Why Gil-galad is in the Film
Louie V.

In response to Virginia H.; it may be that Gil-Galad is present in the film because he headed the Elven host in the assault on Mordor at the end of the Second Age. Elrond was his standard-bearer and stood by after Sauron was subdued and Isildur took the Ring. Beren and Luthien were not there. So perhaps we'll see what happened at the end of the S.A. instead of just hearing about it.
