Let me just paraphrase Philipa's comment from the DVD interviews:
"The fans try to be the guardians of the source material, but they're not, it's bigger than any one person or group of people..."
Or something like that. The point is, let's not get into the "PJ isn't a purist" debate again. Remember, he didn't too shabbily the first time around...
BTW, given that Itaril is from Mirkwood and Saorise Ronan looks like Orlando, I'd bet there's more a chance of Itaril being Legolas' younger sister rather than the two having any kind of romance, (unless it's incestuous like most of Middle-earth)!
If "Young Elf Lord" shows up in the script, I'd guess it'll be Elladan or Elrohir, and the son of Elrond and daughter of Thranduil will end up "hooking up" before one or both are squashed like a bug at the BoFA.
I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.
