So what will the villain focus be in TABA? Can't Post

Ive been thinking of this a bit recently and it is quite interesting to think of. By the time we get to TABA, we are going to have three well established primary antagonists: Smaug, Sauron, and Azog. So how are they going to give each character their own time to shine, without being put aside by the presence of another villain? this is what i believe PJ will do.

Our first focus will be smaug. The way that dos ended is enough to make his famous scene continue straightaway into taba. The laketown attack will be very prominent, with no cuts to other storylines, (save thorin and bilbos reactions maybe). Once he is slain by bard though, i want that to be it for smaug! Time to move onto the next two.

Second focus will be The necromancer/sauron. His scenes with the white council, will most likely intercut, with the political debate in erebor. But basically what will happen with him, is that he obviously fights the council, but somehow (dont know how yet) he manages to flee. What this could be, is a little tease to the audience that the real threat is over. They will think that he has escaped and the danger has past. But they have forgotten about the third.....

,,,,,,,focus AZOG! (my fav Wink) What i kind of hope pj does, is not show anything of the army marching, or of Azog at all until sauron is driven out. This will lead audences to a sudden realisation that the threat is still there. They may have forgotten about Azog for not seeing him for the first half of the film, but with him now shown leading an army, they will be very shocked and excited for more action. Also, Azog can do his part in killing/mortally wounding, thorin/fili/kili. Once he dies at bo5a, the villains will all be finished. or will they??......

.....what should then happen, is a little reminder to the audience that sauron is not dead, and there should be a shot of him in mordor. This will show that the immidiate threat has been destroyed, but a much greater one is yet to come, thus forshadowing, the events of LOTR.

either way what do you all think? It is clear that Azog, Smaug and Sauron are the primary antagonist of this trilogy. Bolg to me isnt major, as he is just a henchman of azog

"And do you really think, Thorin Oakenshield, that Bolg will have the slightest symphony for you? After he watched you hack his fathers hand off, so ruthlessly in Moria. Azogs defeat has brought nothing to you, only refuelled hate of his kin, upon yours"
