Do you know anyone or think any of the general movie goers are ignorant as to the identity of the Necromancer? Obviously we know it is Sauron but I wonder if anyone doesn't know it. The Nazgul was a little obvious for a hint to me! I could see the design in AUJ throwing people off though. Do you think they were even trying to make the Necromancer thing a big movie reveal/shocker? It doesn't seem so to me.



I saw the movie with someone who had never read any of the books and had only seen the LoTR movies. He asked me about the Necromancer after the film was over. I said I didn't want to spoil it and asked him to guess who the Necromancer was. His guess was that the Necromancer was the Lord of the Nazgul. His reasoning being that he remembered that character being called a "witch king", and the one ghostly nazgul we saw in The Hobbit made him think all the nazgul must be in Dol Guldur.

    Well, for the more astute casual movie-goers there is a fairly obvious clue that is not a Nazgul Radagast-Aiwendil Send a private message to Radagast-Aiwendil Jul 6 2013, 8:03am

    Absolutely ... many, many, many people (general movie-goers, have read the book once, seen the LOTR films 10 years ago) have asked me who the Necromancer is. DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Jul 6 2013, 8:32am
