A new and exciting report awaits “Star Wars 8” fans as actor Tom Hardy is reportedly confirmed to play as First Order Stormtrooper. Catch the details here but this article might contain spoilers so read at own risk.
The comedic encounter between “The Revenant” star and Finn on Episode VIII was revealed by Making Star Wars. Here’s what will happen in order according to the online media outlet:
First, his character won’t realize his encounter with “incognito” FN-2187 while on a secret mission but the latter is enlivened to see the said stormtrooper as he “walked up behind him and slapped him on the ass.” Then, FN-2187 allegedly assumed that he’s going to be captured and dead.
Unexpectedly, the stormtrooper soon realized that (Finn) FN-2187 is an old friend and colleague in First Order academy days. He went ahead and congratulated FN-2187 on his “promotion to Resistance infiltrator and spy.” Amazed, FN-2187 is free to continue his secret mission.
The scenario depicts Finn’s mission but it suggests that the First Order are trying to cover up the real events behind Finn’s dissidence. As seen on “The Force Awakens,” Finn was “perished at the battle of Starkiller Base.”
It could be possible that Kylo Ren, along with Supreme Leader Snoke and General Hux are threatened for a possible coup if the stormtroopers learned about what really happened to Finn. But fans may contain their excitement for a little longer until “Star Wars 8” kicks off.
HNGN noted that this is not the first time that “Star Wars” films had offered Hollywood actors for a cameo. “Spectre” actor Daniel Craig also appeared in the previous film as one of the stormtroopers. More than that, Simon Pegg was also featured in the film as Unkar Plutt, who is the junk dealer that Rey dealt with, as per Cinema Blend.
It was also rumoured that Royal Princes Harry and William might have a cameo as well so stay tuned. “Star Wars 8” will be out in cinemas on Dec. 15, 2017.
