The theories were true! Azog is Yazneg! I mean, Yazneg is Azog! Can't Post

Now, this may have already been talked about before, but if it was, I missed it, and then I'm sorry if I bring this news which isn't actually new.

Anyway, do you remember that they were some people who thought that Azog is CGI because it was the only way for PJ to replace the orc that was supposed to appear in various scenes? These theories started to appear after the whole John Rawls/Manu Bennett confusion (with Rawls first credited as Azog, then as Yazneg, and Manu Bennett being credited as Azog after that). Well, these people were right! I just checked the videos of Letteri talking about the special effects, and on the third one (which you can find on this page:http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2013/01/16/hobbit-fx-wiz-joe-letteri-on-gollum-the-goblin-king-and-azog/), at 0:05, you can clearly see the orc now known as Yazneg fighting Thorin during the battle of Azanulbizar! Letteri says that it was because PJ wasn't convinced with the design for Azog that he got replaced. So, originally, Azog was indeed meant to be a guy in prosthetics! And it's interesting to note he was apparently meant to appear during the Warg-Scouts sequence.

Again, sorry if this has been already discussed!
