Blizzard’s semi-annual convention is happening in Anaheim this weekend, and this afternoon they revealed new footage from Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie. A year ago, when the movie was revealed at the last BlizzCon, it was still set to be released up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015. Universal grew a brain, delayed it until 2016, and now the focus can be on the movie as it’s no longer under the shadow of Star Wars.
For a long time, there have been rumors about who the cast would be playing. Today at BlizzCon, Duncan Jones confirmed who is playing who in the film:
- Travis Fimmel is playing the Human hero Lothar.
- Toby Kebbell is the Orc hero Durotan.
- Ben Foster is Medivh.
- Daniel Wu is Guldan.
- Rob Kazinsky is Orgrim.
- Clancy Brown is Blackhand.
- Dominic Cooper is King Llane of Stormwind.
- Ruth Negga is Lady Taria, Queen of Stormwind
- Ben Schnitzer is Kadgar
- Paula Patton is Garona.
We’ve had most of the cast list for a while, but now we have characters to go with the names. Clancy Brown as Blackhand? I need to see this movie right now!
