10 Plot Ideas For Duncan Jones' World Of Warcraft Movie  | 3. The Fall Of Arthas
3. The Fall Of Arthas

This arc has a distinctly Star Wars/Darth Vader vibe. Heroic paladin-prince Arthas Menethil and his special-ladyfriend mage Jaina Proudmoore attempt to curb the spread of a plague that turns people into zombiefootsoldiers of the evil Scourge, led by The Lich King (formerly orc shaman Ner’Zhul). But along the way, Arthas slaughters a bunch of infected townspeople, burns his mens’ boats so they can’t retreat from a battle with demons, becomes fully corrupted by a runesword, kills his father King Terenas, turns into a Death Knight and, eventually, fuses with Ner’Zhul’s spirit to become the new Lich King. Er, hooray?

It could be like the great, short-lived series Ace Lightning. More

2 Leeroy Jenkins
That was absolutely hilarious hearing all those nerdy guys sitting in their mom's basement planning this military-style attack that they've failed with before (waaayyy too much time on their hands, lol). Then old Leeroy just goes "fuck it", goes in and all the nerdy guys are droning: "oh fuck...oh shit...oh god." More

They should so make that into a film, the tagline could be 'At least I have chicken.' I don't know anything else about the game other than Leeroy Jenkins made me chuckle, oh and the South Park episode is funny too More

4 I am worried
There is a 99% chance that this film will be a huge budget box office failure... and WoW fans will get even more grief from average joes! More

5 Rather dissapointed ...
... that Duncan Jones has picked up the gauntlet for this. I've enjoyed his work to date (Moon, Source Code), and it would be a great shame for him to get tarred if this turns out to be a turkey. There's an army of players out there just waiting to pan this movie. Still, who knows? He may pull it off... better yet he may change his mind! More

Here's a suggestion Blizzard - if you're adamant about making this movie, get your ridiculously talented bods to do the whole thing in CGI. That way, you keep the look of the games and we don't end up with actors in awful prosthetics. As a side note though, I think making a film about WoW is a rubbish idea. More
