New poster.

Damn. It being on the poster makes for a big point against my theory that Rey’s saber wouldn’t be blue. Other than that- looks cool. Emperor looks weird. Like he’s animated and not live action or something.

It's a nice poster... but it does sort of look like the Emperor is snorting the background of the lightsaber battle.

New poster.

Spoiler alert: The climactic battle ends with Rei force-shoving Kylo Ren into the Upside-Down...



...Whence he will eventually emerge, having travelled far in both space and time... To become DOOM!

Also, Rei is the distant ancestress of both Eleven and Jean Grey...

Wow. Adam Driver is not a name I ever considered for a Doom, but now that you mention it...

When you've got to wear a mask for most/all of the film, it comes down to physical presence.

And since Hugo Weaving was already in the MCU...

Yup. I can see it.

Damn. Adam Driver would make a perfect Doom. But it probably won't happen because there's too much similarity with Kylo Ren, appearance-wise. Right down to the scarred face.

It occurs to me that Kylo Ren basically is Doom. A self-entitled, over-privileged, narcissistic manchild.

According to reports of the footage shown at D23,
Spoiler: Show
we see Rey wearing black robes and wielding a red double-bladed saber.
Spoiler: Show
If I were a betting man, I would put money on that being a vision Kylo sees courtesy of Sheev.

My thought was that the blue saber wouldn’t be blue, because Luke’s saber in Return of the Jedi was green because of how the blue looked on the desert sky background. With the desert in the first trailer, I figured JJ was going to go for the same thing. Maybe not green, but not the same blue. The way the poster is built around blue and red makes it hard to imagine they’re going to change the color of that specific saber, at least.

Well... it is true enough that they may just have run with the good old "sabers are color coded for your convenience," and blue = Good.

On the other hand, it's not like Abrams hasn't previously put out a Star Wars movie poster that lied like a lying liar. "Finn with saber" technically happened. But it was not the iconic takeaway from TFA where lightsabers are concerned.
