‘Guide of Boba Fett’ Introduces Black Krrsantan, a Wookiee Bounty Hunter Straight From Marvel’s Comics

0


Thought whenever you have been turning on The Guide of Boba Fett you have been watching a Star Wars present? Shock! Even the galaxy far, distant can’t escape the gravitational pull of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)… Or no less than the comics that spawned the MCU. And in Episode 2 of the collection, we briefly met a personality straight out of Marvel’s Star Wars comics: Black Krrsantan, a Wookiee bounty hunter extra harmful than Chewbacca — to not point out the star of the present himself, Boba Fett.

First launched in 2015’s Star Wars #15, written by Jason Aaron with artwork by Mike Mayhew, Black Krrsantan immediately gained a faithful cult following for apparent causes. He’s a Wookiee, initially, and the bushy, indignant Star Wars race has all the time been a fan favourite. However greater than that, his black fur, scarred eye, spiked pauldron armor, and simply his complete look made Black Krrsantan immediately iconic.

Since then, he’s had dozens of appearances in Marvel’s Star Wars comics, working for Jabba the Hutt as a bounty hunter, tussling with Obi-Wan Kenobi throughout his first few years hiding out on Tatooine, and even kidnapping Luke Skywalker’s uncle, Owen Lars. Later, he labored for none apart from Darth Vader, earlier than teaming up with one other comedian fan-favorite character who has but to make a live-action look: Physician Aphra.

Extra on that in a second, however in case you missed his look on The Guide of Boba Fett Episode 2 (and the way might you? He’s fairly imposing), Black Krrsantan confirmed up within the retinue of The Twins, two Hutts trying to lay declare to the felony empire left by Jabba the Hutt after he died in Return of the Jedi. Within the transient scene in Mos Espa, The Twins carry out Black Krrsantan to intimidate Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison), however it doesn’t work… The previous bounty hunter stands robust in opposition to the party-loving Twins, they usually — for the second — again down, promising to choose up with him and problem his personal declare on Jabba’s empire as some later time.

The majority of the episode is spent on a Star Wars infused Dances with Wolves riff, however the scene with the Twins, and Black Krrsantan, is definitely probably the most attention-grabbing factor within the episode. It additionally definitely tees up a doubtlessly killer combat between Boba and the Wookiee, or doubtlessly Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and Black Krrsantan. Both approach, needs to be fairly cool.

Essentially the most attention-grabbing potential tease right here, although, is the concept a few of Black Krrsantan’s Marvel Comics compatriots would possibly make their approach into reside motion, as nicely. This isn’t the primary time characters from different Star Wars media have popped up on the Disney+ exhibits, most notably Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant) on The Mandalorian Season 2, who was first launched in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath collection of novels. However Black Krrsantan and the crew he very tentatively interacted with are so, very, very cool. They embrace evil, murderous variations of C-3P0 and R2-D2 named 0-0-0 (aka Triple Zero) and BT-1; and Physician Aphra, form of an Indiana Jones sort character with virtually no ethical compass.

When it comes to timeline, it’s doable they may present up, based mostly on this Black Krrsantan look… The Star Wars comics the place Black Krrsantan has appeared largely happen within the interval between 0 ABY (After Battle of Yavin, aka the climactic combat in 1977’s Star Wars) and 4 ABY, and Guide of Boba Fett takes place round 9 ABY. But additionally, Black Krrsantan by no means actually preferred any of them, they usually all tried to kill one another a number of instances — so it’s not like he would name his “associates” to assist with their potential Fett downside. Extra seemingly, that is only a enjoyable introduction of a personality with a killer look into reside motion; and given Black Krrsantan beforehand labored for Jabba, it is smart he would switch over to working for The Twins.

On the very least, given Boba dismissively refers to Black Krrsantan as a “gladiator,” it’s clear he’s underestimating how harmful Black Krrsantan actually is… One thing he’ll certainly uncover in upcoming episodes.
