Following the poster reveals for Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) and Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) earlier this week, fans have voted for Orlando Bloom's Legolas to be featured on the latest character poster from The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.
Although Legloas does not appear in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit novel, Orlando Bloom's archer elf Legolas returned in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, in a significant role as the son of Elven king Thranduil (Lee Pace) in their Mirkwood realm. Fittingly, last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug showcased Legolas' burgeoning relationship with another character who was not in the original novel and created specifically for the movie, Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel.Read More
While Orlando Bloom, who starred as Will Turner, helped turn Pirates of the Caribbean into one of cinema's biggest franchises, starting with Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl in 2003 and continuing on in 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the actor was suspiciously absent from Disney's 2011 adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. That may not be the case with Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (tentatively titled Dead Men Tell No Tales), as the actor reveals he's had discussions about returning, and is open to the idea.
If he does return for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, it will be the second big franchise that Orlando Bloom has come back to. He reprised his Legolas role from Lord of the Rings in last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and will once again play the archer elf in this December's The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.Read More

The actor stated. Orlando Bloom had only one film credit to his name when he landed the role of Archer Elf Legolas in The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. This came two years before he set sail as Will Turner in Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl. Later this year, he will reprise his role as Legolas for the final time in The Hobbit: There and Back Again. And he wrapped his first Broadway role in Romeo and Juliet this past December.Read More
First introduced on screen in 2001's The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Orlando Bloom's Legolas, the bow-wielding elf, quickly became a fan favorite. He won over audiences with some truly remarkable skills on the battlefield, which fans have lovingly dubs the 'holy shit!" moments of the first trilogy, and he will be remembered for his dexterity and precision in Dwarf-tossing for as long as fandom exists. Now, for the first time since 2003's The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King, the actor is returning to his most famous role, appearing this December in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
He will be arriving alongside Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, a new female elf character created specifically for the movie by its director and co-writer Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh. But as you may have noticed in the most recent trailer, this shouldn't be considered heavy lifting. Tauriel seems capable of standing side-by-side Legolas in battle, which will bring a certain dynamic and chemistry we've yet to see in this new prequel trilogy.Read More
