Star Wars: The Force Awakens will introduce a new high-ranking Stormtrooper: Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie, best known as Brienne of Tarth in HBO's Game of Thrones. She definitely looks badass with her chrome armor.

But when Star Wars page shared art of the character on its official Facebook page, a fan said, "really hard to tell that's female armor".


The clever admin of the page wasted no time to shut down the fan's comment.

"It's armor. On a woman. It doesn't have to look feminine," the Star Wars page responded.

The response received hundreds of likes before the original comment was apparently deleted.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released in U.S. theaters on December 18.
