‘Solo: A Star Wars Story:’ Paul Bettany Reveals New Details On Dryden Vos

Paul Bettany Solo A Star Wars Story Ron HowardPaul Bettany, who plays the villain Dryden Voss in Solo: A Star Wars Story, took to Twitter to unveil some new details about his character.

The Avengers: Infinity War actor will make his next on-screen appearance a month after his endeavors with the Marvel blockbuster. Instead of being one of the good guys, he will be playing Dryden Vos, Solo’s villain. Bettany and the rest of the cast of the Star Wars spinoff took to Twitter for a Q&A with fans and some very interesting details arose.

You can check out the posts below from the Q&A:

Paul Bettany is a very talented actor and he had very little time to prepare for his role as Dryden Vos, the film’s main villain. The actor had begged director Ron Howard for a part in the film and when Michael K. Williams was unavailable for reshoots, Bettany got his wish. The actor had time to flip out for a short time before having to begin the process of becoming a Star Wars villain.

Paul Bettany dropped a serious surprise when he confirmed that Dryden’s marks on his face are not scars but part of his alien species. Those red marks are a result of that species becoming enraged or angry. From the trailers, it looks like the famed smuggler and his ragtag team might be the cause of Dryden’s red marked face.

Bettany seems like a really nice guy, so its hard to believe him when he says he has come in contact with a good number of shady individuals. Those ordeals have paid off for the Solo actor, as he channeled those interactions to assist him in becoming the gangster Dryden Voss. This definitely brings some realism to his character.

The Star Wars universe is filled with villains who become bigger fan favorites than the heroes of the stories. Bettany’s Dryden Voss will be a refreshing take as he seems much different than the likes of Kylo Ren, Phasma, or even Darth Vader. From what we have seen in the trailers, Vos looks similar to the likes of Boba Fett or Jabba the Hut. Fans will get to see exactly what Dryden Vos has in store for Han Solo and company when the film finally hits theaters.

5 Reasons To Be Excited (And 5 Reasons To Worry) About ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Solo A Star Wars StoryIt’s been roughly five months since The Last Jedi came out, which means it’s time for another Star Wars movie! The second anthology film that explores the Star Wars universe’s past, Solo follows a young Han Solo as he becomes a smuggler. Before he had the Millennium Falcon or considered Luke Skywalker one of his best friends, Han was still talking and blasting his away across the galaxy.

A new Star Wars film is typically a cause for celebration, but there’s something different about Solo. The posters and print material all look fun and stylized, but the actual trailer looks gray and unsatisfying. There are a lot of things propping this movie up, mainly that it is about Han Solo, arguably the most popular character in the entire franchise, but there are also a lot of things dragging it down. Hopefully Solo will kick butt, but without Harrison Ford at the center of the action, it’s hard to say!
