Where's Bolg?

Where's Bolg? Can't Post

I really liked the new trailer but one thing missing was Bolg, he's also been barely mentioned by cast or crew, I really hope he hasn't been written out in place of Azog, I actually quite like Azog but I think Bolg looks way more scary in fact he's possibly the most bad ass looking orc of all the films so would b a real shame if he's been ditched or if if his part has been made smaller. Here's hoping they are just saving him for the film itself.

I'm guessing he has a small role in DoS but is mainly in TaBA [In reply to] Can't Post

He's definitely going to be the orc leader in the Bo5A. I don't see how it could go any other way. Azog will be dead by then.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Bolg's primary role will be in TABA as well.

Let's not forget about Dain... [In reply to] Can't Post

My thinking is this...

- Azog is obviously killed by Dain who is being played by Billy Connolly.
- According to IMDB, Connolly has been credited in DoS despite us hearing as little about Dain as we have about Bolg.
- Maybe Dain will make an appearance in DoS to kill Azog, thus paving the way for Bolg in TaBA.
- After all, if Smaug and Azog are both killed in DoS, they'll need more than the Necromancer on the evil side in TaBA.

Hope that sounds logical :)

I also prefer the look of Bolg to Azog. It's amazing how much scarier and more intimidating Bolg looks solely with make-up and prosthetics than Azog looks entirely with CGI!
