Prophet Medivh is played by Ben Foster in the Warcraft movie  

Legendary Warcraft character, Medivah, will be in the upcoming Warcraft movie, and will be played by actor Ben Foster.

Foster spoke to IGN about the Duncan Jones film, "The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He's a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer.

"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."

Foster added that the story will display both sides of the conflict and praised the visual effects of the film. "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. It's going to be one helluva 3D event," he said.

The Warcraft movie is slated for a March 2016 release.
