Losing Bilbo Can't Post

I, much like many other fans, have begun (or, more accurately, continue) to worry about PJ+Company disregarding The Hobbit himself in favor of more elf spamming and traditional heroes such as Bard and Thorin. In fact I've been almost despondent lately because my theory is that AUJ was the most Bilbo-centric these films will ever be. And that was my #1 criticism of the first installment.
Martin Freeman is doing some fantastic work with what he's given...here's hoping he's given more! The nature of DOS in many ways could make it have the least for Bilbo to do. I really hope this doesn't happen- most likely a flimsy compromise will occur. Bilbo will be our hero through Mirkwood until the elves arrive to save the day. Perhaps more emphasis will be placed on his burglar abilities in the middle chapters and then TABA will really let him shine.
Also, on a side note, it's curious more emphasis hasn't been placed on the Sherlock connection and the brilliant casting there. I know fans love it, but I think the correct marketing could really help DOS's numbers.
