J.J. Abrams is famous for keeping secrets. His whole schtick as a director is the “mystery box”—finding pleasure in the unknown, and in the tease of that uncertainty. He didn’t show the monster in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield’; hell he didn’t even show the title of the movie in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield.’ If J.J. Abrams could release a movie without telling you anything about it, he probably would.

It has been nothing but ‘Star Wars’ mania since the trailer for ‘The Force Awakens’ debuted on Friday. We’ve seen fan-made versions of the trailer, people dissecting every frame of the footage, and general excitement for J.J. Abrams’ first installment in the new trilogy. But, as is expected, there’s also been some negativity out there. While most of us thought it was fantastic that the first face we saw in the trailer belonged to John Boyega, some people have been distasteful, criticizing the film for featuring a black Stormtrooper. That’s OK, though—Boyega isn’t letting those comments get him down, and he has an appropriately awesome response.
