Confirmation that Adam Driver will be aligned with the dark side comes as little surprise given that nearly all of the trailers and news seem to focus on the side of good. It is also revealed that Driver's Kylo Ren was indeed the black figure holding the "hilted" lightsaber from the first The Force Awakens teaser

universe. There is one more big reveal in the books, but it is not coming easy. Per Vanity Fair's website:
"There’s one more big character reveal to come in the June issue. Sign up for Vanity Fair’s newsletter by eight P.M. E.S.T. for an exclusive first look, and we’ll send the final Annie Leibovitz photograph straight to your inbox on Tuesday at four P.M."
