    So you start to finding a reason for that, but not for the blood on the helmet, ok understood..now that, a consistency error;).

    Well because the canon is rpetty much that lasers cauterize so shouldnt it have done the same thing in TFA? but anyways.

    1. The blood in ANH is different because it's coming from the severed hand not the victim's arm. The arm wound was cauterised.
    2. There is no blood from Luke's hand when he is dismembered in ESB because it fell down a shaft.
    3. In TPM blood sprays out of Maul's midsection when he is sliced in half. We see no blood come from either part of his body because it fell down a shaft also.
    4. In AOTC we see no blood because the dismembered hand falls off-camera.
    5. The same happens to Dooku and Anakin in ROTS; their body parts fall off-camera.

    I'm not sure where your canon source is when all films from the start tell you otherwise, but yeah TFA made it wrong:eek:.:confused:

    Now wait a second. :)

    1. There was a separate severed hand in addition to the severed arm?
    2. Whether or not the hand itself was bleeding, Luke's arm clearly was not. Cauterized.
    3. While there was a spray of blood, dissected Maul was not gory and spewing blood. Cauterized.
    4. Like #2, we still see Anakin and he is not bleeding. Cauterized.
    5. See #'s 2, 3 and 4.

    I agree with you that the blood in ANH is different, but it's different because the rules for lightsabers was written later. I'm all about head canon, but those five points simply don't make much sense. At least, not to me.

    I mean the separated part (s) of the body produces blood, but not the part still attached :p.

    I see what you're going for, but how would that work? If a lightsaber slices through something, then both sides of that thing will suffer the same effects. Why would one side bleed and the other side be cauterized?

    I'm excited about attempts to explain the blood in ANH. But I don't think this is it. :)

    "Movie magic" works for me. But you're going for a canon explanation. I wonder if there is one? In any case, don't let me stop you. There's got to be some reason for the blood...

    I honestly don't know how much Vader we will see. I think he'll have a more prominent role toward the end of the film. I'm guessing the following:
    • Vader kills Krennic for failing to protect the Death Star Plans. (Most likely)
    • Vader kills most of the Rogue One Crew including Jyn. (Likely)
    • The Death Star plans have been stolen. Vader begins to track down the plans after a recovery from battle [ bacta tank scene? ], then follows with the chase of Tantive IV - Film ends. (Possibly Optimistic)

    Those are just some of my guesses concerning Vader.

    They might be setting up a battle in Rebels where Ezra stops himself from falling to the dark side by killing or thinking that he has killed Vader, in a last hurrah, Vader gets the last laugh and kills Ezra. Thus, we see Vader in the Bacta tank (Ezra gave him a run for his money and nearly killed him) in Rogue One and then he rises later in the film in full suit.

    Ofcourse, this is all doubtful because I don't think they would go through all the trouble to connect Rebels and Rogue One.

    You never know, and it would be a stellar end to Ezra as he attempted to take on Lord Vader

    That's an absolute possibility, but I feel like that would take away from the focus of Rogue One as a film. I see the likes of Kanan and Ezra unfortunately dead before the Rogue One time period giving SW Rebels a few more seasons maybe ending at 5 or 6 - but that's speculation of course.

    I really like the idea of him choking out Krennic for his failure. It would really connect this version of Vader to the ANH version of Vader, which doesn't really like to move a lot... Just choke people for their (perceived) failures... Oh! And swing around a lightsaber like it's plugged into a wall... Oh wait......

    I don't think we are going to see Vader do anything that is above and beyond what we see of him in the OT, simply because it would diminish his role & abilities in that trilogy. But I do believe we are going to see him be ruthless, and feared by both the Rebels and his own officers. Even if he's only on screen for 5 minutes.

    Keeping in mind that most, if not all of our heroes in RO are likely not making it out of this movie alive. I want Vader to do something that makes us hate him more as a villain. Having him kill Jyn in cold blood towards the end of the film, as she sacrifices herself for the good of the cause would be amazing, and set up "A New Hope" perfectly.

    So there you have it. How do you have Darth Vader in the movie in a limited fashion, so not to take away from our other new heroes and villains, but still have a huge impact? Have him kill our hero, that's how. The ending to RO, in order to be a nice complement to Ep. IV, needs to have a bitter-sweet ending.

    I've got it! Save Vader for the last 30 seconds of the movie. We see his back in the trailer. Just have him slowly turn around to face the camera, and not say a single word! Priceless!!! :p

    Seems familiar somehow, like maybe they did that with another major character recently...
