Then he has been vital in the creation of characters like Thanos from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now, on the way to the two decades of the first films, it is surely a good time to revisit them, but in what order to do it? Considering that the Hobbit trilogy, which serves as a prequel and tells us the story of Bilbo Baggins, has been released since 2012, the list expands to six films … for now.

Bayona, among other filmmakers. In addition, fans of the Peter Jackson film universe will have the opportunity to return to Middle-earth with a prequel in anime format. The Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrim, a film that will be directed by Kenji Kamiyama, director of Ghost in the Shell.
