STAR WARS: General Hux Wants To “Challenge” Snoke
Ahead of the release of The Last Jedi next week, Gleeson has spilled on how Hux wants the top job – and sees Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) as big competition. Speaking to ScreenRant, Gleeson said: “They’ve [Hux and Ren] always seemed to be adversarial, you know? “I think Hux wants to be at the top and he wants to get the crown from Snoke and he knows that Kylo Ren’s probably in a better position to get that.“So I think this fear and hatred, I think he’s a bit freaked out by all the magic stuff.” The actor added: “I think that’s where he’s out with him you know, you know?”
Gleeson was also asked where he’d like his character to go in Episode 9 and Gleeson quick noticed that could be a spoilery answer. “that’s a trick question. I’m calling you out right now! That’s a trick question to find out if we’re in the next Episode. I’m calling you on it and I’m not going to sink to your level on this one.” With Gleeson’s quick response he’s either extremely media trained or he doesn’t make it our alive in The Last Jedi. Do you think Hux will make it out alive? Leave a message in the comments below.
