Thanks to Empire, we have a new photo to share with you from Solo: A Star Wars Story featuring Paul Bettany as the main villain in the story Dryden Vos. He is described as “a facially-scarred ‘big-shot’ criminal overlord who recruits a crew of reprobates for a heist.” The character was originally supposed to be played by Michael K. Williams back when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were directing, but when the actor couldn’t come back for reshoots, Howard decided to replace him with Bettany.
Even though it is cool to get a good look at Bettany character, the most interesting part is what we are seeing in the background. In the first photo that Ron Howard shared of Bettany’s character, fans saw a shape in the background that looked like Boba Fett’s helmet, well, this new image shows that it belongs to a whole new Mandalorian character.
It’s clearly not Boba Fett because the suit of Mandalorian armor has a very different style. This is most likely a character who is working for Vos. But, there is always the chance that could just be a suit of armor on display in the background that Vos may actually wear himself in the movie at some point. Look over the photo and let us know what you think!
We’ll find out how this whole thing comes into play in the story when the film is released on May 25th!
