Along with the news that we would be getting a third installment of The Hobbit, several registered domain names also leaked giving us two possible titles for the movie. They were Riddles in the Dark and The Desolation of Smaug, both fantastic titles (the latter more so in my opinion), but now New Line Cinema have registered a domain for another title, which is definitely more epic.
The One Ring have exclusively learned that that is the supposed title of the new movie, and Riddles in the Dark is seemingly out of the running. The Battle of Five Armies is the epic battle between elves, men, dwarves, goblins and more. It was supposed to take place at the end of The Hobbit: There and Back Again, but if this is the final title it confirms that the third movie won’t be used to bridge the gap between these movies and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but rather extend the narrative. What do you think? Sound off below.
