    Vader's eye-lenses red (matching ANH design)
    Plus the lower breathing-vent also seems smaller like ANH. ;)

    The quote about Director Orson Krennic speaks to how Vader will be used in the film.

    While the main villain will be Krennic, Vader will for the most part likely be played in contention with Krennic.
    Not with the Rebels.
    So on the Empire side, this is somewhat a Vader vs Krennic film, which makes it all the more interesting.
    Until the very end when we know Vader has finally taken over the mission to retrieve the plans himself. (you can guess what becomes of Krennic)
    Which leads to the opening of ANH.

    I fully expect Vader to kill Krennic.

    Just thinking about Vader showing up with the Imperial March playing is enough to get me hyped. I hope his role isn't too big or too small; like I said earlier, give him roughly ten minutes of screentime and one solid action sequence and it's perfect.

    Can't wait to see Vader. Goes to show you have to take film makers comments with a grain of salt, as they swore that there was not going to be any force users in this.

    Did he swear "there was not going to be any force users."?
    Do you have any evidence of this?
    If this is the quote you are referencing he was pretty clearly talking about no Jedi coming to save the day.

    i think the relationship between Vader & Krennic will be similar to that of Kylo Ren & General Hux

    All i want from Vader is a set piece akin to what they did with him Vader Down...he wiped out an entire battalion.

    It was glorious.

    Oh yes. I would love to see something like that. With that exact dialogue.

    Its such a great line. Im sure Jason Aarron would die a happy man knowing his comic line made it into a Star Wars movie

    I hope Edwards and co. had the Vader body actor(s) study the hell out of Prowse's body language.

    I really wan't a bad, brutal, bulliyish, savage, unlikable killer. I really hope they make him despicable. Some large action scene depicting the full force of the dark side. I wan't to come out of the theater thinking: Someone get that mutha... Man, i can't wait.

    When has Vader ever been "unlikable", when not played by Hayden? The dude is so cool, even as he slaughtering Rebels, he ges the love.

    Vader could have said something about Mon Mothma's husband's affairs, but didn't because her daughter was present :o

    Yea, I don't see any way Krennic "avoids Vader's wrath" in the end of this movie.

    Eh. I dunno.

    Judging by the whole Krennic v Erso's vibe from that last trailer, I'd wager that Jyn is the one to end him.

    They have mentioned that Krennic is trying to avoid Vader's wrath in the movie. I get the distinct feeling Vader is going to end him.

    I agree with what one person said in this thread that I also expect Vader to have 10 minutes of screen time. I just he's useful in those 10 minutes we see him on screen.
