With this Warcraft movie supposedly moving ahead under Duncan Jones I was thinking about things I would like to see. I'm not really talking about specific characters, especially since they seem to be aiming for a unique story line within the Warcraft universe. Other than that, though, what sorts of Warcraft stuff are you hoping to see translated to epic big screen live action CGI goodness? They don't necessarily have to appeal to broad audiences, this is strictly for Warcraft enthusiasts who would appreciate the homages. For example, you might want to see Ashbringer referenced, even though it would be nothing more than a 'cool sword' that is quickly overlooked by unfamiliar viewers.
A few personal wishes:
- Bladestorm. An epic warrior character, fully geared in armor and a massive greatsword, winds up with ferocious anger and swings around and around at his enemies.
- Chain Lightning
- Hyacinth Mccaw. Just sitting on someone's shoulder or something, as a funny little Easter egg.
- Ice Block. This could come across as dorky to some of the more action-oriented viewers, but I think it'd be a riot to see a mage-inspired character hide in an ice block just in time to deny a brutal swing from some massive axe.
There's others, too, like Tree of Life, maybe Warglaives if the reference made sense, maybe one of the cooler mounts. What do you guys think?
