Joke or Tease? Duncan Jones Hinting Warcraft III Arthas Movie?

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft Film, World of Warcraft News

Recently, the Empire Magazine had the awesome opportunity to show the first onstage behind-the-scenes photo of the Warcraft movie.

Last night, however, Duncan Jones posted the same photo shown in Empire Magazine with a different image on his computer monitor. Duncan Jones tweeted: “Kind of glad @empiremagazine touched up that behind the scenes picture before they published it.”

Duncan is kidding that the live action seen on his monitor in that Empire Magazine photo was photoshopped to look as if he was shooting that scene, but that in reality he was actually playing Warcraft III. Duncan shows in that tweet the same photo — but playing Warcraft III.

However, with Duncan Jones it is extremely difficult to figure out whether he was truly kidding, or if he is kidding+hinting.

Could Duncan Jones be hinting he plans to shoot a Warcraft III film? If so, would it be the next sequel, or would it be the third?

It’s difficult to think there wouldn’t be a Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and a Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal movie. Could he just skip all that and jump straight into a Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos movie?

Some time ago, during the casting audition calls, Production Weekly posted the description of the Warcraft Movie which cited text straight from the World of Warcraft: Arthas: Rise of the Lich King book description.

The passion of Prince Arthas would look truly great in the big screen. A young Prince who ascends into the ranks of the Paladins in the ceremony celebrated in Stormwind. His romance with Jaina Proudmoore. His dark secret as he causes the dead of his loved horse Invincible. The plague of Andorhal. The Culling of Stratholme. His quest for vengeance in Northrend. The discovery of Frostmourne. His descend into madness. That really makes a great movie.

My job is to inform and to give you two or more possible options. What do you think? Was Duncan Jones kidding, or was he hinting a Warcraft III movie? — source
