Ron Howard has openly been sharing all sorts of juicy tidbits from the Han Solo movie set ever since he took over directing duties earlier this summer. His most recent share though packs a major revelation though. Apparently, Paul Bettany (Vision), has joined the cast, which was revealed through a Ron Howard tweet featuring the actor on set in costume with some sort of globe looking prop in the background.

Upon a deeper investigation, it looks like Bettany’s character may be tied to Emilia Clarke’s, because the set he is on is more than likely the same one we saw in a set leak from a few months ago. They appear to be in some sort of museum, or some fancy person’s home that just so happens to collect a lot of galactic collectibles. Either way, Bettany’s stealth casting is very interesting, so hopefully we will get some sort of idea as to who he is playing soon. Although, considering we still don’t know much about Emilia’s character, I wouldn’t hold my breath. The secrecy behind these two characters could point to them being very influential to Han’s story, as well as the Star Wars universe as a whole.
The still untiled Han Solo film is set to hit theaters in May of 2018.
