Why do you think Marc Hamill isn't in the trailer? I'm thinking there's going to be a moment in the movie where he comes out in a grand climax scene as a hero to win a battle with badass force power and they didn't want to blow it by showing it in the trailer.

Skywalker presumably is in it if you assume his robotic hand is the one palming R2. But maybe that is just a red herring. Otherwise, he's not on the poster either. I suspect he's linked with the big bad somehow. I bet skywalker gets a send off Obi Wan style curing an evil he might have helped unintentionally created. Actually, my first thought was that Skywalker actually is the big bad under the mask (which would mean is in on the poster and in the trailer) but I don't think the studio or Abrams have the balls to go all in like that.
The trailer was a bit of a disappointment after the teasers. I thought the previews were amazing and they had me totally hyped. The trailer seemed pretty generic, perhaps even a let down. Perhaps they are playing too coy in not trying to give too much away. But I think it that attempt, they were overly ambitious and ended up producing a pretty shitty trailer. Just my opinion, I'm sure other people are hyped. But I think they should have just left it at the teasers... they couldn't get me much more hyped than the two teasers that were already released.
