Paul Bettany Has Wrapped Filming for the Han Solo film


It seems like the only marketing/publicity done for the Han Solo standalone film has come from the social media accounts of its director Ron Howard. Well he’s at it again, this time posting a photo with Paul Bettany confirming the actor has wrapped his newly added character’s scenes for the film.


On Force Friday (September 1st) Howard tweeted out a photo of him with Paul Bettany, the first reveal that Bettany had joined the Han Solo film:



Now a little over two weeks later Howard has once again tweeted about Bettany, this time announcing that the actor had finished his scenes, which if Howard’s tweets are any accurate measure of a timeline, would mean Bettany was in the Outer Rim for roughly two to three weeks.




Several media outlets reported different takes on the character Bettany would play. Some asserted he was there to replace Michael K. Williams, while others seemed to suggest he was a new character added after Ron Howard took over.


Either way, I think we can all agree seeing these tweets from Ron Howard of actors wrapping their parts is a welcome site for a film that at this point feels like it has been in production for a decade.


The untitled Han Solo film is still scheduled for release on May 25, 2018. Although there have been rumors, and even a push by some to reschedule it to December, it is currently still slated for its initial release date. We’ll always keep you updated as news rolls in on the upcoming film about everyone’s favorite scoundrel!
