Two Star Wars films in a row feature a female in the lead role, and guys who may or may not be very lonely are upset about it.
Today’s Star Wars: Rogue One trailer release has caused those guys who were complaining about Rey in The Force Awakens to come out of the woodwork again, this time raising a fuss over Felicity Jones — a female — playing Jyn.
They appear to be sad that a Luke or Han type isn’t leading the first Star Wars spinoff, which is set in between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Luckily for the complainers, we can confirm that there will be dudes in the movie. Like this one played by Diego Luna. He’s cute, isn’t he, dudes?
