Archers are hot heroes these days, with Hawkeye and Green Arrow nocking up deadly volleys everywhere. Now here's an unexpected glimpse of Tolkien's legendary Lake-town Bowman on stunt wires to add to the mix. Let 'em fly!

With dwarves and elves from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey sprouting up every week leading up to December's opening, a new face is always welcome. Most of the fanfare has gone to Bilbo and the rowdy band of dwarves, but a key dragon-hating archer has remained in the shadows until now. Behold the Bard!

Check out the gallant antics of Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans, Robin Hood) from Peter Jackson's New Zealand soundstage, suited up and packing a quiver of lethal arrows. Evans has revealed that the grim Bowman's character will be greatly expanded in the film from his basic Black Arrow badassery in the book.
