Back when we got those amazing character posters for The Force Awakens, which featured Rey, Finn, Han Solo, General Leia and Kylo Ren, one question seemed to be on everyone's mind; where's Poe? The Resistance X-Wing pilot, who's described as "the best friggin' pilot in the galaxy" by Oscar Isaac who portrays him in the film, Poe Dameron's presence in various promotional material has been surprisingly underwhelming as of late. But it seems now Lucasfilm is making up for the lack of Poe with a brand new character poster. Poe is in his flight suit with scars on his face, perhaps implying that we're seeing him after his violent encounter with Kylo Ren that was teased in the trailer. The poster was revealed on the official Star Wars Facebook page, which you can check out below!
It's also worth noting that they refer to him as "Black Leader", which confirms a long standing rumor that this will be Poe's call sign in the film. It's also most likely a reference to the fact that Poe flies a Black X-Wing at some point in the film, as we have seen in various trailers and TV spots.
Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18th!
