This new image of Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark on the Catching Fire set has surfaced, and boy does he look beat up! It makes me afraid about what he’ll look like post-hijacking in Mockingjay. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to handle it!

Many sites are claiming this is a Mockingjay set photo, but it isn’t – you can tell because Peeta is still wearing his locket, which he gives to Katniss near the end of Catching Fire. She’ll be wearing it in Mockingjay: Part 1! Check out the full image below:

    Maybe Katniss gave it back to Peeta to help him try and remember who he is.

      Could be! We’re doubtful though.

      I agree with MOCKINGJAY being the origins. and here is why number one Francis Lawrence had absolutely nothing to gain from getting P to a black tie at the cornucopia I understand they had a fist fight so on and so forth but it did not come into the movie number 2 he could have been given a locket by Katniss to remember himself that is 100 percent likely I do understand why people say it’s from catching fire but the beauty of Mockingjay dotnet writer can me and us is that can meet and I are all people who do not know and we all are guessing and none of us knows more than the next person.

    I’m actually leaning towards Mockingjay because of the injuries. Peeta has a scratch on his face during most of his Arena scenes in Catching Fire, and I don’t remember a black-eye.

    There are a lot of possibilities where Peeta could be wearing the locket in Mockingjay. Well, okay, not a lot, but at least a few. And maybe Josh just really likes that locket. :)

    I was almost convinced this was from Mockingjay when everyone was posting that it was. And of course I was totally curious as to why he would have the locket. But, I now truly think this is from the set of Catching Fire. Someone on Twitter or Instagram pointed out that if you look at the background it looks like the cornucopia, and that the bruises and burn on his neck/chest are probably from the scene where he was hit by the force field. It is a good pic, though!

    he could have been given a lock remember himself that is 100 p understand why people say it’s the beauty of Mockingjay dotne is that can meet and I are all pe and we all are guessing and non than the next person. my comp answer is that this is absolutely however it may be that it is sho in the beginning of Mockingjay maybe he’s still in his suit with shoulder and stuff when he get kidnapped and he’s still in his a exactly the same as he did in Ca shows his kidnapping when it s inside the hard work out maybe Mockingjay make no mistake th however they may have had to he’s still in his catching fire stuf him think that’s closer maybe. I hit the nail on the head
    maybe he’s wearing locket to co.fuse us about pic on purpose.

      ….Is this even English?

      • Katniss Mellark

        oh I can’t you precious finding someone sweetness pointing it out and trying to smear it all over the comment board well my dear if you have to know I have a muscle disorder and it hurts for me to type so I use the voice typer I do apologize it mess your day up so much for me to have a few wrong words in my comment even though my point came across pretty clear

        • Everlark

          Not trying to be insensitive, but your point really didn’t come across very clearly. When I use voice typers I tell the machine when i want to put in punctuation, and I find that really helps. Just say “period” when you want a “.” and “comma” when you want a “,”. The only thing it doesn’t work well with is quotation marks. And you didn’t have to be rude to the person who left you the comment; he/she clearly would have had no way of knowing you were using a voice typer.

          • Katniss Mellark

            TWO WEEKS LATER CAN WE BE DONE WITH THIS NOW? HONESTLY…I WOULDBE NEVER POSTED ON HERE IF I THOUGHT TWO WEEKS LATER ILD BE TOLD HINTERS ON HOW TO TYPE BASED ON ONE BAD POST WHICH WE CANT EDIT OR DELETW. OR ATLEAST I CANT SEE HIW.

    It came from Jen’s friend’s (private) instagram when they were filming in Hawaii. Someone just decided this week was the best time to start post all of Jen’s friend’s private pictures.
