American gaming publisher Wizards of the Coast has registered a trade mark in Australia for the term ‘Magic Origins’.
This comes a fortnight after the company filed trade marks for the terms ‘Dragons Of Tarkir’ and ‘Khans Of Tarkir’, and hints at new developments for the popular trading card game Magic: The Gathering.
The ‘Magic Origins’ trade mark was filed on March 4 by the US headquarters of Wizards of the Coast and a Sydney-based legal representative, Baker & McKenzie.
It definitely is not a movie.
Because the classes covered by the trade mark application include computers, video games, toys and entertainment,
It probably is the wrong people, one would assume Fox would make the registration for the movie. But I would also guess that if a movie comes out that Wizards would be wanting to sell associated product..?
I'm going with movie title. I would be happier though if it were the end of the reserved list. But yeah, movie title is my guess. By the time the movie gets produced, it may not even be named this, but what better name for a movie title than Magic Origins? X-men had an Origins, so why not Magic. BTW, if this is the case, does it suggest a plotline with Urza? I never kept up with the storyline, so I am not sure what stories there are if any from before Urza.
On a side note, whenever this movie does come out, I hope Wizards runs a special card promotion for this. Either a turn in your movie ticket stub to an LGS for a special promo card, or each Blueray/DVD comes with a promo card. It will be even better if that promo card ties into the movie. And of course best ever if that promo card is something cool like mana crypt. Not that it needs to be mana crypt, but something you can get nowhere else.

RIP Batman guy. I hope somebody picks up the slack now that you are gone. Sick children need their Batman.
And let the baseless speculation about the end of the reserved list begin =P
If it is a set of cards of some sort, its either 1) an online compilation set, or 2) a timespiral-esque throwback set with cards that are not reprints but allude to them. That said, the classes this is registered for aren't the normal Expansion set classes, are they?
