Bad Ass Digest, which reported some interesting cold open and plot details for Star Wars VII the other day that is back at it again with rumors surrounding Gwendoline Christie’s as-yet unknown role in the picture. And it’s a good one, if the rumors are true.
If the rumor holds true, Christie (SPOILERS that you’ll forget months before the movie opens) would potentially be hunting down a struggling Stormtrooper (John Boyega) who had a light saber fall into his hands. Christie herself could be an Imperial trooper, a Chrome Trooper, or even a light-saber wielding Sith. (The best part about this rumor is that it apparently covers all the bases!)
No, but seriously, if true, the cool part is that this is apparently the character that was originally offered to Benedict Cumberbatch, and I’m not sure how to explain why that’s so cool, but it is. It gave me a swell feeling in my soul parts, while this image gives me a swell feeling in different parts.
