The ‘Girls’ actor was confirmed to have landed a role in the seventh instalment in the ‘Star Wars’ saga erlier this year, and the identity of his character, villain Kylo Ren, was later revealed in the May issue of Vanity Fair.

A still from the film showed Adam alongside two Stormtroopers, but the newly-released photos show the villainous character at his scariest and most impressive.

Entertainment Weekly have shared the new photos of Kylo Ren, who is sporting a metallic mask - which obviously reminds us of Darth Vader - and what looks like a chainmail hood, while clutching a menacing, homemade red light saber.

Director JJ Abrams has also teased details about the character, claiming: “He is a character who came to the name Kylo Ren when he joined a group called the Knights of Ren.

“He is not your prototypical mustache-twirling bad guy. He is a little bit more complex than that, and it was a great joy to work with Adam Driver on this role, because he threw himself into it in a deep and remarkable way.”

‘The Force Awakens’ is slated to hit cinemas on Christmas Day, and will see the return of original ‘Star Wars’ actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill to the franchise.
