Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

  1. Donald Glover, Solo: A Star Wars Story, 2017.Or as it worked out – Solo: A Star Wars Cock-Up.  Actor-producer Yahya Abdul-Mateen, O’Shea Jackson Jr and Adande ‘Swoozie’ Thorne also tested to succeeed Billy Dee Williams as Lando Clarissian.  Disney lost a bundle (a la Tron) and learned a lesson maybe:  ie  Disney may own it but it ain’t Marvel. Good sub-title would have been: Greed Doesn’t Pay.
  2. Winston Duke, Black Panther, 2017. He lost M’Baku at Marvel. But won the villainous Manta for his second movie, opposite Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, at DC.
