A Powerful Role for a Powerful Actor
In the Dune universe, the Emperor is the most powerful character. The Emperor provokes House Atreides into a battle with House Harkonnen after seeing a vision that a younger monarch will attempt to succeed him.
It’s uncertain how Walken will approach the subject, but his charisma promises to set the role apart. Fans might get treated to a new side of the actor and hopefully add in that flare that the role calls for, only time will tell.
