Ben Foster Reveals Details on His Warcraft Character (SPOILERS)
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.30.2014

We've heard a lot of vagueries around Duncan Jones' Warcraft film, but not a lot of details on the plot or the film itself. Now, Ben Foster is here to save the day. Foster told IGN that he's playing Medivh in the upcoming Legendary Pictures film and talked a little bit about the character's role in the film.

Medivh, for those unfamiliar with the Blizzard game franchise, is a character from the game's lore. Medivh was the last Guardian of Tirisfal, an ancient line of protectors bestowed with great powers to do battle with the agents of the demonic Burning Legion who seek to destroy any trace of order in the universe. Medivh was possessed by the demon lord Sargeras, who used the mage in his plan to conquer Azeroth and opened the dark portal alongside the orc warlock Gul'dan, allowing the Legion to begin its destruction of Azeroth. He was slain but returned later in spiritual form, manipulating events in order to arrange the formation of a last-ditch alliance between the mortal races on the continent of Kalimdor.

Check out some highlights of Foster's interview below:

On Medivh: "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."

On the film's perspective: "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?"

On the visual effects in the film: "The way that they're pushing motion-capture -- I just saw some of the test footage -- it's unlike anything I've ever seen. It's performance-capture. It pushes it to the next level. It's going to be one helluva 3D event."

On if Medivh will be performance capture: "No, mine's not, but there are interactions with a lot of characters that are. There are a lot of different kinds of creatures in this picture that I interact with."

Warcraft releases on March 11th, 2016.
