One thing we know for sure about the as-yet-untitled Han Solo movie is that…we don’t really know anything for sure.
Except for the fact that Spencer Wilding, who played Darth Vader in Star Wars: Rogue One, has just been cast in the film.
An eagle-eyed Reddit user has spotted news of Wilding’s cancellation of an appearance at a fan event in Kentucky. “Spencer Wilding will be unable to attend as he will be filming the newest film in the Star Wars Universe,” reads the announcement.
Now it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that the only Star Wars film currently shooting is the Han Solo project. But to complicate matters even further, this casting doesn’t mean we’ll definitely be seeing Vader in the Han Solo spin-off which now has Ron Howard at the helm.
Instead, it could be indicative of another weird and wonderful being immortalised in the Star Wars universe. In the past, Wilding has had roles playing beasts and monsters in Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and Guardians of the Galaxy, to name a few.
