    If she IS a villain, I wonder how that reconciles with THR's early reports that she's a Kenobi relative.

    Maybe she turns babyface over the course of the trilogy, if this rumor pans out?

    I can see Lupita being a villain who somehow gets pulled in by the good guys and then becomes a major target due to her betrayal against the bad guys. I can see her as a complex character who you never can tell whose side she's on.

    I think they were speculating that.

    Whether it's her character or another one of the villains, I 'm really hoping we see one of them realize the error of their ways and if not change sides, at least become a morally ambiguous anti-hero who helps the good guys out. That's something we really have yet to see in the FILMS.

    Or how about she is a villain that didn't become one because of a mopy backstory, but because she genuinely believes in the ideology of the bad guys and doesn't need "saving". That's really something we have yet to see in the SAGA. In star wars the good guy is who feals sorry for the villain for being a villain 'cause it sucks.

    A: I want a female villain.
    B: here you go.
    A: Cool, when will she be redeemed?
    B: She won't. She is the villain.
    A: But whyyyyyyyy????????????????????

    Palpatine? Believes in the ideology of the Sith, doesn't need "saving". Dooku may also qualify.

    Palpatine was a psycho lunatic and Dooku was a Jedi who fell to the Dark Side, but not bad points.
    I just really don't like that for a lot of people complex villain equals= will get redeemed pretty fast. Cant her/his/its logical reason to want all Jedi dead be complex?

    I still think she is going to play Ventress.

    If she doesn't play Ventress then a relative who dresses very similar and has the same abilities will be fine with me.

    Well the Ventress rumor is all over the internet. It might happen.

    With the recent "Plot Rumours" says that she has been wearing yellow contacts which would indicate that she could play Ventress or relative.

    Would be pretty cool for the first scene to be a dieing Ventress giving her daughter, Lupita, The instructions to kill the Jedi.

    Though I think that the Lupita=Ventress rumor is very likely, I wonder if she truly is the villain, since the last we saw of her in TCW was a morally gray, partly redeemed Ventress.

    Well depends on the morality. For some, morally gray is unacceptable kill it with fire category. Others might attempt to redeem the emperor. We don't really know the moral stance of the movie.

    Because everything from Rebels must be in Episode VII. [face_laugh]

    I think she's villian, but I don't buy it being Ventress.

    Agreed. I think people are trying to much to tie EU and Rebels into VII.

    Wasn't the Ventress rumor connected to the Ancient Whatever title? Wasn't that BS?

    Rumors of her being a villain are really starting to pick up steam from LatinoReview and BadassDigest sources.

    Some of McCaig's concept art for a Sith Witch looked nothing like the design that Inspired Ventress. Perhaps McCaig's other designs influenced the look of an all new female villain.

    Well Ventress isn't EU, she is canon and has an unresolved fate/arc...

    I might be alone on this but does anyone else get a Grace Jones kinda vibe from Lupita? Grace was really bada$$ in that Bond film "A View to a Kill":
