The rumor of the year is that Benedict Cumberbatch was going to be in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Now more updated news has seen the light of day, we have a few details on what role he will have in the film, thanks to Badass Digest.
According to the site, the actor is up for the role of a villain in the story, a Sith villain. It’s supposedly a major role that will continue throughout the whole new trilogy! As suspected, this is the reason the actor dropped out of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
Casting is not confirm because there is no official voice heard from us yet, There are representatives denying this story all over the place, but reps will deny and deny and deny until it’s true. The site reminds us all of the times Abrams and his reps were denying up and down that Khan was the villain in Star Trek… look how that turned out.
I really hope Benedict Cumberbatch play Sith Lord because he will be the badest and meanest sith there is !
