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 Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Gwendoline Christie, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Miltos Yerolemou and Max von Sydow.
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. Does that mean he’s not a villain after all?
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.
