What I'm saying is, for balance to be brought to the force, the good guys had to die.  This is morally grey in terms of the "means to an end" concept.

Take this with a huge grain of salt.

 

Word on the street is Benicio Del Toro is playing a villain named:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Vicrum Fett

Oh dear

Yep lol

Must... not... click... spoiler...
post #3806 of 3825

Honestly, how is that a spoiler?  Not that I don't get why you put it in spoiler-text, cuz I know how sensitive people are... but I just don't get how knowing that name could be considered a spoiler in any way.  Unless we think the existence of some-EU sounding character is going to be this huge reveal in the movie, which would be ridiculous.

Hahahaha!  That's delightful!

 

I don't think there's any way it's legit.  If his character's name isn't "Something Ren," I'll be shocked.  However, IF it were to be real, it might be an indication of something I've been hoping we might get to see: a villainous third party who isn't officially allied with the First Order/Knights of Ren.  Somebody with his own agenda acting as a foil for both Rey and Co. and Kylo Ren could be interesting.

Belloq, the more recent rumors about Del Toro's role have him being Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
some kind of criminal figure that runs a casino.

I can dig it, I just hope it's a different name!

I've heard that rumor in passing, too.  Seems potentially too small-scale and a waste of Del Toro's talents (a la his turn as The Collector in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY).  I'm hoping he's a character with edge and menace, and who factors into the storyline in a central way.

It's really fanfic-y.

Agreed.

I'm pretty sure that's from Mike Zeroh, who is a complete bullshit artist who no one should take seriously.

Is it worse than my fanfic name for a Jedi that I came up with as a student, pissed as a fart waiting in a queue for a donner kebab on naan bread? - Donneron Na'an.

This just in, Benicio is actually playing a character named Delorio Tora-Benice

post #3816 of 3825
Welp, based on that named....I'm certain the movie is gonna suck for me and I'm gonna hate it..
post #3817 of 3825

I think we're in the "opening shot of Luke's severed hand floating in space" phase of things here.

 

If not...well, then that sucks. That would be worse than just a non-entity like The Collector.

 

"Greetings. It is I, The Collector, physical embodiment of all mid-credits scenes. ... This has been the scene with I, The Collector. Farewell. Enjoy the rest of the movie."

The difference is, that was actually true at one point in development.

 

But this name "spoiler" comes from a guy who has been caught just making shit up for clickbait. Mike Zeroh is like the guy who claimed Luke was going to accidentally kill Han in TFA and Supershadow back in the days of the prequels. He created bogus press materials prior to TFA, made fake press materials saying that TLJ would be called "Tale of the Jedi Temple". Nothing from that source should be taken seriously - even another prequel debate is more worthwhile than talk about about anything from Zeroh.

post #3819 of 3825
I doubt that's his character's name.

But the other rumor about him could be right, if only because we got those set photos months and months ago that took place in that setting.
post #3820 of 3825

That's what you do to obtain semblance of credibility. Mix the real info with fake info!

post #3821 of 3825
For the record, I don't trust any rumors. But that just has a bit of support over fanwank last names.

I googled just to be sure and yup. Pretty funny that leaks have been so few and far between on Ep8 outside of location shooting in Ireland and Dubrovnik that even otherwise legitimate sites are running with Mike Zeroh's bs, gotta get those hits!

​Now can we please get back to arguing over whether or not The Last Jedi is plural?

I didn't think Gad would top the Dench video. I was so wrong. The last few seconds made me scream

Oh no it's an orgy!

Not a half-bad orgy...

If only Dench had stuck around.
