Paul Bettany Compares ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ & ‘Avengers’ Secrecy

Solo A Star Wars Story Dryden Vos Paul BettanyFor Star Wars fans, there is no greater feeling than to be apart of a Star Wars film. However, it could definitely be challenging when dealing with the secrecy that the ongoing saga expects from its crew. In a recent interview with SYFY WIRE, Paul Bettany opened up about the precautions Star Wars takes to keep the film under wraps.

“They’re so careful. You’re dressed and undressed there, you can’t even take a photograph if you wanted to take a photograph of yourself. There’s somebody with you when you’re getting into all of those costumes and there’s somebody with you when you walk on to set. You’re never alone. I’d love to have stolen my [character’s] weapons, but I didn’t get a chance.”

Bettany claims Infinity War is far more strict than their Disney-owned counterpart:

“That stuff is madness. There was one script on one locked iPad. They wrote fake scenes and nobody had read the script.”

It makes sense, being that their was so much more speculation compared to Solo. The secrecy is understood, being that it makes for the best movie experience.  Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters next Friday.

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo along with Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. The cast also includes Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Paul Bettany, and Ian Kenny. Here’s the official synopsis:

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.


Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 11

Star Wars logoStar Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
