Star Wars: Legacy comics get new life, hero in 2013

Star Wars Legacy 2013There’s been a flurry of pop-culture news to start the week off with a bang. Here are a few items that slipped through the cracks earlier today on Nerdvana:

There’s big news in the world of Star Wars comics. Dark Horse’s popular “Legacy” series will resume next year, and it will feature the exploits of Han Solo and Princess Leia’s great-granddaughter! Let the speculation commence on how this plays into the new sequel trilogy of films … Via Comic Book Resources

The sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man has a new cast member: 24-year-old Dane DeHaan will play Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s friend and the son of the Green Goblin. Entertainment Weekly says the Chronicle star’s casting was announced Monday by director Marc Webb on Twitter.

Star Wars: Battlefront III maybe the ultimate in vaporware — never officially announced, it may not even have existed. But a claim last week that it was “99% complete” when scrubbed has sparked a response this week from an anonymous LucasArts developer that alleges all sorts of shenanigans akin to a “Ponzi scheme” involving the juggling of project resources to benefit other games under development. It all sounds very similar to what happened at Arizona’s own questionable video game development company, Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, and its repeated failure with another sci-fi franchise, Stargate.
