from the hilltop.

And I have VERY much been hoping they would take the main elements of that scene and place them in Dol Guldur.

I share your fears.

I didn't mind the Radagast scene so much. I wish the fight had lasted a few seconds longer, and that the decisive strike from Radagast had included some small reaction of light or force to make clear that his power was factoring in. However, I did note that his staff does strike The Witch-King's face, so at least the dispersal has some weight.

Yeah..I strongly hope that he will be captured by Sauron himself as well. Anything else except perhaps him against all 9 (in the book I think he did not fight them all at weathertop did he?) would be ridiculous.

But I most certainly also fear for the whole DG Plot to become an utter mess. I was not too happy about their ideas there in general. (Nazgul tombs!??Crazy) And even if the plot itself is good, it might get poorly executed like that scene in AUJ where Raddy explores DG.
The effects were godawful ( I have never seen such a bad ghost/spirit.. the ones in LOTR were better; Sauron was also very underwhelming) and it was not very convincing having Raddy fight off the Witch-King/Khamul with two swings of his staff and without any magic.

So let us hope the whole thing will get more sinister and thrilling in DOS and TABA. The newest trailer gives hope...

Worries concerning Dol Guldur. Being captured in one movie and knocked out in the next would be TOO much. AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 4:15am

    I understand and largely share your concern regarding this subplot MechaGodzilla Send a private message to MechaGodzilla Nov 5 2013, 5:54am
        Absolutely, Elessar and MecaGodzila. If they aren't careful they will make him look like he cannot get out of any supernatural fix AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 7:14am
    Well, it could work. Bumpypotato Send a private message to Bumpypotato Nov 5 2013, 6:19am
        How famously powerful he is may depend on how they handle this. If done badly or without proper respect, AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 7:23am
            I don't think audiences see Gandalf as weak though starlesswinter Send a private message to starlesswinter Nov 5 2013, 8:30am
                I wish I shared your optimist view, Starless Winter, I truly do. I, however, can still recall AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 9:04am
                    Well, that's halfway through one film though starlesswinter Send a private message to starlesswinter Nov 5 2013, 9:19am
                        Two of the four are yet to be determind, StarlessWinter. If he does not acquit himself well AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 9:24am

        Yes to Glorfindel, but to the capture...ehhh. I don't think you can just allow for that when AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 8:57pm

        I think you are being sarcastic. lol. If not, I HOPE you are right, but I rather doubt it. AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 9:06pm

                It is different. For one thing, we know Bilbo lives. But also, we can very easily assume AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 5 2013, 11:13pm
