Benedict Cumberbatch: Smaug will appear in second Hobbit film

Benedict Cumberbatch has a new interview with Total Film about playing Smaug in the Hobbit film, the first of which is set to come out this December – The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey.
 
Talking about using motion capture technology, Cumberbatch says, “It’s very freeing, once you put the suit on and the sensors.  I’ve never felt less encumbered, actually. And you have to be. You have to be free.  You just have to lose your shit on a carpeted floor, in a place that looks a little bit like a mundane government building. It was just me as well, with four static cameras and all the sensors. Then the boys at Weta work their magic." 
 
The second film in the planned Hobbit trilogy was named ‘Desolation of Smaug’, so it’s obvious that the main focus of the film will be Smaug, played by Cumberbatch.  He says that although you won’t really see him until the second film, you do get to spot him open an eye in the first film.  He says, “"I think my eye will open at the end of the first film, and then you’ll get the rest of me in the second."
 
Cumberbatch will also reportedly be seen as the villain in the upcoming Star Trek sequel.
