Necromancer Revealed in 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies'

10 November 2014 1:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

TheOneRing.net's official Facebook page has posted our first look at the Necromancer in The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which brings this beloved Middle Earth trilogy to a close on December 17. The image comes from the upcoming companion book The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Official Movie Guide.

In 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, this mysterious Necromancer was haunting Dol Guldur, which we have come to learn is actually Sauron, before he took his form as a giant flaming eye in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing the Necromancer/Sauron in The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, who is seen in this image holding what is believed to be one of the Palant&#237r seeing stones, which is used to tempt Saruman. Take a look at this image below, »
