After exciting the general public with set pictures of Duncan Jones’ Warcraft Movie, it appears that the much anticipated video game film has entered post production: which will take a lengthy twenty months. While fanboys will not be able to see the product until March 11, 2016, the very talented Ben Foster has given us a brief insight into the film that has been shrouded in mystery.
“The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He’s a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer. He came up in a time protecting an area, and the way he protected this area was through magic. As peace returned to this land he took a break. He hung up his staff, so to speak, or let his guns get dusty. We meet him as his friends are returning asking for his help in a battle.”
Though it was revealed that the Warcraft movie would follow Durotan and Lothar in an Orcs vs. Humans origin storyline, the studio has yet to reveal whom the actors will be playing. So it was quite shocking that Ben Foster gave away his character name, Medivh, and the sorcerer’s motivation. For those who do not know the lore of Warcraft (like me), Medivh was the last Guardian of Tirisfal, which was ‘an ancient line of protectors bestowed with great power.’
