The role of Dryden Vos was previously being played by another actor (I forgot his name) but after Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were booted from the production of the movie and when Ron Howard was brought on board they gave the role to Paul Bettany. Now this made me really excited because I love Paul Bettany as both Jarvis and Vision. For years I thought Iron Man had the coolest AI sidekick in Jarvis and then when he was brought to life through Vision I couldn’t have been more excited. And I know for a fact Paul Bettany is going to bring a compelling villain to the Star Wars universe that we’ve briefly seen before in Jabba the Hutt but to the next level.
We haven’t really been given a glimpse of the criminal underworld that is just as much a part of Star Wars as the concept of the Jedi and the Sith. In this hidden underworld are smugglers, bounty hunters, and gangsters, like Dryden Vos, who this movie will be introducing is to and I honestly couldn’t be more ready to see this film. Not only does he look really cool because of his scars but I love that LucasFilm is keeping his character throughout the marketing of Solo mysterious. That means I will be able to fully enjoy him without feeling like I’ve seen a whole lot of footage of him when I watch the film in theaters.
All in all, the countdown is growing less and less until the movie officially premieres in movie theaters around the country and I can’t wait to see it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day. May the Force be with you.
