Let me guess the ring could corrupt him but not her because Women more strong willed!!I think another thing they are going to get wrong will be the Elves themselves. Tolkein was very clear the only true difference between Elves and Men were Men had far shorter lives and thus tried to do things faster. The Elves were not some mysterious sub angelic entities imbued with innate wisdom or morality. They were just as prone to foibles and sins as the Humans. In many ways they were worse since they were often prideful and arrogant to a fault.
Especially 1st age and 2nd age Elves who were not in decline. The key thing about the 3rd age Elves is that they were tired. They'd just gotten tired of life and wanted to go to sleep. The reason they had to sail west is that if they didn't they would become wraiths. Forever tied to the fate of Arda but also unable to truly die, trapped in a quasi death until the end of time. Pretty shit circumstance.
I bet though the Elves in this will just be a retread of Peter Jackson's Elves, only with more boobs. Also, Isildur has a sister now! Go strong Woman go!
