Following her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress (12 Years a Slave), Lupita Nyong’o is the latest name added to the Episode VII rumor wagon. Word is that she may be going up for the role of a villain, possibly as either a “descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi” (I’m still really peeved about that), or even a Sith. Nyong’o’s agency has declined to comment on anything regarding the rumors.
Would you like to see Lupita as a Sith? (I know I would.) Tell us what you think in the comments!
