Does anyone reckon its cool that our 4 main antagonists are still alive? Can't Post

Compared to the lotr, which by now we have seen the defeat of antagonists like Saruman and Lurtz, the hobbit has all 4 still alive. And even better they are all introduced prior to the third film. Unlike ROTK we are introduced to Gothmog and the witch king iin that film alone. (the whitch king was introduced in fotr, but he is really least developed to me)

But now in the hobbit we have The Necromancer, who is THE main antagonist, though his actions and motifs are played out in the other antagonists. Smaug, who works somewhat on his own errand and is probably the main antagonist of the actual story of erebor. Then there is Azog and Bolg the two minions of Sauron who do his will but with the aid of their hate towards dwarves.
And to be honest with you, compared to the lotr these antagonists are much cooler in my eyes

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.
