Now all they need to do is find some quality screentime for Kili since he got ZERO in AUJ and there will be more characters in DOS who need introduction.
Yeah seriously. Dwalin, and Bofur had more lines among the 2nd line of dwarves(Thorin and Balin being the first), though I do think he managed to make the most of what little screen time he actually had. Besides the obvious one, his naivete, he's also brave, open to new things, protective and a a very good fighter who has the ability, if not always the experience, to think well on his feet when it comes to fighting.
But I do hope there is more quality and quantity in the next film. There's room for it in the sense of the aforementioned characteristics - because he does seem somewhat curious about the new cultures he's seeing, he does get injured(so a reason for him to interact with others in some way) so he can be a way to help introduce some of these new characters. Turner did mention in an interview Laketown would be important for his character, so assuming they don't cut it out, that may be where the quality screen time comes in.
