    now comic book movies are made by people who do and we have a whole universe of marvel movies
    And some comic book movies completely flop, even if they are in well known universes. Having a person that isnt old isnt what you need for a good movie, nor was it an actual contributing factor to a movie's success.

    Anyways, I have low expectations for this movie, and will be pleasantly surprised if it ends up with a metacritic or rottentomatoes score above 60

    they shouldnt have waited this long. so many people are already quitting the game and losing interest. the story better be good and do old fans proud.

    I don't think we will ever see this movie come to see the light of day.

    100% expected, big projects like massive movies always blow out and we're still a long way off.

    too many star wars fans..., its not as big as a whole on the cinemas, only the fan base hypes it ;/

    they can easily release this around then, they must have other reasons, im betting more on metzen input, though i think the director said he wanted more control over it, its most likely that, this was at the panel at blizzcon.

    When the movie finally comes out will WoW still be relevant?

    no surprise here, no movie wants to go against Star Wars. I was expecting them to announce it sooner though(blizzon), when Star Wars announced its release date it was obvious that Warcraft will move.

    This is a good thing. Nothing is going to be able to compete with Star Wars and moving it up isn't going to help that either. Giving it a summer release is a really good idea overall and it'll give them more time to work on it.

    I think that's the key. To have low expectations. I'm not being facetious.

    I have very low expectations about movies, games, everything. I don't get sucked into the hype. I wait until I see a movie or hear and album or play a game for myself before making up my mind. This way I am almost always pleasantly surprised in one way or another. It means the real duds really stand out, too.

    I have exceedingly low expectations for the Warcraft movie. If it gets released, isn't universally loathed by critics and fans alike, and actually makes Blizzard some kind of cash, I'll regard it as successful.


    Why do people always ask if WoW will be relevant by then? The Warcraft franchise has been around for nearly 20 years. Warcraft didn't begin with WoW, and it won't end with it, either.

    Er, isn't it WoD that's meant to be the marketing material for the film?

    Im 100% sure the reason is the Star Wars movie having the exact same premiere date!

    Perhaps not, but its not a 'WoW movie', its a Warcraft movie.

    Some people may not be able to tell the difference, but if we're talking accurately then this movie is based loosely on the events of a 20 year old game. So 'relevance' is a pretty moot point.
