TFN revealed some scenes where Hayden (playing Anakin) is shown awakening after his tragic fight with Obi-Wan, and realizing what's been done to his body (to keep him alive) and what he's done to Padme and Obi-Wan.
This is gratuitous pandering to fans who want to see Darth Vader "get made."
1) I would have used another character to be "a pupil (of Obi-Wan's) before he turned to evil" to help make Darth Vader's identity ambiguous until Yoda confirms it in ROTJ, preserving the shock in ESB, when you never thought Anakin was still alive.
1a) Give Obi-Wan a new padawan, who is jealous, or has other greivances with Anakin, and who ends up MIA - probably dead, but possibly on the Dark Side.
1b) If General Grevious is a Cy-Borg, have him serve Obi-Wan first, as an advisor into how to defeat droid minds, and then have him turn on Obi-Wan, but escape, so that he could possibly be rebuilt into Darth Vader...
2) Leave Anakin for dead after the tragic fight with Obi-Wan. The new Dark Lord can be obsessed with finding Padme, but it can skip the details on exactly why he wants to know the fate of her and her unborn Skywalker child.
3) Introduce Vader as a mystery: the Emperor's new enforcer. Possibly General Grevious or possibly that new Padawan of Obi-Wan Kenobi's.
Do not show Hayden's face while he wears "the suit."
Make the whole darn thing play out like a 12 hour movie! Don't spoil the surprises.
Don't reveal there are twins, either...
I may learn to hate Episode 3.
And I love the prequels.
Wouldn't it suck if the middle chapter of this whole thing turned me off?
I mean right smack in the middle of watching all these films in episode order?
If Lucas is intending to make the movies watchable in order, he's going about it wrong. 4,5,6 and then 1,2,3 seem to be the way to view them.
The experience we had watching these films will no longer be timeless, as everyone will know who Darth Vader is before Luke does.
Sucks to be a fan right now...
