Therefore, fans asked back in August if Clint would be making an appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Ron assured the fans that they would not be disappointed.

Then last night, Ron took to his Twitter account to give the fans just what they were looking for. He revealed a sneak peak of Clint’s character. Ron tweeted a shot of raw footage from the movie, showing a scraggly Clint. This character, it appears, will take place in the film’s droid fight. This fight was hinted at with a release of a 2-pack of Funko Pop! fighting droid figures. We’re not sure yet exactly how Clint’s character will be involved. However, it’s evident that he will be there when it happens.
