Peter Jackson reveals titbits and spoilers in the latest Empire magazine. Here are some of them picked out by comicbookmovie .
Smaug will make a “fleeting appearance” in the prologue. He will “remain as liquid tongued as the book’s memorable villain (he is a character not a monster).”
The Mirkwood spider scenes will be in the second film of the trilogy The Desolation of Smaug. The spiders will have some form of “psychic communication”, which only Bilbo can hear.
The second film will also have the Necromancer in, in his stronghold of Dol Guldur.
