It’s long been rumored that Disney wants to capitalize on one of the most well known and popular charcters in existence, Darth Vader, and now an actor is rumored to be playing the father to Luke Skywalker.
Spencer Wilding recently had roles in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Victor Frankenstein, Jupiter Ascending, Doctor Who and Game Of Thrones.
More than likely Spencer Wilding will be featured in the costume with James Earl Jones back as the voice of Darth Vader. Jones has been voicing Vader in the animated Star Wars Rebels series, so it’s probably a sure bet.
Star Wars: Rogue One takes place before the events of Episode IV and after Episode III where Darth Vader first appeared in the movies.
“Star Wars: Rogue One” has a December 16, 2016 release directed by Gareth Edwards starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, who plays a performance-capture character in Rogue One, and Riz Ahmed.
Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.
