Now I know i'm getting ahead of myself, as The Force Awakens hasn't even come out yet, but hear me out! We know that Rogue One

: A Star Wars Story takes place before A New Hope, and with confirmation of Starkiller Base being in TFA, it got me thinking, was that base named after a certain someone? Now I know that George Lucas had originally planned to name Luke Skywalker - Luke Starkiller. The Starkiller Base could just be a reference to that, but what if it's more? What if it is hinting at Starkiller's involvement in the Star Wars mythos? Since Disney's Star Wars Canon purge, Starkiller might never be mentioned, and written off as a legend. Or, maybe we will see him?

For those of you who don't know, the character of Starkiller comes from the video games The Force Unleashed I & II. He is Vader's secret apprentice, whom Vader himself trains to basically assassinate whoever he wants. Depending on your choices in the game, you can either help start the Rebel Alliance, or further the Empire's rule. If the First Order are the ones who own Starkiller Base, would that mean Starkiller helped the Empire in official canon? Could we see Starkiller as a villain in Rogue One?

He givin' you da stare...

Sam Witwer not only voiced Starkiller, but they animated his face after him! If they were to bring Starkiller to the screen, it would only be fair to have Sam play him, as he did a great job for both video games.

Looks dope!
