This led to speculation that possibly Spencer Wilding was reprising as Darth Vader for the Han Solo movie, as Wilding played the role recently in Star Wars: Rogue One.
However, it turns out to be a mix-up, and that Spencer Wilding is not in the Han Solo movie.
Spencer Wilding took to explain the situation on his official Facebook page:
Hi guys and to all the world of fans from #Starwars there is a rumor out there that is saying am in the new #HanSolo film … wot it is I hat to cancel on a show called #Fandomfest.com state side because I am doing a #Charityvisit at a school called Cobram secondary college & a special needs school over in lovely Australia to meet all the #Awesome kids and very talented kids that they are very impressive:-) … so just to let u all no I am 100% not filming on starwars… the comic con promoters of the show put 1on1 together and got 69 lol and they just try to guess y I canceled and came up with that … so sorry guys defo not true they have removed it of there site now .
