Dominic Cooper talks about the Warcraft Movie

Actor Dominic Cooper, one of the confirmed cast for the Warcraft Movie, has sat down with an interviewer and discussed the upcoming role. He talks about the difficulty of working within a world that is already so rich in story, so well-known, and already inhabited by so many people. He says, not unfairly, that many people have probably made up their minds about certain characters already, and that that's an obstacle the producers have to overcome.

He also talks about his gaming history, referring to both WoW and Need for Speed, and tells the interviewer how he's played both games and loved them. He goes on to talk about how he couldn't find the time to be sufficiently reliable to commit time to raiding in WoW, and how he unfortunately no longer plays either. Nonetheless, it's an interesting interview, and perhaps a glimpse into the Warcraft Movie world.

Dominic Cooper added to Warcraft movie cast, speaks briefly about story

Dominic Cooper has become the latest actor to sign on for the Warcraft movie. This was rumored previously but he has now confirmed his involvement. He will co-star alongside the already announced Travis Fimmell, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Robert Kazinsky, Clancy Brown, Toby Kebbell, and Daniel Wu. Speaking to Crave Online, Cooper had the following to say about the story:
"There's a very human story at the heart of it because there's a few of us that are humans in it that are up against tribes and problematic issues that exist in the world that we exist in," Cooper said. "It's happening all over the world at the moment and you see it happening all over. People have savaged their own lands and their own environment and they're having to find a new environment in which to move into through the hostility of others."
We heard at BlizzCon from Director Duncan Jones that Warcraft will be an orcs vs. humans origin story told equally from both sides. Anduin Lothar will be the hero for the humans, while Durotan, father of Thrall, will be the hero for the orcs. Warcraft begins shooting this year in Vancouver, Canada and will hit theaters on March 11, 2016.

Dominic Cooper rumored to be joining Warcraft film cast

If you thought yesterday's cast announcement would slow down the Warcraft film rumors, you would be wrong because the rumors keep flying. Today we're hearing that Dominic Cooper -- whom you might know from Captain America or Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter -- may be joining the cast as well. And though this isn't confirmed, quite a few of the past movie casting rumors have proven true -- and, who knows, we may still see Colin Farrell joining the cast.

Still, none of the rumors have given a hint as to who's playing what, so there's still a lot we don't know about the upcoming Warcraft movie. Come on, Blizzard, can we at least get a hint?
