The World of WarCraft movie has reportedly been put on hold as director Sam Raimi (of Spider-Man fame) seeks to first adapt Disney’s upcoming reboot for The Wizard of Oz; A prequel called “Oz: The Great And Powerful” starring Robert Downey Jr.

However, already World of Warcraft wasn’t set to start production until after Spider-Man 4. Since Raimi is no longer directing Spider-Man 4 (which is now a complete reboot of the franchise), it makes sense that he tackle another film to fill the void.

That’s probably good news, as last June Raimi stated that the script for the WOW-film still needed some work done on it, so this will hopefully give them more time to flesh everything out and get all the puzzle pieces together before they start filming the epic.

This trailer gives you an idea of what kind of film could be made from World of Warcraft.
