused:

    Diego Luna is a good actor. Seeing in the movie about Han would be great.

    I don't think that you had an ill intentions. Don't sweat it.
