We're willing to bet that when it was announced that Blizzard
gave the go-ahead to Legendary Pictures
to help them create a World of Warcraft
movie, intense arguments erupted among the faithful. The camps are probably equally divided between "Hell, it's about time
" and "Worst. Idea. Ever.
" There is some reason to hope, given that it's being co-written by Blizzard Vice President of Creative Development Chris Metzen. Then again, description of the main character as a "kick-ass human" makes it sound as though it's going to go in a direction that favors a lowest-common-denominator approach, which doesn't always work out for the true fans.
So, what will make this movie stand out for you? Adherence to canon? Exclusion of known actors in favor of relative unknowns? Hot gnome-on-gnome action?
