There have been a ton of nice cameos in Star Wars: The Drive Awakens and heading into Star Wars eight, that’s undoubtedly one thing followers can sit up for within the subsequent installment of the Star Wars saga. Whereas it looks as if director Rian Johnson did a reasonably good job of maintaining these secret cameos beneath wraps, there have been persistent rumors that Mad Max: Fury Street star Tom Hardy will likely be taking part in a Stormtrooper within the film. Now he has addressed the rumors head on.
In a latest interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy was selling his new present Taboo however the topic of Star Wars eight got here up and when it did, issues acquired fascinating. The actor did not affirm the rumors, however on the identical time, he completely did not deny them and undoubtedly added some gasoline to the hearth. Here’s what he needed to say about it.
“I do not know if I may even say that. The place did you hear that?_… _Ah, the Web is a wonderful net of deceit and misinformation, is not it? It might be, could not it?”
There was an nearly unrelenting cloud of secrecy surrounding Star Wars: Episode VIII, so clearly Tom Hardy could not come proper out and say he’s within the film, however his response could be very telling. His first assertion appears to indicate that sure, he’s in it however no, he cannot speak about it. The remainder of his assertion appears to sort of throw everybody off the scent, however actually, he does a reasonably poor job. It looks as if we could also be seeing Tom Hardy pulling a Daniel Craig within the subsequent Star Wars film. For many who could not know, Daniel Craig performed the Stormtrooper who Rey used her Drive powers on when she was being held captive on Starkiller Base.
Past the opportunity of Tom Hardy taking part in a small function (allegedly as a Stormtrooper) in Star Wars: Episode VIII and the central forged, we all know subsequent to nothing about director Rian Johnson’s observe as much as Star Wars: The Drive Awakens. We do know that a number of the film could need to be reworked as a result of unhappy and premature passing of Carrie Fisher just lately. Thankfully, she had completed filming all of her scenes for Star Wars: Episode VIII, however she reportedly was going to have a major function in Star Wars 9 as effectively, which implies some issues could have to vary on this upcoming film to accommodate story modifications.
As of proper now, we do not also have a title for Star Wars eight but, however a primary have a look at the film will likely be revealed throughout an upcoming episode of Mark Hamill’s Pop Tradition Quest. So that can most likely change very quickly. Perhaps we’ll even get a teaser? It’s a little unclear what “first look” means, however the secrecy goes to ease up now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is formally an enormous success. The film stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’O, Mark Hamill and presumably Tom Hardy. Star Wars: Episode VIII it’s set for launch on December 15.
