Personally, I'm really hoping we don't see Galadriel for quite some time. She's one of my least favorite characters in the Ring Cycle, and had to be wrinkled backwards into the history of Middle-Earth after she was included in the the War of the Ring stories. Thranduil is another character I could do without for awhile. My distrust of him runs deep from my love of reading The Hobbit as a child.... lol. (was SOOOO glad we didn't see him as a hero in either of The Hobbit boxes)...
I would like to see more elven (Silvan) heroes though. And I have been on record here for quite some time stating that I think Celeborn should be an excellent candidate as a hero in the near future. I would like to toss an additional name out there for consideration: Cirdan the Shipwright. One of the oldest and wisest elves living during the time of the WOTR.
I know that that there isn't as much of a story built around those two compared to Galadriel now (to draw theme and strenghts/abilities from), but I think there are some very strong possibilities for those two. I think a lot of people were surprised that Elrond didn't provide some form of Elven bonus. But I think his ability fits him perfectly, and is hardly crippling. Celeborn, however, as Lord of Lothlorien, would be the PERFECT candidate to introduce some sort of (Silvan) Elven trait bonus. Perhaps a healing/hit-point bonus (to keep those Mirkwood Runners alive longer!)...
And I think it would be great to see Cirdan out there, simply because I'd relish the thought of how they would do his artwork, simply because he was one of the rare elves that actually grew a beard (perhaps it's a petty reason for me... lol). But I think that as the bearer of Narya, which he later wisely gave to aid Gandalf, that he could have some sort of Istari bonus that focused on making Radagast and Gandalf 2 more playable (let's be honest... most of us still use the core Gandalf. He's just too damn good). Not to mention that he should also be in the running to be a target for Narya along with Gandalf whenever they get around to creating that artifact in the game.
