Smaug In THE HOBBIT, When Will He Appear?
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch reveals exactly when the immense, greedy dragon will show up in the trilogy prequel to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings saga.
In an interview submitted to Benedict Cumberbatch fansite Cumberbatchweb, a sliver of information was shared that reveals exactly how much Smaug you'll be getting in the first two Hobbit films. Said Cumberbatch on Smaug's screentime---
"I think my eye might open at the end of the first film and then you’ll get the rest of me in the second."
Keep in mind, this information was shared before the The Hobbit was transformed from a two-part tale to a trilogy. Peter Jackson may decide to move footage around and with Smaug being such an integral component of the story, if footage is indeed changed, it would likely be to move the first appearance of Smaug to the second film.
