Got some pictures of Mark Hildebrandt practicing sword fighting with Robert Goodwin for his role of Varian Wrynn in WoW movie. The pictures are not too good in quality so I didn’t put the “click for bigger” option 🙂
With all the Marvel and DC films coming out lately, not to mention the new Superman and Batman films on the horizon, the popularity of superhero movies is at an all time high. Everywhere audience members turn another mainstream actor is gracing the screen in a costume that showcases a massive, ripped physique that mirrors their comic counterpart. Leave it to the studios to ensure that reality will always imitate art.
But with all the muscle and power on the screen, an audience member has to wonder: just how does an actor like Gerard Butler, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, or even Mickey Rourke or Robert Downey Jr. transform themselves into the larger-than-life heroes so many have followed in the pages of best selling comics and graphic novels.
TheMoviePool: Hey, Mark. With the intensity of your upcoming schedule, we’re glad you could take some time to talk with us today.
Mark Hildebrandt: No problem, thank you for having me.
Movie work is heating up in last few weeks. After little info coming out about project now we finally get some real info.
Few days ago Mila Kunis was connected with the movie and it seems that Liam Neeson could be joining her, as it is believed that he is in talks for a role in the film. It is expected that Liam will not be playing any of the lead characters in World of Warcraft movie but will instead have a smaller role, with the potential of playing a bigger part in any future sequels.
Mark Hildebrandt’s suggested role as Varian Wrynn has been leant weight by the fact that he has been training with film fighting trainer Bob Goodwin. Goodwin trained Christian Bale for the Batman Begins movie and is believed to be in charge of training the World of Warcraft stars.

Interesting video from a few months ago with Michele Morrow (few post down, she wants to play Sylvanas) playing with Frostmourne and also interesting thing in the video at the end you can see Mark Hildebrandt in behind talking with someone. So there Michele who wants to be in WoW movie playing Sylvannas and Mark who is in the movie playing Varian – first it was rumors, then after info on the Robert Goodwin site its kinda fact cuz that website has credibility and nobody asked them to remove it, so its pretty sure Mark Hildebrandt is signed for the movie.
Upcoming actor-screenwriter Mark Hildebrandt has discovered his warrior within through film fighting training with Bob Goodwin. In about four sessions per week for well over the past year, Mark has honed stunt fighting skills that he plans to put to good use in major lead roles in a truly impressive slate of upcoming feature films.
With Bob Goodwin as his trainer, Mark has mastered medieval weaponry skills in preparation to play the co-lead role of Sir Lancelot in the upcoming film “Excalibur.” Bob has also trained Mark in swords, knives, and Filipino Kali, further strengthening his skills to play the lead role of King Varian Wrynn in another upcoming feature film, “Warcraft”
But wait, there’s more, like playing the role of Mark Antony opposite Angelina Jolie in James Cameron’s upcoming feature “Cleopatra,” and talk of the potential as a consideration as replacement if Tom Hardy is truly out as the lead character Max Rockatansky in “Mad Max Fury Road.”
