Ben Mendelsohn said 'cooler heads prevailed' in the dispute over Spider-Man's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ben Mendelsohn and David Michôd reveal all about the terrible filming conditions, and even worse haircuts that went into their new Medieval-set drama, starring Timothée Chalamet.
Ben Mendelsohn has praised the work of ILM and ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ director Gareth Edwards for making his scenes with Moff Tarkin – a digital creation – as easy as possible on set. The iconic ‘Star Wars’ character, played by Peter Cushing in the 1977 original, was resurrected for the spin-off film with help on set from ‘Holby City’ actor Guy Henry who stood in for, and performed as, the Hammer star opposite Mendelsohn’s Orson Krennic.
“It feels like if the Empire ever have a job vacancy, they go to the Royal Shakespeare Company to headhunt people,” he told USA Today.

Who actually plays Darth Vader is a tricky question to answer, and one that becomes even more complicated when you factor in his appearance in ‘Rogue One – A Star Wars Story’.
