Rumor – Adam Driver’s Character NOT a Villain in STAR WARS EPISODE: VII?

Posted on September 16, 2014 at 2:51 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


From the moment Adam Driver was rumored to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII, there was talk about him playing a villain and we’ve been running with that idea ever since.  However, a photo just surfaced of Driver in costume on set that suggests otherwise. The images come from Rick Lawrence’s Facebook page (via Star Wars 7 News) and while they are a little blurry, it does look as though that’s Driver donning an X-Wing pilot uniform. Due to the possible copyright of these images we can’t host them, but feel free to check them out at the link above.

It’s possible that Driver is an actual good guy, but who’s to say Driver isn’t just dressing up as an X-Wing pilot so that he can star-wars-episode-7-cast-600x340-2do some damage while undercover?  Or how about a flashback scene?  Perhaps the character was once an X-Wing pilot and then he switched teams.  On the other hand, J.J. Abrams has got to be aware that his set is being photographed around the clock so who’s to say he isn’t just messing with us at this point?

Star Wars 7 News also claims that John Boyega is in a few pictures, but he’s got his back to the camera in every image so there’s no confirming it.  The outlet also suggests that another photo features Gwendoline Christie and with that one, it actually could be her in it.

Star Wars: Episode VII is due in theaters on December 18, 2015 and also stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Miltos Yerolemou and Max von Sydow.
