Ben Foster Discusses His Role in ‘Warcraft’
Angel from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ has stepped forward to talk about his role in Legendary Pictures’ upcoming film, ‘Warcraft.’
IGN has recently had an interview with actor Ben Foster about his role in Duncan Jones’ upcoming adaptation of the original Warcraft game, which was the precursor to Warcraft II-III and World of Warcraft. Foster, known for his roles in ‘Lone Survivor’ and ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ acknowledged that he will be playing a certain wizard who is responsible for many of the major events that occur throughout the entire Warcraft series.
There are potential spoilers below for ‘Warcraft.’
“The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He’s a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer,” Foster revealed. “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 mentions that many of the characters he interacts with are performance-capture characters, hinting that we will see Medivh interacting with both orcs and humans alike in this highly anticipated film. ‘Warcraft’ is expected to debut in theaters on March 11, 2016.
