^^^ No. There's no Balrog in the next one. Gandalf, along with the White Council, will be going up against Sauron in the next one, though. And I think he also shows up at the Battle of the Five Armies? I've only seen that horrible Rankin/ Bass animated feature of The Hobbit, never cared to read the actual book, and I think he was at that battle in their adaptation.

I don't think it's described anywhere in the appendices that Gandalf ever faced a Balrog before his fateful confrontation with the one in Moria. He feared them because like him, they're a type of Maiar. So, essentially, they're equals.

^^^ I suspect Saruman may be there at the battle with Sauron?

He's already quite shady in Peter's depiction in An Unexpected Journey, so he may have already been turning against the White Council at that point.

The thing I don't like about the Hobbit films is that they feel like the LOTR. The Hobbit and LOTR books feel completely different and I wish Jackson would have stuck to that.

I adore Peter's LOTR trilogy. The Hobbit has left me cold so far. To be fair, I appreciate Peter, Fran and Philippa's revision of a simple children's bedtime story into something substantially more in tone with the richness of the LOTR. But, it's still lacking much of the heart, the passion, the craft of storytelling that I adore in the LOTR films.

And this trailer looks entertaining enough, but it also reminds me too much of a cutscene from a videogame. Visually, it hits all the right places, but the heart and personality is missing for me. It's like a physically-beautiful model that lacks a captivating, charming and passionate personality: The Hobbit is Naomi to me-- whereas the LOTR is Christy LOL

I hope it's in my lifetime that Peter, Fran and Philippa will be able to give us The Silmarillion...

^^^ No they really can't.

Christopher Tolkien owns the rights to the remainder of his father's work, and with his distain for Hollywood, and these "common" films, he won't let anyone touch The Silmarillion (they couldn't even mention the names of the other Istari in first Hobbit film since their names are from the books Christopher still holds the rights to).They will need to wait until his passing, when the property is passed on to his children, then Middle-earth will be have a chance again to be adapted for film.

Ol' Chris is a total Debbie-Downer LOL

That's really a shame. On the one hand I can see him guarding his father's work given the abysmal original Hobbit film (the one where Smaug looked like a big orange cat), but I think there is a way to handle it. Maybe he can have final say on how the films are portrayed, etc. there is always a solution.
