Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett in Star Wars spin-off?

Okay, this sounds like a big nerd’s dream, but one can hope, right? It’s rumored that the Star Wars spin-off film by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) is going to feature Boba Fett. Now we have another rumor coming from iKwiz saying that Michael Fassbender is going to play the bounty hunter.

Yeah, it sounds too good to be true. Since we already know that Boba Fett is the clone son of Jango Fett, how are they going to explain his look and accent? According to the site’s source, Boba Fett “is a mantle. The name, the ship and the armor gets passed down to a successor. That’s how he is brought back for the films and explains the character for later stories.”

Apparently Jango Fett couldn’t pass the mantle of his name down to his son.

Here’s what the source had to say about Michael Fassbender as Boba Fett.

“Fett fans are in for a few surprises. They [Disney] get the cult status of the character, so you’re going to see more Boba Fett in the future. Michael Fassbender is the frontrunner to be Boba Fett, fact!”

Even though it may or may not be true, it’s still fun to speculate. Would you like to see Boba Fett passing on his name to another? Do you you think Fassbender would be a good Boba Fett?

The Star Wars spin-off is expected to hit theaters on December 16, 2016.
