The Official Visual Companion to the movie states, in keeping with the novel, that the Wargs [In reply to] Can't Post

of The Hobbit are an independent, evil race/can, of wicked, demonic wolves. They aid the orcs out of mutual wickedness but are not of the orcs specific breeding, though the Gundabad line does suggest otherwise. Though not necessarily. They might just be from the region surrounding Gundabad.

In Reply To
I figured from Gandalf's comment "But these are Gundabad Wargs!" that there must be a number of different breeds of Wargs -- which, as an aside, suggests the Orcs must be breeding them for particular traits, which in turn suggests a whole 'nother aspect of Orc culture I'd never thought about. So maybe the Dol Guldur Wargs are bred for extra nastiness, and Moria Orcs are bred for maneuverability in tight dark places, and Gundabad Wargs are the thoroughbreds of the Warg world: lean mean running machines. So Azog need not be from Gundabad himself; he's just selected his stable of Wargs from there.

Just my idle speculation. Smile


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
