YouTube Channel Star Wars Theory believe Darth Maul could be Supreme Leader Snoke but before we get into that, here’s a little back story on Darth Maul.
We see Darth Maul first in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, where he wowed us all with his unique double bladed lightsaber and his affinity with martial arts and the Force. After defeating Jedi Master Qui-Ginn, Maul was cut in half by apprentice Obi Wan Kenobi sending him to Naboo’s core. We see Maul after this to our surprise in Clone Wars and the Disney created Star Wars: Rebels, which takes place after Episode III and before Episode IV. He was defeated two time in a fight to the death by his old apprentice Darth Sidious in which one of those battles left his brother, Savage Opress dead. Maul went into hiding multiple times during this time plotting his revenge on Obi-Wan, Sidious, and the Empire taking his time to seek direction and refugee in the Sith Temple.
The YouTube channels theory is that Maul comes out of hiding for the third time, fights Vader and ends up unbelievable hurt and in return permanently injures Vader as well, causing Vader to go to the Bacta Tank as we’ve all seen in the trailer for Rogue One. This is where Vader receives his new suit and cybernetics revealing why he’s so slow and clunky compared to after Revenge of the Sith. Now, one of the Nightsisters, one of the members of Maul’s mother, or possibly a follower of theirs picks Maul up take him to be healed. Resurrected and placed in a meditation healing chamber for all of the years leading up to the Force Awakens
