Paul Bettany drops a hint about his ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ character at Rhode Island Comic Con 2017

Did Paul Bettany just drop a hint as to who he could be playing in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”?

Movie studios typically save their big reveals for the major conventions, like Comic-Con International: San Diego and New York Comic Con. But could it be that attendees at Rhode Island Comic Con 2017 received a new clue as to who Paul Bettany will be playing in the upcoming young Han Solo flick Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly movies podcast, Adventures in Movies!

At the “Road to Marvel’s Infinity Wars” panel November 11, Bettany and Avengers: Infinity War co-star Sebastian Stan were fielding questions from the audience. Due to time restraints, the moderator asked that attendees only deliver yes-or-no questions in the final minutes.So, we were treated to one fan asking if Bettany could tell the audience his character’s name in Solo.

“I’m not sure,” Bettany said nervously as the audience broke out in laughter. “I’m not sure I want to be sued.”

Bettany, who worked with Solo director Ron Howard on A Beautiful Mind, said no, he couldn’t answer, but did follow with:

“Ya know, obviously, I’m a very cool intergalactic gangster.”

You heard the man, Star Wars fans. Get to work deducing just who The Vision could be playing…
