Lando is sexually fluid, he's attracted to men, women and droids.

Many people are already very angry at this decision since it's isn't enough and because it wasn't more explicitly shown on screen.




This adds layers of depth to the OT:

I always hate when people complain about that. Sometimes people don’t show their interests openly

Nothing screams "progressive" more than adding "progressive" bunch of **** to the character and never show it on screen.

I didn't notice that in the movies, only that he was flirty with Leia.

So anyway, back to the movie, not one that's worth rushing to the movies from the looks of the posts/'reviews

I don't think anyone should remotely care who Lando is attracted to.

I'm sure it's just my own bias speaking here, but I default to everyone just being bi until confirmed otherwise.

And Lando? That is a sexy sexy man.

and when the usual progressiveness isn't enough, you have to INVENT your own sub category. what do you call a lover of robots?

Maybe CYL? Cyborg lover?

Scarlet Witch?

Just kidding, TV Tropes says it's called Robosexual

And it's kind of a thing that's been around for ever.

if this is a comics reference, maybe i don't want to know...if it's a movies reference, no spoilers, i havn't seen war yet


I'm wondering just how stupid disney can get before even the casuals notice what they are doing and start to revolt. they just wrecked the smoothest ladies man ever created. which, of course, was probably the regime's reason.

I really do hope Solo Bombs spectacularly. the first time critics and fans agree on something.
All is forgiven George. We didn't know how good we had it. we where hoping for a kevin feige. instead we got a paul feig.

How is Lando less of a ladies man because of this revelation?
If anything this just makes him hotter in my eyes.

Lando, the one man in the universe who can charm his way into anyone's pants.

I could be off base, but I fully expect "Solo" to be ridiculously... OK. Like, super... average. Competently filmed and edited, perfectly watchable but never reaching heights higher than... "that was alright." Like, I'll probably leave the theater, shrug, and go, "That wasn't bad," and will probably never have an urge to see it ever again.

It isn't going to redeem any goodwill lost from TLJ, won't supercharge a "Solo" trilogy (and why is that even on the table?), it won't do much of anything.

Like almost every other movie besides a marvel movie for me out of the last ten years of theater. nothing wows me. nothing grabs me. nothing really says, I need to buy that right now... and it's not just getting older. the magic is missing from hollywood these days. and they wonder why they are doing so bad.

That's because you said you're depressed. It's a fact that depressed people can't find joy in things. You sound like you don't like anything these days.

I personally just go with "everyone is Asexual unless the plot demands it" type of guy.

You know the norm is just to assume everyone is straight until the person says otherwise. It's the same in real life, I don't go around assume everyones sexual identity is anything other than straight unless they say so.

You've stumbled upon the exact reason why I assume everyone is bi, Cubed.
Well done.

I was born in the 80's, and I know you were born some decades before, so we know this is the norm for us old middle age people.
