Rumor: Darth Vader Will Appear In ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

Holy Double Star Wars news Batman! Hot off of THR’s scoop on Phil Lord and Chris Miller Directing a young Han Solo movie, Birth Movies Death is reporting that Darth Vader will be appearing in Star Wars: Rogue One.

Birth Movies Death‘s  Devin Faraci had this to say

Hopefully this weekend at Comic-Con we will get some more information about the film, but in the meantime I have a tiny tidbit to share. I ran into a good source this past weekend and, over drinks, was told a nugget that should make people pretty intrigued: Darth Vader will be in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. He will not be the main antagonist but he will be working behind the scenes, pulling strings and will appear onscreen. Literally, I’m told – he’ll be showing up via viewscreen or holo projection or something. Will our heroes actually run into the Dark Lord of the Sith in person? My source wouldn’t say. My source was also mum about Grand Moff Tarkin, who was of course the commander of the fully operational Death Star.

If you didn’t read correctly and you’re thinking that your dreaming, you can pinch yourself right now because this could be a huge possibility with SDCC a few days away. Although this is a rumor and it should be taken with a grain of salt, what do you guys think of Vader appearing in Rogue One?
