WARCRAFT Logo and Weapons Revealed at Comic-Con
While I was visiting the Legendary booth at Comic-Con, I saw that they had a logo for Duncan Jones' Warcraft along with some badass weaponry from the movie! I took a few photos of them so you can see them for yourself. They were behind some glass so there is some major glare.
The most famous of the weapons is the Doomhammer. It's called the Doomhammer because "when its owner takes it into battle, it spells doom for the enemy." The orc weapon was unleashed in the name of the Horde. They also have the Dragon Sword, and the Lion Shield, which is a symbol of the strength of Azeroth.
Warcraft stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown. There's still not much known about the movie or the story, but Foster had this to say about it a few months ago:
"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.
"What’s exciting about Duncan Jones’ take on this video game is that it shows both sides of the war. It shows both sides of a conflict, which is exciting to me. It’s not just a video game turned into a movie. It’s asking, hopefully, an important question of, where do we limit our compassion for what we consider to be the bad guys?"
We expect to see some footage from the film at the Warner Bros. panel on Saturday. We'll make sure to let you know how that is. The film itself is set to open on March 11th, 2016.
