bald, muscle packed orc. I really think that is the gist of it. They could have worked Bolg into his role very well, and if Thorin killed Azog, that makes Bolg's vengeance highly plausible. Bolg being implicated in Thrain's capture and torment would also fuel Thorin's rage. I think, at the end though, they liked Azog as a villain better than Bolg, and so they went with him. Too bad.

I generally enjoyed the film, but for me, the inclusion of Azog went way too far into the realm of fan-fiction. PJ kept saying that he had enough for 3 films because he had the rights to the Appendices, but it seems that everything that he has mined from the Appendices, he has altered so severely that it barely resembles what Tolkien wrote.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
