chances of Bolg being remade CGI Can't Post

We see "costume" Bolg getting sliced all over by Dwalin. He's in it for a second and we can't differentiate him from other one-second-on-screen-and-killed-orcs. There is not a single thing that makes him important in anyway.

Seeing how Manu did Azog, in a short time, alone on greenscreen set, don't you think there is a serious chance of Bolg getting remade CGI?

I'd certanly like that, movie Azog and Bolg from photos don't look like father and son at all. They need some consistency with a look.

Nope [In reply to] Can't Post

No chance, we see him in the movie, however briefly like you said (I immediately noticed him though), and he is in the movie guide and companion.

Plus, he looks super good, don't see why they would change him.

Blunt the knives, bend them forks, smash the bottles and burn the corks.

That's what Bilbo Baggins hates !

Father and son [In reply to] Can't Post

In terms of appearance, I think the designs of Azog and Bolg do look quite a bit alike: they're both great pale Orcs. So I don't think there's a need to redo Bolg's look.

The only possible issue I see is that one is CGI and the other is not! I wonder if it will look strange if/when the two are in any scenes together. Then again, there's quite a bit of time left before the second and third movies come out. So the artists should have time to work on integrating Azog into such scenes convincingly. Or perhaps they could enhance Bolg himself with CGI somehow if the need arises?

I suspect [In reply to] Can't Post

If we ever do see them together Azog's CGI detail will be more like Gollum I think. CGI Azog was made "last second" and they had to focus on getting his facial features right. Now they can perfect all aspects like his body n what not.

Nothing is for certain [In reply to] Can't Post

I say nothing is for certain. Most of the Orcs were either replaced or augmentated by cgi. So I say there's a might good chance.

I don't know if Azog and Bolg father and son relationship will that big of deal in the later movies .

I will say this.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes Bolg and Azog are pale orcs that are huge 7 foot monsters...but Bolg does look more "weathered" if you will and Azog is more "pristine" and almost marbly white even with his scarring of himself. What i think is...Azog could very well be...necromanced! While Bolg looks the way he does because he is himself and has wear and tear and Azog was "brought back: necromanced", so Bolg has been through more in recent years whereas Azog may have died and necromanced back looking like he did at the time of his death. Possible?
