Thrain (possible spoilers)... Can't Post

I'm wondering how he will be incorporated into the next movie. Gandalf is obviously fighting him (the clip from the very first trailer)...but he looks a little dead. I wonder if he's just been tortured so badly that he looks like that, or if he's brought back by the necromancer somehow (and thus fighting gandalf). Any thoughts or theories?

:s :s more necromanced theories? :s... I think he's simply become maddened, as in the book. (though of course the timeline is -completely- different)// [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not a conspiracy theorist type... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but it wouldn't surprise me if PJ used it as a device to make the necromancer more prevalent. Just a fun thing to discuss on a rainy day :) I was trying to figure out how they will work thrain's backstory into the next movie, and that's the only clip we have to go by so far.

Maybe a re-write [In reply to] Can't Post

The clip of Gandalf fight Thrain (or supposedly Thrain) was only in the first trailer before they split the movie into 3 parts I believe. I would not be surprised if they re-wrote the storyline of Thrain since they are doing lengthy pick ups this year.

I expect some sort of explanation as to how Gandalf met Thrain and got the map and key (probably in the prologue or in a flashback).
