‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Video Shows Moses Ingram Training With Darth Vader

Published

on

A new video from behind the scenes of the Disney Plus Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi shows Reva actress Moses Ingram in lightsaber training with a fully-suited Darth Vader.

Obi-Wan Kenobi introduced Moses Ingram as Reva, the Third Sister of the Empire’s Jedi-hunting Inquisitorius. While Darth Vader loomed constantly over Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan and the events of the series, Reva was his most ardent agent in the hunt for Kenobi. In a shocking twist, however, it was revealed that Reva was not serving Vader at all, but plotting to turn against him, using Obi-Wan as bait. When the moment of confrontation came, Vader easily overpowered her in a dazzling duel, which saw Vader dodging Reva’s blows without even raising a weapon against her at first.

In a behind-the-scenes video that has been shared online, Moses Ingram can be seen in her full Inquisitor gear taking on Hayden Christensen’s unarmed Darth Vader, who dodges her blows and rehearses his Force-powered deflections. The final version of the fight appears in Part V of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The video demonstrates the hard work and dedicated practice that goes into bringing a fight like the one between Darth Vader and Reva to life. The moves require a lot of energy and some surprisingly precise movements from Hayden Christensen in that cumbersome Darth Vader suit. Check out the video below:

All that training definitely paid off. The duel between Darth Vader and Reva, which eventually sees Vader separating Reva’s double-ended lightsaber and using one of the blades against her himself, is one of Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s most jaw-dropping moments.

DC’s ‘Strange Adventures’ joins ‘Batgirl’ in the HBO Max cancellation frenzy

DC’s ‘Strange Adventures’ joins ‘Batgirl’ in the HBO Max cancellation frenzy

The list of DC properties getting the axe over at HBO Max continues to grow, with Strange Adventures being the latest casualty.

The show was supposed to be an anthology series that featured some of DC’s lesser known characters. Clerks filmmaker Kevin Smith, who was supposed to direct and co-write an episode, confirmed the decision on his podcast Hollywood Babble-On.

Smith put the show’s axing in the same vein as Warner Bros. Discovery’s cancelling of the Batgirl movie, which already cost the studio an estimated $90 million. Strange Adventures actually never made it that far, however, and was axed before the merger became final.

The episode Smith was writing was supposed to be a collaboration with Supergirl writer Eric Carrasco. It would have featured both Jimmy Olsen from the Superman universe, and villain Bizarro. The plan was to get Nicholas Cage to play Bizzarro.

Smith and Cage actually have a pretty good history together, as they were both at one point in the ’90s attached to the Tim Burton-led Superman Lives – something that ultimately never happened but did result in a documentary called The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

“[Dropping Strange Adventures] kind of made sense to me — nobody necessarily knows these characters, and it sounded like an expensive show,” Smith said. Strange Adventures was going to cost between $16 and $20 million per episode, and was going to be produced by Berlanti Productions. That company is also handling another DC property that is so far on track – Green Lantern.

Berlanti also handles the TV version of The Flash, season three of Superman & Lois, and Gotham Knights over at The CW. Those are all moving ahead as planned.

Strange Adventures was supposed to be “our biggest DC show ever made,” Smith said. He also shared that even if it won’t end up over at HBO Max, the property could come out in another medium.

“Don’t feel bad for me, I got paid. We’re talking about taking it over to DC and doing it as a comic book, because we f***ing took the time to write the script. Might as well hand it to an artist and let them draw it.”

He also said getting rid of Batgirl was a bad idea: “It’s an incredibly bad look to cancel the Latina Batgirl movie. I don’t give a sh*t if the movie was absolute fucking dog sh*t — I guarantee you that it wasn’t. I love all the CW shows, but the CW shows show their budgetary constraints. They said Batgirl looked too cheap because it was a $90 million movie. How do you make a cheap-looking $90 million movie? If it looked slightly better than an episode of Arrow then why couldn’t we see that?”
