Mark Hamill just gave away his fate in Star Wars, then took it right back again

Always a man to blur the waters between legitimate spoilers and what can only be described as complete and utter bantha fodder, Mark Hamill once again had the Internet guessing whether or not he has just dropped a massive spoiler about his future in Star Wars… only to set the record straight in super quick time.

In a recent interview with Ray Davies of the Kinks for The Big Issue – of all places – Hamill talked about the future of Luke, and it sounded like it spelt dark times ahead. “I finish Episode VIII, and then I’m out of work,” he said, seemingly eluding to the fact that he’s either unsure of his involvement with Episode IX, or more sinisterly, Episode VIII clearly spells a sudden end for him.

Den of Geek, who zeroed in on the quote, didn’t give much more when it came to details about how the question was phrased, leaving Hamill himself to dismiss it as simply Internet miscommunication – shame on you Den of Geeks, looking for those clicks!

He did so, with this Tweet:

Write this one up to the Internet blowing things way out of proportion again, sorry.

What do you think Luke’s fate will be in Episode VIII? Will he live to die another day, or is this it for him? Let us know over on Facebook.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
