I don't get the fear over the mask. Like was said in this thread, it seems like the point of this design choice, if it's true, is that you can't miss the fact that there are literal cracks in the armor he's trying to don. I mean, apparently they glow to make it as in-your-face as possible. That symbolism is about as subtle as a sledgehammer. And even if he wears it, it's not going to stay.  A regression at this stage in the game after how TLJ was left off would make perfect sense. That just means the narrative is going to be turning it around. They're not going to hide away Adam's face for long; we know how much they lean on him as a super talented actor and particularly how he face acts for this character.

Also, MSW confirming this leak isn't the same as their past speculation. They heard from their sources the same thing this guy later posted on Reddit. It's legit.

Uh yeah the dudes who got trolled in retaliation for dropping the script for the first movie and who’re now doing unpaid marketing promos for their TV series and totes legit. It has nothing to do with getting perks like early access to content or invites to premieres or theme park openings. Can’t wait for this crack team of sharp thinkers and their Reddit think tank to start dropping the truth about the 2020 presidential campaign season

@kroi
'Kintsugi', that was also what I thought about this rumour, even though I always forget the exact term.

At first, I was against the mask (because I want to see Adam's micro-expressions), but now knowing it could have red material fixing it, I'm warmer to it.
Also, if it's true, I can see the merchandising with normal Masked Kylo figurine and special Masked Kylo figurine with the red parts glowing.

Ha, this is exactly what I said! If the galaxy knows that Ben Solo = Kylo Ren, it will be harder for him to leave his FO days behind him when he turns to the light. If he wears the mask as Renperor he will get more of a clean slate as Ben Solo. And I think from a storytelling standpoint it's a great step towards redemption for Ben to want to wear the mask as Renperor. The whole point of the mask is that he's a poser; he needs it to make himself more scary and more intimidating than he really is. If Ben were comfortable doing dark side things in public with his own face then I'd worry more about Bendemption being in jeopardy. On the other hand, we want to see AD's face so here's hoping they don't overdo it with the masked scenes.

I was one of the people who theorized about the impersonator and I'm pretty darn certain about it.

But I also am fully onboard with there being a decoy Kylo for his own protection as well. I kind of expect that as an homage to Padme at the beginning of the film, with the nefarious Kylo impersonator stepping in during Act II.

This "spoiler" could literally mean a bunch of different things and essentially amounts to nothing except misdirection (IMO), which is why it was dropped so easily. I predicted mask-based misdirection in IX literally the week after I saw TLJ (last January).

To anyone fearing Kylo will go full dark in IX, I doubt it very much. I'm pretty sure JJ isn't going to reverse all Rian's good work to satisfy a few toxic fanboys. I do however, expect him to be in a dark place at the beginning. Rey's rejection, specifically the manner of it, hurt him deeply and this boy deals with his pain by converting it to anger.

One thing...whenever they mention a 'cracked' mask I keep thinking of the Phantom of the Opera! Smile

@nickandnora

hiya! Yeah you are the first person I read sharing the impersonator idea nickandnora!
I like the idea of Kylo/Ben losing control of the identity at some point (this happened in the DJ comic- he created a fake persona and he lost control of it lol).
But yeah I also love the idea of decoy Kylo and it's call back to Padme.
I agree with you 100%.  Lots of misdirection. Let the games begin!

I'm not telling anyone what to think or how to feel.. each to their own.. For me though - I'm prepared for a year ahead full of leaks, unsettling snippets and misdirects that on the surface don't bode well for Bendemption and Reylo. Honestly, the only thing that will make me fall off my chair is a confirmation of Reylo and Bendemption.

Through this leak re the mask I've realized that I have handed over to Lucas film all my fears about IX. I'm open to the story they are wanting to tell and I'm gonna go with it. Whatever these guys give us in IX I will love it, because they've given us TFA and TLJ and I've loved it.. and because to me reylo and bendemption are end game planned from the start and I don't see anything changing that for me short of the release of IX turning everything on it's head. I'm not going to spend a year in agony worrying about it. I want to enjoy the wait. Case in point - if by chance we do get Kylo and his mended mask in IX, a number of clever comments here have demonstrated beautifully that it can be done well if it is what is going to happen..
Hang in there all!!! sunny

Here's another article from MSW:

https://makingstarwars.net/2018/12/the-star-wars-episode-ix-report-lots-of-tiny-tidbits/

I like what she writes about Kylo's new helmet and current state of mind,  but it worries me that she thinks it means Ben Solo's further descent into evil.  
Sigh.. I don't know what to think guys, but sadly my Reylo expectations have reduced significantly now.... Neutral Triste
Other than that is is a great article with great piece of  tidbits and info.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about her opinion too much. The writer is a known anti-kylo/Adam driver & anti redemption in general.

Also MSW's speculations are quite terrible & have been very wrong in the past even if their info was good.

Just take the info and discard the opinions.

I've been following spoilers here before joining, and honestly, if he does super red glue his helmet together again, I really don't see it as an issue. If anything, the fractured appearance of the helmet to me would be a good representation of his inner turmoil and fractured self.

Agreed with all the above posters; Amanda straight up tweeted that she hopes the mask means no redemption for Kylo before the article was posted. She has no scoops behind that it's just her POV. Also; there's also a bit about does Kylo love Rey? and it seems to also downplay the importance of the mask, so I wonder if it was written by Amanda AND Jason? Either way it shouldn't affect any IX or Reylo expectations.

They are not big fans of Reylo. Amanda is especially is not a fan or Reylo or Kylo Ren. So I would take the personal views with a grain of salt.

@justyou

Exactly (and welcome!)

Honestly, just think about it for a second. What at all is narratively satisfying about Kylo just doubling down on the dark in IX and that being that for his character development for this trilogy? Like, what would have been the point of EVERYTHING that came before it? What would have been the point of building a bond between he and Rey that only just began to stand on shaky legs in TLJ? There's no tragedy in that bond being broken yet because it wasn't developed enough, so that's not a plot point IX can revolve around. That means the tentative bond they formed, and seem to have buried (but we know they didn't), has to amount to something else. And the only satisfying, exciting way it can go is closer and stronger.

As was said, Amanda is known for disliking Reylo. All of her analysis has been wrong so far, it seems, so I wouldn't worry about it now. She's very biased on that aspect of things.

I don’t know them well enough but I was under the impression that he was pro / neutral to reylo and she is completely against. Leaks analysis are just speculation and depends on who is speculating of course, the important is just the information. I personally am expecting for evil kylo marketing (with the Asian marketing being a little more truthful) so we can be surprised as an audience. I would be more nervous if they teased the redemption too much because that would Probably mean they would subvert our expectations (kind of like they joked with Rey skywallker a lot).

I think I would be more concerned if Kylo had went and gotten himself a fancy new mask. To me this feels very much like Kylo/Ben still trying to hold the pieces of his unraveling life together with some red space glue.

An aside, does anyone else find it funny that Kylo spends an awful lot of time telling Rey to let go of the past, let it go, kill it if you have to, when he's 100% haunted by his? I mean, dude has his grandfather's helmet and sits around talking to him. He's haunted by his grandfather, his parents, his uncle...

This is all so super sweet and so happy they got nom’d but my SW a** zoomed in on “Adam Driver “ “4am” and “work mode” which makes me think he’s in the UK filming SW!

There was that rumour about swordfighters filming this week too..
