New Trading Cards Confirm The Name Of Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Villain
Denny’s, yes, you read that correctly, Denny’s has confirmed the name of Solo: A Star Wars Story’s villain via a marketing campaign for the restaurant chain’s collaboration with Topps trading cards and Lucasfilm’s latest blockbuster.
Earlier today, it was revealed that Enfys Nest will indeed be the villain’s name in Ron Howard’s upcoming Star Wars spinoff. Denny’s validated the antagonist’s alias, which had been floating around for weeks now, through the unveiling of their new Star Wars-inspired menu alongside a set of Topps trading cards that fans can collect, the proceeds of which go towards the charity, No Kid Hungry, to help combat child hunger.
In addition to confirming the Solo villain’s handle, the set uncloaked several new characters from the spinoff, too. You can check out a sneak peek at some of the trading cards below and see for yourself:
Enfys Nest is the leader of a Swoop gang called the Cloud-Riders that first appeared in the Star Wars comic, Eight for Aduba-3. As of right now, not much is known about him in regards to character details, but the film’s trailer did showcase the villain battling it out with Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and Han Solo himself (Alden Ehrenreich) – so we imagine he’s a formidable threat.
As you no doubt know, Ron Howard took the reigns of Solo: A Star Wars Story when Lucasfilm and original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) parted ways over “creative differences.” Since then, the space-set epic hasn’t exactly instilled hope in fans. Thankfully, though, we’ll be getting another trailer soon which should give us a better idea of what we’re dealing with here ahead of Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters on May 25th.
