That's the idea: this would be the movie that shows how he completely lost all of his humanity and transitioned into the ultimate symbol of badass villainy. Or at least seemed to. That way, you can have the downer ending of him turning full-blown Sith Lord in mindset, but there's the silver lining of knowing that he does, eventually, snap out of it. It's a win-win, and it boggles me that they're not seriously developing that
for a movie or even a TV show.
