‘The Mandalorian’ Star Sasha Banks Reveals If She’ll Be Back For Season 3

WWE superstar Sasha Banks revealed if she’ll be returning for The Mandalorian’s third season.

Sasha Banks went from a WWE arena to a galaxy far, far away in the second season of The Mandalorian. Banks starred as Koska Reeves, a warrior who joins Bo-Katan on her adventures throughout the galaxy. Banks’ warrior was an absolute standout but it looks like she won’t be popping up in the third season of the Star Wars series.

Carl Weathers Confirms ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3 Has Started Filming

The WWE legend told Bleacher Report that she won’t be returning to The Mandalorian. She appeared in the second season for two episodes alongside Bo-Katan.

“First of all, thanks for trying to get that out, but I’m not on the next season. But it was incredible being on The Mandalorian on Star Wars. To be on a franchise that is so huge and so loved, just look at the reception from fans outside of the WWE Universe. It was the best feeling of all time. The projection of that show was overwhelming. I legit felt like I was in a galaxy so far, far away. I felt like I was on a different planet.”

It’s unclear why Sasha Banks won’t be returning to the franchise considering the season finale of The Mandalorian saw Bo-Katan wanting to duke it out with The Mandalorian Djin Djarin himself. It’s unlikely that Banks’ Reeves would miss the battle. But then again, we don’t know if the third season picks up right where the second left off, or if there’s a substantial time jump.

Sasha Banks then went on to praise her time on the Star Wars, discussing how it helped shape her and allowed her a unique opportunity.

“It was something I will always take with me and I took so much of what I learned from acting with them and being with so many great stars to WWE. It really helped my confidence as well when I came back from doing The Mandalorian two years ago. It was such a learning curve and something I wasn’t expecting, but now I’m in this whole new Hollywood world and it’s going amazingly. I’m so excited for the fans, and I can’t wait for my fans to see what’s next.”

Seeing as Banks is still on the WWE roster, it isn’t hard to imagine that her upcoming fights don’t match up with The Mandalorian’s shooting schedule. Then again, Banks could also be keeping coy about her character in the hopes she doesn’t spoil anything.

The Movie: "Sin City"

Where You Can Stream It: Paramount+

The Pitch: Based on the highly stylized comic series by Frank Miller, "Sin City" is an exploration of the dark and violent Basin City. The film highlights the stories of three of the city's residents, all of whom are caught up in violent corruption, shady dealings, and trying to right their wrongs. As they spiral deeper and deeper into the city's underbelly, they are tried and tested by the ills of the world, their consciences, and their pride. Some come out on top, others don't. That's how the city goes. 

Why It's Essential Viewing

One of the most divisive things you can ever put to screen is an adaptation of a book. Movies that have been derived from novels or short stories or comics or, really, any kind of literary source material will always be fighting to live in the shadow — or attempting to live up to the shadow — of their original counterparts. I don't even really need to start listing examples because god, there are so many, and you probably have already thought of your own examples from your own cinephilic oeuvre anyway. The point is, when a movie comes along that does the original work justice, it should be celebrated and revered for its successes.

This, my friends, is why I'm recommending the gritty and gory "Sin City" as your Saturday stream of choice. The 2005 noir thriller combines three of Miller's "Sin City" graphic novels — "That Yellow Bastard," "The Hard Goodbye," and "The Big Fat Kill" — into a dizzying, demented, and deeply enthralling anthology piece about some of the Basin City citizens and their messy, violent lives. If you're into a good noir, this is a great updated spin on the genre that is very much still its own creative operation. It definitely doesn't skew into the territory of other contemporary noirs, like, for example, the beloved Rian Johnson feature "Brick."

There's Nothing Quite Like Sin City

The two reasons for that, though, become pretty apparent once you dig into the film. First off, the visual stylings of this movie are simply unlike any other. Miller's drawing style is extremely singular and his "Sin City" drawings have, well, a vibe to them. There simply isn't anything like the visual world he created for this city and the people that inhabit it — so it was clearly the best choice for the book-to-screen transition for him to direct the film alongside Robert Rodriguez, who adapted the graphic novels for the screenplay. They made it a distinct point to capture Miller's drawing style as closely as possible for their visuals and it makes for such an engaging watch. Again, there is simply no other movie that looks like this. It's hard to keep your eyes off it.

But it isn't just the visuals that were impeccably adapted. The script is a near replica of the comics, woven together in a new way that seamlessly divides and conquers with each tale. They bleed together well, the mess and macabre dealings of the inventive stories and the specificity of the dialogue and the world-building — it's all just so intriguing. There's nothing I love more than specificity. It's what makes stories come alive, what makes them unique and special. It's how we can have so many stories about similar experiences and still have them feel fresh. There's nothing quite like "Sin City." I keep saying it, but it's true. It brings something unquantifiable to the noir space, something no other piece could bring — and it's a film everyone should see at least once.
