Star Wars Episode 7 cast rumours : Ronan a possibility, Cumberbatch a lock?


Despite the denials and ‘what!? Star.. what!?’ responses, Benedict Cumerbatch is said to be a definite for JJ Abrams’ “Star Wars Episode VII”, according to Latino Review.

The website, who has been dashing out ‘Wars’ rumours left, right and dead-centre on Death Star, say the “Star Trek Into Darkness” actor says any denial about Cumberbatch not straddling up for a jaunt with the Skywalker’s is BS.

DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE ABOUT BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH NOT BEING IN STAR WARS. HE IS IN THE MOVIE! In fact, he will be in all three Star Wars films! It’s all a smoke screen. Folks, remember when Cumberbatch denied being Khan for over a year? Same situation here. At least give us the benefit of the doubt hence why we are bringing this up. Point is, he lied before and he can lie again. Google it. One more time because it is worth repeating, Benedict Cumberbatch will be will in the upcoming Star Wars movies. I don’t care if he denies it till opening day. We were right before about him playing Khan, and we will be right again on this one. Technically, his part in Episode VII is very small but the role is much bigger in Episode VIII and Episode IX.

The website also gets a few droid butt’s hard with news that “Host” actress Saorise Ronan might be in the mix to play a key role in the 2015 blockbuster.

The tweenager, whose appeared in the likes of “The Lovely Bones” and “Hanna”, recently passed on the role of ‘The Scarlet Witch’ in “The Avengers : Age of Ultron”. The website, claiming Ronan read for an unspecified part (could be a good guy.. could be a bad guy.. could be a wookie), says “Star Wars” might be the reason the actress passed on the plum “Avengers” gig.

Interesting to note that Disney still hasn’t officially announced any cast-members for the film, despite the fact Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are happy to announce their commitment to it.
