Details On Benedict Cumberbatch's (Rumored) Role In STAR WARS EPISODE VII Revealed

Despite apparent denials from Lucasfilm and Disney, new details have emerged in regards to Benedict Cumberbatch's rumoured part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII. He will apparently be playing a Sith in a "major role" which will see him star in the entire trilogy. Read on for details!


Earlier today, we brought you the news that Benedict Cumberbatch has reportedly been cast in Star Wars Episode VII (reuniting him with Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams). Various sources have claimed that the studio is denying these reports - hardly a surprise - and Badass Digest's Devin Faraci had this to add. "I've heard the role he's up for is that of a bad guy, almost certainly a Sith. And it's a major role, one that will continue throughout the whole new trilogy. This part is why he dropped out of Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak." That certainly makes a lot of sense, while Faraci goes on to say that the reason this story didn't break in any of the usual places (trades such as The Hollywood Reporter and Variety) is because of, "official denials coming down from multiple channels". However, we all know how secretive Abrams is, so that really doesn't mean anything at this point! What do you guys think?
