Rumor: Adam Driver Not a Villain in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

     September 16, 2014


From the moment Adam Driver stepped into the Star Wars: Episode VII rumor mill, 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.

Hit the jump to find out what Driver was donning on set, but be aware; there are some spoilers in this article.  Star Wars: Episode VII is due in theaters on December 18, 2015 and also stars Mark HamillCarrie FisherHarrison FordAnthony DanielsPeter MayhewKenny BakerJohn BoyegaDaisy Ridley, Gwendoline ChristieOscar IsaacAndy SerkisDomhnall GleesonLupita Nyong’oMiltos Yerolemou and Max von Sydow.

It’s totally possible, but who’s to say Driver isn’t just dressing up as an X-Wing pilot so that he can do 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 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 Christie and with that one, it actually could be her in it.  Click here to check them all out for yourself.
