Something to check forward to: Henry Cavill’s love of The Witcher 3 game meant their part as Geralt of Rivia ended up being well-suited. But the star’s next project that is potential now that he’ll no longer be playing Superman again, could be a match made in heaven: the tabletop miniature-loving king of the nerds is set to star in and executive produce a TV series adaptation of Warhammer 40,000 for Amazon.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Amazon is in final talks for the rights to the game after months of discussions with owner Games Workshop.
In addition to being a fan of all things PCs and someone who builds his own rigs, Cavill has made no secret of his Warhammer obsession. The actor showed off his miniature-painting skills on Instagram back in 2020 and famously completed Total War: Warhammer 2 six times, as six races that are different. He also showed up from the UK’s The Graham Norton Show to spell out that Warhammer is not exactly like World of Warcraft while dealing with the tabletop team’s artwork and video gaming aspects.
It’s already been a hectic weeks that are few Cavill. The actor announced he would be leaving Netflix’s The Witcher series after the third season, which airs this summer, with Liam Hemsworth taking over the role of the White Wolf. Cavill had also confirmed his return as Superman in the DC Universe movies, so it was assumed his departure from The Witcher was due to scheduling conflicts.
However, Cavill announced this week that he had been dropped as The Man of Steel following a meeting with DC Studio’s new co-chairmen, James Gunn and Peter Safran. The pair are working on a new Superman project that focuses on Clark Kent’s younger years, so* that is( will not be playing the smoothness.
Amazon’s Warhammer 40,000 show remains when you look at the extremely first stages, therefore we might see Cavill various other tasks prior to taking on Chaos Gods and Orcs when you look at the grim darkness regarding the far future.
Back in 2019, Games Workshop revealed it had teamed up with Big Light Productions to produce a live-action television series emerge the universe that is 40K. The program would be to follow Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn along with his musical organization of detectives, but we have perhaps not heard any other thing more ever since then.
