As news reaches highs and lows every week leading up to the release of [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) (and with Rogue One set to film starting next month) certain things get thrown to the wayside because, let's face it, the future is hard to deal with sometimes.
Except, not this time -- because, according to TheWrap, Disney and Lucasfilm are eyeing Benicio Del Toro for the role of Episode VIII's villain.
What this means for the fates of Supreme Leader Snoke, Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma are still undetermined, but Del Toro has been a Disney favorite for years. Already giving stand-out performances as The Collector in [Thor: The Dark World](tag:206462) and Guardians of the Galaxy, it's no wonder why the studio wants the talented -- and sometimes perfectly menacing -- actor.
