You do realize Evilcake that the in-game Boomsticks are tied to that same reference (because Blizzard loves them some pop culture referencing), right? All that was being said here was that the look was similar to that one. Though I personally think that just from the image, the barrel looks way too short, to be that particular Boomstick.
Don't know that this counts as an easter egg ... but when Lothar loses his boots in Karazhan, my wife leaned over and whispered "pay your repair bill man!" =)
While a list like this is cool, I feel like it doesn't make much sense as of now, when you can't post screenshots from the movie to compare with. Would like to see this list revisited when it's not just screenshots from the game.
In the scene with King Lane asking the other nobles to unite, you will see one human with the Gilneas crest and another with the Lordaron Crest
Not sure if its really an easter egg but after khadgar resists the fel and the explosion comes from karazhan i noticed that it turned deadwind pass from a lush forest into the dark dead environment we see today.
I'm pretty sure Lor'themar got a little cameo, too - at the end, there's one elf among the Quel'thalas delegation with a big scar over his left eye.
During the fighting right after the portal to Stormwind closed, you can clearly see Bladefist stabbing a few grunts.
I don't know if it counts as an easter-egg, but I noticed that during some scenes in the background of Elwynn Forest you can see the border between Elwynn and the Burning Steppes. It's accurately represented as in-game, with the mountains that suddenly change color in between.
Kargath's cameo and the fishing bobber are what done did it for me.
You can actually see Metzen in the movie. While the close up of him may have been cut. When they do a short cut to the market you see him and his turban. He turns around just as they pan to the market. I was watching when they showed that to see if it was included and you catch a quick glimpse.
How tf can they cut one of the creators of Warcraft out of the final cut? I also loved how grommash and kilrog looked in the movie, they looked #$%^ing epic!
The book Khadgar picks up in the Karazhan library is the Book of Medivhhe also says "interesting choice" when finding the book after burning all of Khadgar's research referring to the book
Pretty sure that the person we saw in the cube was not actually Alodi, but really Medivh's mother. The fact is the person was a woman and not a half elf, who is also corrupted by the fel energy, just as Medivh's mother was possessed by Sargeras. Also the book shown is not his spell book seeing how he 'borrowed' it from the library, but pretty sure that book in question is the actual book we need to find to get hints about the Pillars of Creation in the next expansion.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but seeing specific Easter eggs listed here, I'm starting to get more excited than ever. I can't wait!
when blackhands ambush party attacks lothars troup in a forest (including launching a horse) and has to scatter due to medivh being all badass and stuff, you'll see durotan flee on a stolen horse. it looks ridiculously out of scale compared to his massive orc body - which is a reminiscence to how races (in game) with a more huge scale (for example tauren) would sometimes look as though their weight should crush a mount with a more tiny scale (for example a blood elve's walking bird) when sitting upon said mount.i'd say if this isn't meant to be an easter egg it will at least be a reference.----another thing that struck my eyes was a sketch of a male troll head. it can be seen among the "studies" of khadgar as he's trying to make sense of the book he snatched from the library of medivh.----
