The first official poster of the last Guardian of Tirisfal, Medivh, has been well worth the wait. Ben Foster (X-Men: The Last Stand, Lone Survivor) portrays the powerful wizard in the upcoming fantasy film Warcraft: The Beginning, and he looks spectacular.
At San Diego Comic-Con last year, Foster said the best part of playing Medivh in Warcraft was learning the physical language of how to create the spells, and we can’t wait to see the sorcerer in action come June.
The official poster of Medivh’s apprentice Khadgar was also revealed, who is portrayed by Ben Schnetzer (The Book Thief) in the film. Khadgar is hailed as one of the Alliance’s greatest heroes, and both mages play significant roles within regards to the dark portal that allows the orcs into Azeroth.
Along with the recently revealed eight character posters the mage posters showcase some of the magnificent looking characters we will be seeing when Warcraft begins to hit theatres worldwide from late May.
Based on the worldwide phenomenon World of Warcraft by Blizzard Entertainment and directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) Warcraft: The Beginning stars Australians Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar and Anna Galvin as Draka, Paula Patton as Garona, Ben Foster as Medivh, Dominic Cooper as King Llane, Toby Kebbell as Durotan, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, Rob Kazinsky as Orgrim Doomhammer and Daniel Wu as Gul’dan.
The 3D epic fantasy adventure of world-colliding conflict is written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones. The film is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production and will be released by Universal Pictures.
