You mean the marketing where he is also placed in the villian category or shown fighting rey? Is that the marketing we are supposed tobe afraid of?
BREAKDOWN OF KYLO’S MARKETING FOR TLJ
**CAUTION - SPOILERS AHEAD**
In what TLJ marketing is he fighting Rey? (Outside of the video game - which is clearly different than movie marketing…) Is this new? Can you point me to that?
Yes, as I have said many times, Kylo Ren is still a villain. The point of a redemption arc is… redemption. A hero cannot have redemption… Because… well, I guess I’ll leave you a definition… again…
; plural noun:
1. the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil.“God’s plans for the redemption of his world"synonyms:saving, saving/freeing from sin, vindication, absolution “God’s redemption of his people”
The above was found quickly from Google Search. I recommend Google if you get confused about the definition of words again. GOOGLE is a great resource for big words.
Also, if you mean to say that all characters who appear in the “villain” categories of marketing are DEFINITELY going to be villains, then the new poster leaks (from Making Star Wars) indicate that Luke Skywalker - who is described as looking dark and menacing on the “Dark Side” poster for the future promo of the film - is also a villain. So… marketing can be deceiving, or simply put, characters can be placed in juxtaposition of who they will be interacting with or associated with generally by the audience. However… it should also be noted - before we continue - that Kylo in these new poster descriptions, is often paired with Rey, and that likely he is being put together with Rey and Luke for the Force plot - specifically. And MSW leaks show us he is on Ahch-To for seemingly a long time. I am one to think he doesn’t stay a consistent, HARD villain for half the movie if he is in close proximity with Rey and Luke. Logically, that wouldn’t work out.
Anyway, as for the only marketing I’m aware of, here:
