Fili is going to die too.

I never meant to imply that Kili and Fili get more screen time than any other dwarf. I was just wondering if Peter Jackson is making Kili his darling out of the brothers.

But others have said that Fili's actor was changed at the last second, so now it does make more sense that Kili is the more prominent of the two, for now at least.

I don't want to start a flame war, I never did. I think It's sweet of Kili to be so concerned about his uncle's approval.



LOL I don't think any flame wars are going to start. :)

Yes he is going to die too and that's why I said I fully believe his death scene is going to have as much attention as Kili's. :)

In fact I'm pretty sure they'll probably die in the same scene, I don't have any proof of that but it just seems like dramatically it would make the most sense seeing as they both fall defending Thorin. Honestly in the film they are almost always together, they are rarely far from each other.

We see them sitting next to each other, sleeping next to each other, eating next to each other, riding next to each other, they share the same tree at the end and they share the same eagle. They are often given the same duties(like watch the ponies), they are the ones used to highlight the drama of the Stone Giants scene and make it more than just a special effects scene(even if some people seem to miss the "human...erm...dwarven element":)), when they are pulled apart as Fili calls to Kili and Kili looks devastated.

But Kili is described in one of those movie tie in books as the more "irrepressible" one and a bit rebellious(which I think is something that we'll likely see start to come out in the next film), so I imagine whatever else comes into it and the reasons for it, etc he might end up with more face time based on his personality traits, personality traits which let's face it, were probably settled on before they'd even cast the actor.
