I'm not sure if Thorin is the right one for it. [In reply to] Can't Post

As far as I remember, in the it was elves that first jumped into battle, driven by their hatred for goblins, and they were lead by Thranduil. I think it will be an interesting development for "I don't care for anyone outside my kindom" Elvenking ( If it's stolen by some other irrelevant in the story elf, I'll be very, very sad) It's also the moment when Bilbo decides that he prefers to stand with the "noble Elvenking" to protect him, it was hilarious and adorable for me in the book, I wonder if there's any chance they will use that in the movie.

The Bard also deserves a chance to shine as the new hero of Men - especially if you consider what just happened to them with the Smaug attack, they are the one that will need the most strength and encouragement to fight.

Let's not forget that the leader of dwarf army is Dain, not Thorin, and if anyone should rally the dwarfs it's him.

What I'm really looking forward to is all the diplomatics before the battle, first with Thorin about the treasure. But even more between the three above-mentioned characters, when the goblins arrive. For me it's the crucial moment in the story, when the 3 races of Middle Earth decide to fight together, instead against each other. Which one will be the first to tell they should unite? Who will be hero of the hour? Maybe it's Dain role?

It's hard to have one speech for the whole army with so many distinctive leaders- unless it will be Gandalf to do the speech. Or if we are lucky, we will get each of them to speak to their forces.

As for Thorin, I think at that point he will be preoccupied with his personal struggles, he should be pretty crazy by then. Then of course when the battle starts, he should jump in and do something MAJESTIC to redeem himself and make everyone admire and forgive him.
