Star Wars: The Force Awakens: First Look at Gwendoline Christie as Villain Captain Phasma
May the 4th be with you on International Star Wars Day, as we've now seen both of the main villains from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. First, we got our first look at Adam Driver as the crossguard lightsaber-wielding Kylo Ren, and now Vanity Fair has released the first image of Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie as the other primary antagonist, Captain Phasma, affectionately known as the "Chrometrooper":



We're just as excited about this as we are about Driver's Kylo Ren, if not more. Not only does Christie kick ass and take names in general, but J.J. Abrams recently revealed that the character was written to be a man which, sadly enough, probably means that she'll be a more feminist character just by default. Hopefully someday we'll have a preponderance of cool female characters who aren't only cool because they're supposed to be men, but until then, we'll take what we can get.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out in theaters on December 18.
