    IMHO, the first movie should take place with the Horde and Alliance at each others throats like it should be, but working together against another evil. This way both Horde and alliance can get story with either one being singled out as a good or bad side. Because lets face it neither faction are angels when it boils down to it

    It's starting off with the First War. And let's not go there with either side not being angels. Bias aside we know who are good people and those that are...not so good and are..a bit more complex.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    are you saying a song of ice and fire doesn't show the "villains" as actual people? because you're dead wrong.
    Blue text indicates sarcasm or joking.

    1990s :P

    In the 1980s the big villain was the Space Invaders or the other Pong paddle. Or those trucks that ran over Frogger.

    Oh and Donkey Kong, now that one did get reformed into a hero.

    This is silly.

    We've known since Blizzcon that the movie will focus on the First War, with Durotan and Lothar as the protagonists. I suppose stuff will be stretched to get the orcs where they need to be story wise without having to show draenei, and on the human side, with glossing over Medivh's crucial role. I sure hope not, though. They still have almost 2 years to go before it's released, so it better be beyond what we could possibly expect (as far as a Warcraft movie; I know all too many of you have unrealistic expectations about anything Blizz does).
    These forums are just a sad echo chamber, and MMO-C is more like an echo outhouse, but fortunately (or maybe I'm just lucky), most people you actually meet in game are not like that.

    1. Durotan and Lothar were mentioned to be characters within the film, not necessarily the protagonists.
    2. While the inclusion of these two characters strongly implies the story is set during the First War, we have yet to see an official plot synopsis/press release detailing the story of the film. It could have a section dedicated to Medivh for all we know.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    I was mostly referring to the White Walkers, which are the closest thing GoT has to the alien invasion Warcraft orcs were.

    yea, u did not read the interview it seems. he said that if you are planning to make a movie for just the fans of the game you are doomed from the start, so the two opposing sides are not as clear to everyone who is going to see the movie. the only fault i can see here is the choice of words (tribes instead of factions)

    The television show has not introduced us to the white walkers formally yet. What we have seen is not black and white and does not say whether they're invading or coming to destroy. They simply exist at the moment, they aren't "the bad guys" ... yet.

    Fair enough, forget what I said about GoT. My point was that the usual fantasy story we see in movies doesn't show why the bad guys are what they are, and if some of them disagree with their kind, which is why 'a story about two tribes/factions' needs to be said when advertising this movie.

    Well, to be fair...in WC1 they were pretty much one-dimensional villains. We just had the opportunity to play as them. Blizzard didn't start to write in the whole demonic possession arc until Warcraft Adventures, which was scrapped and its lore rolled into WC3.

    Durotan never existed in Warcraft 1, so it's absolutely fair to say that Orcs today are absolutely not the 1-dimensional villains as they were in the early 90's. It's been retconned to the point where even Doomhammer, the Backstabber, is an honourable leader through-and-through.

    I guess it depends on who you are talking about when you say "villains" since he might be refering to the white walkers and not the human "bad guys".

    Have you actually seen or read game of thrones? Game of thrones is hailed for, among a lot of others things, its realism in characters. The way every character has both good and "evil" sides.
