Perhaps it's early in the movie, right before they started to turn green? Orgrim never drank the blood so he were probably among the last groups of orcs that turned green.

Blizz just likes brown orcs more than green orcs.

WoD is just blizzards way of launching a legion expansion after MoP Else they would be able to get rid of Azshara.

Orc Icon (War3) The Zug Zug is strong in me.

By the way, Orgrim is a Blackrock. He should be grey or geyish green.

Nor SoL, considering that they accepted brown as his pre-green colour.

Considering Blizzard can't make up their mind about the "Grey" Orc Skin tone, I really don't care at this point.

Note that the artwork from BlizzCon showed Orgrim as green:



So it's a very real possibility that he changes at some point during the movie.

However, the trailer shown does seem to imply the "good" orcs will remain brown. Durotan and Draka still have brown skin even when Draka is really heavily pregnant with Thrall.

As for grey vs. brown skin, note the Frostwolf icon on the Doomhammer; at BlizzCon they mentioned this "was not a mistake" so it sounds like Orgrim's backstory is probably getting heavily altered. I would guess he's a Frostwolf now.

It's likely that Orcs are all just brown so that the general movie audience realizes that they're all Orcs and that when they turn green they're evil.

At least he still has the Doomhammer, if not his armor. Granted it would have been ridiculous to call him Doomhammer and not have him wield the damn thing but you never know these days

If nothing has changed, yes. Metzen said so on Blizzcon 2013.

Don't take his words with a grain of salt. Use a mountain.
Admit it - you all know there will be a crossover at some point.

I'm wondering if he will gain his armor at the end of the movie. I mean it's iconic, and Thrall himself will use it one day. Maybe they give it to Blackhand.

Sudden Plot Twist: the armor is taken from a human hero on the battlefield.

Would be very odd considering how massive Orgrim is.
