Black-Clad "Jedi Hunters" May be the Baddies in Star Wars: Episode VII

By Gary Cutlack on at

Rumours from people supposedly close to the set and/or making of the next Star Wars film claim to have named the "baddies" of the piece, suggesting the plot revolves around "Jedi Hunters" that have made it their business to hunt down the previous films' heroes.

The source of the rumour claims these Jedi Hunters run about with lightsabers too, suggesting three of the previously named actors -- Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver and David Oyelowo -- are the ones that get to wear the black kit and be the inevitably-defeated-in-the-end bad people.

But as the disclaimer says in big, bold letters, it may all be nonsense. Or deliberate misdirection. [Making Star Wars via io9]
