Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s DJ Gets A One-Shot From Marvel In January

Posted by October 17, 2017 Comment

The Last Jedi has only just begun to unravel its mysteries to us. One of the biggest questions heading in: who is DJ? Benicio del Toro plays him in the film, and very little is known about the character. We know he he meets up with the Resistance on the gambling planet of Canto Bight. We know he straddles the line between bad and good. Sounds like a Han Solo to replace Han Solo, if you ask me.

In January, after the movie is out and we have answers, we will get more. Announced as part of today’s Marvel solicits, DJ is getting his own one-shot that takes place before The Last Jedi.

When STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI takes theaters in FORCE (get it?) this December, Star Wars fans will get a peek into some new dark corners of the Galaxy Far Away…and out of one of those corners scuttles DJ, the mysterious character played by Benecio Del Toro! Who is this mystery man, and what put him in the path of our Resistance heroes? Join Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Star Wars Join the Resistance, Star Wars: The Last Jedi – The Storms of Crait) and Kev Walker (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Darkhawk) as they reveal a day in DJ’s life just before his appearance in the film!

32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

Not a ton to go off of there. But hey — that never stops us Star Wars fans from speculating away! My money is still on him being a new character and not an existing one, but I am almost always wrong. We’ll just have to see.
