Star Wars: The Force Awakens Supreme Leader Snoke Art



Cosmic Book News has been skipping out on posting all the potential rumors and spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but now that the movie has opened, the flood gates are open.

Earlier we posted over 20 Easter Eggs featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, now check out some possible early designs of Andy Serkis' Supreme Leader Snoke.

Regarding the look of Snoke in the movie, I wasn't too thrilled with it, but we have yet to see a good upclose look at the main bad dude (I suppose). It's also been said Snoke is really around 7 feet tall.

Serkis previously offered about the character:

“Supreme Leader Snoke is quite an enigmatic character, and strangely vulnerable at the same time as being quite powerful. Obviously he has a huge agenda. He has suffered a lot of damage. As I said, there is a strange vulnerability to him, which belies his true agenda, I suppose.”

“The scale of him, for instance, is one reason. He is large. He appears tall. And also just the facial design – you couldn’t have gotten there with prosthetics. It’s too extreme. Without giving too much away at this point, he has a very distinctive, idiosyncratic bone structure and facial structure. You could never have done it [in real life.]”
