Crazy(?) but Maybe True Rumors or Facts Can't Post

Hey folks! So I got to thinking on some of the rumors or at least some of the "crazy" ideas we have heard in regard to DOS and TABA, and I wanted to compile a list of what we have heard and what we know, and put it together.

Note that I do not mean what some may consider crazy as in the inclusion of Legolas, the orcs in Laketown or anything like that. Here is a list of what I mean, and what I am currently aware of:

- In DOS, there may be a flashback where Thranduil relays the history of Orcrist to Thorin. In this flashback, it is said that we see the Fall of Gondolin, and possibly Gothmog the Balrog, Ecthelion the Elf and a young Smaug.
- According to PJ, we are to see more of Sauron's backstory fleshed out. This interview (as I recall) was from when GDT was still attached to the project, but the idea is likely that we would have flashbacks to Sauron's past years and would see him in more of a capacity.
- According to Benedict Cumberbatch, he mentioned something about Sauron being at the Five Legions War or something, and it appears to be the BOFA.

Thoughts on all of this, the plausibility, and any others you've heard?

                Would a flashback to Gondolin serve to move the story forward? Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Jul 18 2013, 2:30pm

                        I can confirm that the "rumour" is just a rumour. / DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Jul 18 2013, 4:09pm
                            As lovely as Gondolin sounds, I would rather see (much more story relevant) Durin's Bane bringing ruin AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jul 18 2013, 4:41pm
                Fair enough cats16 Send a private message to cats16 Jul 18 2013, 7:54pm
                Little sense LordGawain Send a private message to LordGawain Jul 18 2013, 8:07pm
                    I am inclined to trust in DanielB. That said, if they DID do a Gondolin scene, I doubt it would be long enough to diminish AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jul 19 2013, 3:49am
        Not entirely true. He has rights to use the name Gondolin, and to depict that it AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jul 18 2013, 5:35am
