Ben Foster’s Role in Warcraft Film Adaptation Revealed


Ben Foster, who is confirmed to be part of the cast for Duncan Jones’ upcoming Warcraft film adaptation, has recently spoken about the character he’s going to play, while also managing to reveal some key plot details along the way:

“The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh,” says Foster. “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.”

Foster also explained how Jones managed to adapt the franchise into a movie’s narrative:

“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,” he continues. “It’s asking, hopefully, an important question of, where do we limit our compassion for what we consider to be the bad guys?”
