It is different when a temple is destroyed by a terrorist attack or by a natural disaster.

Usually most of people don't feel unconfortable about things from fiction but sometimes there are enough exceptions to cause troubles.

* Drow is a word for a fantasy race, not used in the usual talking, and if my naive languange is not English you could forgive me I forget its plural isn't regular. And I dare to say in a future English-speakers will start to add S to the plural of the word drow.

* Maybe the first step for a D&D movie is a miniserie in online TV channel.

* Other option is cartoon about a mash-up of old Hasbro franchises but in a D&D version, in a world with enough arcanepunk technology to create skyships and other vehicles.
 

For a while, there was talk of doing a reboot of G.I. Joe, a MASK movie, and a D&D movie, then adding the Transformers and releasing a Hasbro crossover film featuring all of them to create a “Hasbro Cinematic Universe.” Not sure if they’ve cooled on that idea or not, but the projected timeline was years out.

The Hasbro Cinematic Universe is still happening, though that is a different thing from the D&D stuff, focused on "contemporary" stuff. Room and M.A.S.K.S. seem to be not happening right now, but G. I. Joe is still happening alongside plans to mix it with Transformers.
 


G.I. Joe and Transformers probably would fit together better, with M.A.S.K. almost a bridge between the two.

That being said, part of me would love to see an absolutely insane all-franchise mash-up.

If D&D ties into the broader Hasbro universe, I expect we would only see it in terms of Easter Eggs as far as D&D movies: an Autobot symbol on a piece of metal in the background of a wizard's lair or something like that. That being said, if there was a hobgoblin army that had a Cobra symbol on its standard, I would be greatly amused.

I don't think we will see Scarlet, Matt Tracker, and Kupp show up to team up with Elminster or anything like that...

A number of religious buildings where seen being destroyed by a terrorist attack in Mission Impossible: Fallout. If I remember correctly, that included the Vatican, St. Paul's Cathedral, and The Dome of the Rock.

And I've seen at least two churches get blown up in Doctor Who!
 

A church in a famous square in Venece was destroyed in the movie of "League of Extraordinary Gettlemen" (I loved that film, I enjoyed like a dwarf and I don't mind Alan Moore's opinion about the adaptation), and I haven't been in a cinema since 2008, and I never seen a movie of Mission Imposible with Tom Cruise. And it was really horrible, that ridiculous scene in Spain, a crazy mash-up of Spanish traditions. I neither see TV since... the year of the first season of "Heroes". I have seen only some chapters of the new Doctor Who, and it was when they met Madam Poupadour.

* Maybe in future April's Fool we will see easter eggs about Hasbro franchises in D&D worlds, for example Cybertronians as monsters or a PC race, main characters of "my little pony" like centauresses, Cobra (G.I.Joe's archienemies) like a evil faction of Spelljammer with arcanepunk vehicles, or the fogortten Inhumanoids like D&D monsters.

* In the internet age English will change by people whose naive-languange is not English. Not only by the influence of Spanish-speakers but also people with a Latin languange (French, Italian, Portuguese..). Adding s to the plural of Drow will not be a mortal sin of orthography because it is not a word used usually in the colloquial speech.
