    I vote no—I don’t think they’ll want to dilute Beorn’s appearance in BOFA. You can only do so many bear-man action sequences before that becomes boring.

    I also think Beorn will not be at Dol Guldor, both because of the ‘dilution’ concern Ben raises, and also because I don’t think it fits his character. He’s a loner, not a team (or Council?) player. (I always figured he showed up the BOFA not so much to aid the good guys but because he knew the goblins were gathering and wanted to prevent them from succeeding at whatever they were up to.

    No, I do not think Beorn will be at Dol Guldur. He will not show up again, until Five Armies. Beorn is not a member of the White Council, so he will not know of the attack.
