The level and style of violence in The Hobbit trilogy Can't Post

Its quite obvious now that The Hobbit trilogy is definitely going to be a much lighter affair than that the LOTR trilogy, as it is in the books, however this got me thinking. Will that translate to the violence and warfare that we see in the films. The Lord of the rings films featured a lot of gritty battle sequences which included decapitations and the cutting of limbs, blood spurting out etc, and it worked really well.

Do you think that will be lacking in the Hobbit films due to the more lighthearted nature of the films and story? I for one hope not, as I thought it really helped ground LOTR in reality and show the the dangers that our fellowship were experiencing. I am afraid that it might. For example the during the 2nd trailer we see Óin running past a goblin and knocking it on the head... not exactly the gruesome kills we saw in LOTR. (And yeah I know that such comedic elements are present in the lord of the rings e.g Sam with the frying pan and that its just a trailer)
