Can The Star Wars Sequel Writers Ever Hope to Create a Better Bad Guy Than Darth Vader

Joseph and Gareth at Skewed and Reviewed have written part one of a series on if Darth vader is impossible to top as a bad guy in the new film series.

Joseph thinks it can be done, especially if Thrawn is used at some point in the future. Gareth however believes that it is next to impossible to top the iconic bad guy and the focus should be on making a good film with interesting characters. (Cinema, Star War: Episode VIII)

Simple Answer: No.

I do not know how they could come up with someone better, in any way.

simple answer is that they don't have to come up with someone brand new, just follow the episodes 7-9. The emperor is the real threat the entire time, everyone else is a pawn in his game.

Thank you, I added my response as well just now, I think the biggest mistake they could make is to try to outdo him, Simply tell a good story and have a good bad guy.

"good bad guy". Your wording is quite confusing.

You should check Wall Street it is filled with them.

Darth Vader is a legend. The character was created at the right time and when it was needed. I don't think the planets will align again to illuminate the mind of a writer to create another bad guy like him any time soon. Especially in an era when everything is a remake of a remake because of the lack of creativity.

And I'm not saying that is not possible just that the percentage of success is really very utterly low.

Hard nut to crack, start with Grand Admiral Thrawn and well take it from there.

A better one? Sure. A more overrated one? Doubtful.

Tarkin was a better villain than Vader in ANH, and for the remainder of the trilogy, the looming threat of the emperor overshadowed him enough; he was always someone else's pawn.

IMO, all Vader really has going for him is his signature look, breathing, and James Earl Jones' unmistakeable voice.

They don't have to, if anyone has played the The knights of the old republic game, a story like that (I wont give it away because its so good) is even greater than what the movies were.

I don't think a new villain could ever be better than Darth Vader. At best, the new villain could match him.

What made Darth Vader so great anyway? Personally I thought both Darth Bane and Admiral Thrawn were far better villains.

I dont think that they will make a better villain than darth vader. maybe at best they will make it close to darth vader's league.
