No,no,no,no, Symbelmine..... [In reply to] Can't Post

.... I really think you're beating yourself up about this unnecessarily. There has been absolutely nothing to link Legolas with Itaril - no leaks, no rumours, no nothing. It's just fan speculation. We don't even know there IS an Itaril. If there is, and if she has a love interest - both points still speculation - the only supposed leak to suggest that this might happen specified an Elf Lord of Rivendell - and we do have another of those in the cast - Lindir. And we still don't know the whole cast.

I truly don't think they will mess with an established character like Legolas in that way - it's almost as if you're willing it to happen.

And I really hope there won't be. Somehow I don't like this character, she's too much like a Mary Sue to me.

I agree with you Dormouse... [In reply to] Can't Post

nothing has been confirmed about the romance and it might not even be with Lego if it does happen...I'm glad he's back. I for one cant wait to see the movie or at least the cast in their make up and costumes yay!

Tom Cruise will play Gollum's newly made-up love interest!! He's short enough that they won't even have to use special effects for him! Didn't PJ mention something about a love interest for Gollum in that one interview that one time?

There may well be two made up characters [In reply to] Can't Post

Legolas in Mirkwood makes sense, he's the Prince after all, whether he was in the book or not.

But the possible romance between a made up character like Itaril and an Elf Lord would be more acceptable to book fans if the Elf Lord were made up as well. This is where I think they may have been going with the possible casting of Benedict Cumberbatch who just screams Elf Lord without makeup.

right. [In reply to] Can't Post

they mayve been toying with the idea but had some realizations that not every film needs a romance. anyway im glad Leggy will be there...still hoping for Aragorn in fact i wish TH began with the whole Fellowship sitting by a fire and some one telling this tale. a brief but harmless cameo by the 9 Walkers. Alas...

You are right when you say: [In reply to] Can't Post

"But the possible romance between a made up character like Itaril and an Elf Lord would be more acceptable to book fans if the Elf Lord were made up as well. This is where I think they may have been going with the possible casting of Benedict Cumberbatch..."

It's a question if Peter, Fran and Philipa cares more for nerds, Tolkien fans, Tolkien, the true story and canon stuff more than for Orlando Bloom teenage fangirls who are already disappointed that "Orli" didn't have a love interest in LOTR because according to them "Orli" is so "hawt" that it's not natural when he doesn't have a romance in the movie.

Oh good [In reply to] Can't Post

Now we don't have to put up with anymore interviews where Bloom dances around the question that everybody already knew the answer to Angelic.

Of all the cameos from LoTR characters, this one at least makes some sense, so I am fine with it. And I say that as someone who was not much of a fan of Bloom's Legolas.

However, I could do without another "look how cool I am" Legolas moment in these films.

Earl, now you're getting me all confused again... [In reply to] Can't Post

... wasn't Dol Guldur overthrown at the time of TH (when they drove out the Necromancer), more or less prior to the Battle of the Five Armies? Did it need overthrowing again some sixty years later during the Ring wars? I'm thoroughly confused (maybe I should refrain from joining discussions in the middle of the night) Unsure

...because I'm just so pleased about this. :D I know it had become more and more obvious over these past few months (he must be so sick of the Hobbit question by now...) but I couldn't let myself relax until it was confirmed. I've been praying for at least a cameo for soooo many years. Laugh
