    [face_thinking] ...And now supposedly a rumor (saw on the Yahoo main page-of all places) that the main villain is a female.....

    ??? [face_thinking] Goes against other previous villain rumors. But if the previously remaining female role they were looking to fill was to be a "major" one as they said...

    [face_thinking] ... Lots of [face_thinking]

    I still say she's the daughter of Ventress and Obi Wan.

    I'd say they knew about the plans for this character as far back as the Maul arc from TCW.

    Maybe the female villain is Palpatine's Sith Witch wife or daughter [face_thinking]

    We talked about this on the most recent Full of Sith, but my thinking was if we're going to play around with the speculation a bit: why automatically default to Lupita possibly being a darkside user? Especially since she's been tied to the series as a potential Kenobi since we first heard her name?

    But Gwendoline Christie as Adam Driver's muscle? THAT would be fun as hell to watch.

    I think Lupita's going to be a good guy, if not the third of the main trio in the sequel trilogy.

    I also think that John, Lupita and Daisy are the young trio of leads of the ST.

    Isaac might be a Solo and Gleeson a Skywalker, but I don't think they will be the "leads" of the ST.

    wasn't driver in the marines though? I think he is going to be the muscle I could be wrong though.

    As a 6'1" female, I'm not sure if I should take offense to this or not. Why do we tall girls always have to be evil or aliens? Tall girls play nice, too. :( ;)

    True, but Gwendoline is 190cm, and despite her acting skills, I'm pretty sure her height signifies something...;)

    I've got Luipita pegged as a goodie too, based on nothing but a hunch. Gwendoline could be either/or methinks.:p

    For all we know, they could be planning to use trick (Hobbit) camera angles and she will be the shortest person in the film.

    Yeah, I think Christie is going to be a bad ass, imposing Imperial/ Sith of some kind or another.

    TCW retconned Asajj Ventress as Dathomiri, when originally she was Rattataki. This might play a role.

    Scenario: Perhaps Ventress (Lupito) and Talzin (Christie) have conspired, Rule of Two style, to attain the secrets of the Sith.

    100% more plausible than main EU characters showing up in the film.

    Some will no doubt disagree, but I've got a feeling that Lupita will be playing a small but very important role as John Boyega's character's older sister. Perhaps she is killed or captured and her death/capture is the event that sets his story arc in motion.

    Well, Ventress and Talzin are in the spotlight on the official site today. There are even the concept artworks from EPII where the character was originally conceived. Maybe this is a hint...

    What if Lupita is playing some kind of Sith/ Villain, and misinformed conjecture along the line is what's led to the Ventress rumour?

    While this sounds interesting (an extension of the Inquisitor character), ANOTHER cast member! They pretty much lost me with the mention of David Oyelowo. I've heard he's great, but the cast is already overfull and I highly doubt there's another somewhat high profile person. What does that make-14 main cast members?

    No, it does rather sound like she is a dark side user:

    I thought about that as well. And wondered would a dark side Jedi have the yellow eyes? Interesting either way. I hope she is a villain though.

    I love these rumors of her playing a Dark Side villain. She's so beautiful and would be so striking in a black/chrome costume with a red lightsaber and yellow eyes.

    For some reason imagining her in black and chrome armor reminds me of Faora in Man of Steel. Which would be a good thing IMO.
