But now there are new rumors floating around that the studio has its eye on a particular actor for the villain of the flick!

Benicio Del Toro, who played everyone's favorite hoarder The Collector in Marvel's breakout hit Guardians of the Galaxy, is reportedly being sought to play the big baddie in the next installment in the new Star Wars Trilogy!

The Traffic star previously stated that he may not return for the GotG sequel, so he could be free for a different space adventure!

The package of LEGO's Millennium Falcon set was spotted early, and it includes a named character that no one has even heard of!

The character, listed as Tasu Leech, doesn't have any info with it, but it is a dead ringer for cast member Yayan Ruhian:
