Foster reveals Warcraft character

Ben Foster has spilled the beans about his character in the upcoming Warcraft movie.

The Kill Your Darlings star told IGN he will be playing someone called Medivh in director Duncan Jones' big screen adaptation of the video game.

"He's a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer," said the actor.

"He came up in a time protecting an area, and the way he protected this area was through magic. As peace returned to this land he took a break. He hung up his staff, so to speak, or let his guns get dusty. We meet him as his friends are returning asking for his help in a battle."

Ben also promised fans that the movie would be "one helluva 3D event", praising visual effects firm Industrial Light And Magic.

"The way that they're pushing motion-capture - I just saw some of the test footage - it's unlike anything I've ever seen. It's performance-capture. It pushes it to the next level," said the actor, whose own Warcraft alter-ego isn't a performance-capture character.

Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Rob Kazinsky will also star in Warcraft, which will be released in 2016.
