The Hobbit - DOS - character poster #1

Most fans are aware that Evangeline Lilly’s character, Tauriel is not in the original story, but the filmmakers added her character in as they wanted to include a strong female presence. Plus, they wanted to also have the option of a potential romantic storyline between Tauriel and Legolas.

WHat do you think of these new posters? Who is your favorite character from The Hobbit? Do you think the filmmakers were smart to add in Tauriel to the story?
