I don't mind seeing more Gale in MJ1&2 as long as they show him being bloodthirsty and his really troubling war tactics. I really hope they show how reprehensible his plans are.

Unless this trailer had a shot of Gale humping Katniss on the ruins of District 12, I don’t mind any of it. It’s canon. He’s supposed to be a heavy presence. I still can’t understand why there was such an uproar yesterday lol. 

Yes, there’s been a lot of Gale visibility in these trailers, but I don’t get anything from it besides that he’s there and he helps fight - all of this is canon.  But even with Gale beside Katniss and Peeta at the Capitol, just the trailer itself has successfully made it obvious that Peeta is the one that Katniss loves and longs for.  He is obviously her mission.  That is perfectly clear in <2min.  I’m confident the 2 hr movie will do the same.

That said, I’m not certain the films will adequately show Gale’s faults because I’m still not certain they even consider his fighter attitude as being a fault in the first place.  So many people are drawn to his “tough guy” character because we’re all so trained to value those qualities.  I hope that they do show it as his downfall, so that people will actually understand the commentary this series makes on war. And ultimately why Katniss makes the choice she makes.

After having seen Catching Fire and now the full trailer for Mockingjay, The Hunger Games really seems out of place.  Of course, I understand that the storyline builds up, so THG wouldn’t be as “epic”, but man… it really pales in comparison to its sequels.  It just seems so watered down.  Can we petition to have Francis Lawrence redo it? :P
