Star Wars 7 Cast Pictures Leaked: Adam Driver In An X-Wing, Gwendoline Christie In Camo [SPOILER PHOTOS]

The internet had been assuming Adam Driver's character in Star Wars: Episode VII would be a bad guy, along with Gwendoline Christie. These new set pictures indicate that this might not be the case at all. But what if it still is? Possible spoilers ahead.

Could One Of The Star Wars Spin-Offs Be About Obi-Wan?

First of all, we got Adam Driver dressed as an X-Wing pilot. Now, we have reported about the black X-Wing earlier, so this could definitely be an instance of the Empire repurposing captured Rebel vehicles. It could also be a case of our assumptions being wrong, and Driver simply being a Republic pilot in the style of Wedge Antilles. In a third scenario (and here's where it might get potentially spoilery) he could be an Imperial infiltrating the Republic for nefarious purposes as an X-Wing pilot.

On the same set we can see Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie. She is wearing an olive-greenish get-up which might be construed as Imperial, as earlier reports indicated. Could she be meeting up with her spy contact Adam? Or is she just a person wearing green clothes talking to an X-Wing pilot?

JJ Abrams does not make life easy for Star Wars geeks, that's for sure! Check out all the set pics over at Making Star Wars, who maintain steadfast that both Driver and Christie are bad guys. In fact: "And the recent Adam Driver rumor [...] Gwendoline Christie, the Count Dooku connection, and now the Driver rumors. These are all based on that central idea of an aristocratic family 'line' involving Episode 7's bad guys. And as I said before, I firmly believe its the line of Dooku. Details and characters might have changed but the idea of an aristocratic villain with a heritage going back to the Clone Wars has been there from pre-production and as far as I know it's still a major part of the story."

Well... cripes. What do you think of that? An explicit prequel connection in a movie that so far has been selling itself hard on connections to the three movies people like only. Bullcrap or believable? Let us know in the comments below!
