Kylo Ren channels Doctor Doom and BB-8 joins the droids in new The Force Awakens promo art

Several new promo images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens have surfaced, showing off the new gang and a few members of the old guard.

The pics are mostly focused on the new characters, including Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, Captain Phasma and First Order Stormtroopers. There’s nothing too insanely revealing, though it is oddly awesome to see BB-8 hanging out with C-3PO and R2-D2.

The new shots of Kylo Ren are definitely making an effort to put him in the same league as Darth Vader, though a few pics (and one in particular) really seem to channel Doctor Doom. Who knows? Maybe having everyone under the same umbrella at Disney is causing some subconscious design crossovers with the Marvel Comics folks. Whatever the case, it definitely works. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18. Check out the art below and let us know what you think:
