The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
It is all pure speculation and my comment should be also treated as such... but no, he is not. There is nothing more certain. They are simply breaking away from the prequel material too much, and as Knights of Ren seem to suggest he is also not even a Sith.
Good theory. It makes sense. Possible. Have to see how it plays out. Only time will reveal the truth. Would be nice if it were true.
Read aftermath he's at the end of the book as a emperial comander
My thoughts exactly!
And what if Snoke is actually Sidious instead of Plagueis?. I mean, we dont really see *him* but a hologram, he may have learned Plagueis secret and killed him, and the music, well, Sidious is right there ;-)
Borrowing from Dark Empire! Like it!
It has been confirmed Snoke is NOT a Sith, AND is a completely new character to the Star Wars universe so both Palpatine, and Plagueis are out. I'm not sure why all the fanboys are so eager for Snoke to be a recycled character. This theory is 100% wrong and it was proven wrong even before the movie came out.
