With Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens set to release this Christmas, it’s not too late to start speculating on rumors for the yet to be titled Episode VIII. As the casting for the next in line begins, the churning rumor waters have placed Benicio del Toro as the next likely villain to make his mark on a galaxy far, far away.
Del Toro played a small villainous role as The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy, though his role in Episode VIII would be much larger. If del Toro does join the film, he’ll star alongside John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and will be directed by Rian Johnson (Looper).
