While exact details surround Crimson climb are currently unknown, including a release date and any plot information, Johnston has revealed the first look at the cover, which you can check out below.

Will Emilia Clarke return as Qi’ra?

While Clarke has yet to reprise her role in live-action, Qi’ra made a surprise appearance in the War of the bounty hunters comic crossover event in 2021, and later the Hidden Empire event. As Clarke told ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview at the time, seeing the character appear in a different context is profound.

“It means so much,” Clarke revealed at the time. “It means the absolute world. I know her backstory. I know her history. Maybe the movie didn’t go there, but it was such an honor and privilege to be a part of that universe as an actor. So then, to see the character actually being taken to the origin of everything – bringing it home to the family in that way – confirmed it in a way I didn’t expect to feel as moved as I did by that.

In War of the bounty hunters #1, it was revealed that Qi’ra is still directly linked to the crime syndicate Crimson Dawn, with whom she developed an alliance during the events of Solo. More than a decade after the events of the film, it’s clear that she’s still a central player in the organization – as well as still being close to Han Solo, who she grew up with on the streets of Corellia.
