At any rate, I may get skewered for this but I think if they had left Azog out and put Bolg in his place throughout the trilogy it would have provided continuity. Have we talked about this before?

I've never liked the idea of Azog surviving Azanulbizar; it's a major change from the text, and I've never felt that the reasons given by the writers for keeping him alive were very good reasons. The "Thorin's revenge" subplot was built up into a huge deal in AUJ, but for DoS the subplot was omitted from the narrative almost entirely. Don't get me wrong; I'm very glad they took the focus off of the Azog/Thorin subplot for DoS. But the fact that they only once referenced what was a pretty major secondary plot in the first film, and gave Azog's old role to Bolg, reinforces my belief that they should have just used Bolg all along for the Orc pursuit. I just fail to see why both Azog and Bolg were needed for these films. Maybe TaBA will make it clearer.

    Clearly Azog but I think that was part of the point of Bolg... moreorless Send a private message to moreorless Dec 23 2013, 9:09am
