Sam Raimi, of Spider-
Man, is making a movie based on World of Warcraft
.

Now I'm going to make a prediction here. Are you ready? Here it is...

It will be awful.

Well, it will be awful if it's actually set in the WoW universe. If it is about the Troglodytes who spend more time in the game than they do with the outside world? That might be entertaining. Heh.

Also, slight nerd knowledge here... If it's from the perspective of humanity and the alliance, the audience is going to unwittingly be cheering on the aggressive fascist faction who are pro-slavery (and pro-genocide against anyone who looks scary and isn't a willing slave). Those orcs, trolls, and minotaurs? Yeah, they're more peaceful and freedom loving faction. Ironic, no?

Frankly, I don't think a good WoW movie is possible. The story spans 3 single player games + 1 expansion, and an enormous MMO with 2 additional expansions. It's a massive story, not to mention the fact that it's quite cheesy with no main character. This is no Lord of the Rings.

So yeah, it's gonna be HORRIBLE!
