Things We Saw Today: Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Jessica Henwick Joins Iron Fist
Jessica Henwick, known for her work on Game of Thrones and her role as X-Wing pilot Jess Pava in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has been cast as Colleen Wing in Marvel/Netflix’s Iron First. Overall, I’m very dubious about Iron Fist, particularly following the show’s decision to cast a white actor in the lead role, but I am really excited to see more of Henwick after first being introduced to her in The Force Awakens. Thoughts? (via Entertainment Weekly)
- Graphic designer Ricky Ma spent more than $50,000 over a year and a half designing a humanoid robot that looks uncannily like Scarlett Johansson. You can see his unsettling creation over on Mirror.
- As is their tradition, ThinkGeek brightened up this April Fools’ day with some gently humorous products! Their colossal Attack on Titan lawn ornament, Star Trek White Noise Sleep Machine, and SpaceX Vertical Landing Mentos & Diet Coke Rocket are all fake—for now, anyway—but as far as April Fools’ goes, they’re pretty damn great.
- The Mary Sue contributor Zack Budryk wrote a book! Judith is “a dark thriller about a group of women tired of waiting for the law to handle abusive men,” and available for preorder now. You can check out an excerpt or preorder your copy here.
- Hype for Preacher? You can watch a new teaser now over on Daily Dead.
I had to wait until today, but I’m super excited to announce this! pic.twitter.com/cuXQjDcDA5

Bruce Willis is ready to kick some Deadite-Weadite ass.
Well, that’s what we saw today, friends. Good luck out there with the rest of your April Fools’ Day.
