Boba Fett continues to climb the brackets in the This Is Madness: Star Wars Character Tournament, after defeating Jango Fett in the second round by 70 percent. This was yet another strong victory, on the tails of a 94 percent victory over Greedo in the first week.

Boba Fett’s next battle is against General Grievous, who has carved his way through his own respected opponents with strong numbers. I have little doubt Boba Fett will pull the win against Grievous – but there’s always room for upsets – just look at the surprising outcome of Luke Skywalker vs. Obi Wan Kenobi, and the recent defeat of last year’s champion, Yoda.

If proving victorious, Boba Fett’s fourth round opponent is still on the bubble. Darth Vader defeated Emperor Palpatine in round two by 82 percent, and he’ll now face either Jabba the Hutt or Pre Vizsla – with 12 hours remaining, Jabba is pulling the win by nearly half the votes. I’d like to see Vizsla take out the crimelord, but it’s still too early to tell.

I seriously doubt either Jabba or Pre Vizsla would defeat Darth Vader, meaning we may see a rematch between Boba Fett and Darth Vader in the semi-finals. This would then be a rematch to last year’s matchup that knocked out Boba Fett from the championship. Continue to cast your votes for #TeamBoba – with your support, we can go all the way!

In his toughest match since the Star Wars Character Tournament began, Boba Fett defeated Emperor Palpatine last night by 53 percent. This victory won Boba Fett a seat in the final four of the bracket tourney and pitting him against Darth Vader in today’s match-up.

So far, Boba Fett has defeated a fellow bounty hunter, his father and a Sith Lord. But can he stand up against the fallen Jedi – Darth Vader? It will surely be a close match-up – one in which we saw in the pages of “Enemy of the Empire.”

In that comic, Boba Fett used his clever tactics to gain an upper hand against Vader. If he pulls a win tonight, he’ll face either R2-D2 or Yoda in the final battle to determine the champion.

Let’s continue to rally and campaign for a win for #TeamBoba. We are so close to a final victory!

The Associate Press interviewed Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, about his reputation as a “franchise savior.” After breathing new life into film franchises like Fast & Furious, G.I. Joe and The Mummy, studio officials said they see Johnson as a sure way to attract movie goers.

Just for fun – the interviewer tossed other franchises at Johnson, asking him (tongue-in-cheek) how he’d rejuvenate or reboot the films. Along with franchises like James Bond, Twilight and Shrek – Johnson joked about what role he’d play in a Star Wars movie.

“That could happen. I only say that because my love for the mythology of Star Wars… Boba Fett could work. But it can’t be the Boba Fett as we know. We can’t hide my magic (gestures to his face). This is magic, my friend (laughs). There’s got to be a cross between a Sith and a Jedi. What is that? Don’t know what that is yet. We’ve got to create it.”

Of course, Johnson is only having fun – not being serious. But, it’s cool hearing that he’s not only a Star Wars fan – but a member of #TeamBoba.

Boba Fett reached the final eight in the Star Wars Character Tournament, but today’s battle against Emperor Palpatine decides his fate in this tourney! Lets hope fans come in droves to vote #TeamBoba and push him into the Final Four!
