Lord of the Rings’ fans believe ‘Rings of Power’ may be the best sho 9+wing of Orcs yet

There has been the introduction of many new characters in Amazon’s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series, but also many returning characters too.


Though the series is set hundreds of years before the events of the Lord of the Rings, thanks to the longevity of some of the races we have been reacquainted with characters such as Galadriel, Elrond, and possibly even Gandalf.

But some fans are actually thrilled to see the baddies back in action and, as they believe, looking better than ever.

The orcs in Lord of the Rings were numerous, but they existed as the pawns of Sauron, easily disposable and not too hard to kill.

Though there were some notable mentions, the slightly more intelligent orc general Gothmog (or potato head as he is sometimes known by fans) from The Return of the King springs to mind, for the most part, the orcs didn’t pose too much of a threat to the skilled fighters out there.

However, in The Rings of Power, we have met with a handful of fearsome orcs in the Southlands. After the elf, Arondir, discovers the devastation at Horden he enters into the mysterious tunnels where he is pursued and captured by orcs at the end of episode two.
