John Boyega stated that he asked the filmmakers behind Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to feature more Finn in the next chapter of the saga.
Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced John Boyega’s Finn to the franchise as a former stormtrooper who fled the First Order and later joined the Resistance. While fans were made aware of the fact that John Boyega’s Finn was taken from his family and sold to the first order at a young age, not much else about the character has been revealed in the Star Wars films, to the disappointment of many fans.
One such fan took to Twitter to express their disappointment over what they perceive to be a wasted opportunity to fully develop John Boyega’s Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. In response, John Boyega appeared to sympathize with the fan’s complain and advised them to give The Rise of Skywalker a chance, as he was “adamant” on seeing more Finn involvement in the final chapter of the main Star Wars saga.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager.
