It has been noted by a few that it very much appears that in this still from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Phasma (admittedly standing the background, keeping an eye on General Hux and Kylo Ren in this original image) has shed her right gauntlet.
Although we typically tend to stop sharing stills once a film is released, it probably goes unsaid that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is not your typical fare.

The new stills, over 20 in all, have been added to the beginning of our gallery embedded below.

Promising to be one of the more darker films of the Star Wars saga, The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015) was issued a rating of PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America, it was announced today via its weekly Classification and Rating Administration (CARA) bulletin. According to the MPAA, the film received its rating for ‘sci-fi action violence.’
Although the PG-13 rating did not exist until 1984, beyond the debut of the original trilogy of Episodes IV, V and VI, it did exist for the prequels, but only the third, Revenge of the Sith, managed to receive the oft-questioned middleground between PG and R.
