Warcraft Film Speculation - Johnny Depp Goes Blonde ... Is He Arthas?

Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at the London Film Festival featuring a blonde hair with a very particular iconic hue.

TrackingBoard.com posted early 2013 that Warner Bros was interested in Johnny Depp for a role in the Warcraft film. Blizzplanet speculates he might be going for the Arthas role based on his blonde hue.

The Warcraft film is slated to begin on January 13, 2014. (PC, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria)

Pretty sure if Captain Jack Sparrow played Arthas WoW fans would loose it. In a bad way.

A very, very, bad way...

I say don't knock it till you've seen it. He might just be able to pull it off. Although I was hoping Sean Bean would be Arthas I mean he always dies in every movie so it's fitting right? Afterwards, he'll always have a helmet on and someone else can play The Lich King.

Isn't Arthas supposed to be young though? I could see Sean Bean playing King Terenas though or if a more active role, possibly Tirion Fordring assuming they chronicle Arthas life up until his death.

He doesn't look like an Arthas... Not at all.

Also Arthas is a very serious character not comical in anyway I dont see how he could play the roll accurately.

With the right make-up and a few touch ups with a computer they can shave years off Sean Bean on screen.

Also, This is Johnny Depp, the guy is a chameleon. I'd have faith that he can go from savvy pirate to arrogant knight. It's not like we're talking about Ben Affleck here. It's just I don't think Depp would look good in armor, also he isn't really tall enough or has the stature.

You guys haven't watched The Secret Window, have you? Dude does serious pretty good.

Instead of Sean Bean, I'd like to purpose Ethan Hawke.

It's always funny when you see a celebrity change looks.

95% of the time it's for a movie role and not because they are changing their image.

People can't tell the difference and then copy styles.

Kind of funny really.

We'll see. It's just speculation based on a January 2013 rumor and the very iconic blonde hue. That's not a common blonde hue in real life. It's sort of going on the orange spectrum as pictured in the Arthas (human) image provided in the article.

The question is ... do actors dye their hair 12 weeks before filming? I assume in 12 weeks his hair will be nigh twice long, and he will need to dye again and again to cover the dark roots.

Possible, but I'd say not probable.

Um... Mortdecai?

Can't imagine him being Arthas. Arthas was serious and at times sociopathic. A jokerster like Johnny probably wouldn't be able to handle playing that role.
NateCole  +   304d ago
Hell no. Someone like the guy that played Thor would suit.
The Great Melon  +   304d ago
Wow, you really notice that he his aging (50) when he is captured outside of a movie. Either that or he is actually trying to look gaunt for a role.
