Thorin vs ... a Giant Bat at the BoFA? *speculations and spoilers* Can't Post

Following several discussions regarding PJ's last shooting day updates, and a detailed analysis on who Thorin could be fighting in this picture, two things emerged - this is neither Azog or Bolg ...



Then again, as some suggested, it could simply be an orc - but why wear an entire greensuit, rather than a plain orc-costume. The attire seems to indicate an entirely CGI-crafted creature.

And whilst a goblin could suffice, I've convinced myself that Thorin may be fighting against a giant bat ... It might sound ridiculous to some, and yet, it's got an interesting concept to it.

I'd imagine PJ won't use the bats simply to cover up the sun or as "vampires" over dead bodies. We'll most certainly see them harassing and attacking Elves, Men and Dwarves - seriously injuring them

Thorin's "Last Shot", might not have necessarily meant his last stand; even if it did, this Bat ecounter could be just moments prior to the dwarf being mauled over by Azog (or Bolg).

Any thoughts? Am I way over my head?Crazy

    I think the main point of the Giant Bats, if any, is to be in air combat with the Eagles Seaber Send a private message to Seaber Aug 6 2013, 8:37am

                It has irritatingly cropped up in the majority of movie discussions I've had with both fans and non-fans alike (bot not on torn). Aitieuriskon Send a private message to Aitieuriskon Aug 6 2013, 4:36pm
