Serkis will be playing a character called “Supreme Leader Snoke”, and no one called “Supreme Leader” is ever a good guy. Is this guy in the remnants of the Emprire? Is this who Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) answers to? December 18, 2015, still seems like a long, long ways away. Further details from Coming Soon below.
