Paul Bettany is on a bit of role lately if you include his work in the latest Avengers film, but in a few weeks he'll introduce villain Dryden Vos to the Star Wars universe. We don't know all the details yet but it appears Vos will play the main antagonist opposite Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo in the new Star Wars standalone film, Solo: A Star Wars Story which hits theatres May 25th.
In a recent interview with TIME Magazine Bettany discussed all things Star Wars, including how he would describe this ruthless new gangster who will be added to the list of Star Wars bad guys...
"He’s a gangster, a godfather figure. He’s got a long reach, and he demands his tribute before any sort of business deal goes forward. And, of course, Han gets mixed up with him."
He was also asked who his favorite all-time Star Wars villain was (Darth Vader) and what ingredients go into making a classic bad guy...
"A good villain has to have a clear philosophy about how the universe operates. They can’t just be doing bad things because they’re evil. They have to be thinking, Everyone else is getting theirs, so why can’t I get mine?"
The interview appears in the May 14th issue of TIME Magazine but if you can't wait that long, check it out HERE.
Till next time...MTFBWY.
