Henry Cavill finds another franchise to join after hanging up Superman’s cape.
Henry Cavill has announced his latest project after departing Superman. He will star in a Warhammer 40,000 series for Amazon. Warhammer 40,000 is a popular tabletop game that is a top hobby for many Hollywood actors. The game is set in the grim darkness of the far future, where mighty armies clash on countless war-torn worlds, and Humanity stands alone, beset on all sides by the threats of the heretic, the mutant, and the alien. Cavill took to Instagram and made the following statement:
For 30 years I have dreamt of seeing a Warhammer universe in live-action. Now, after 22 years of experience in this industry, I finally feel that I have the skill set and experience to guide a Warhammer Cinematic Universe into life. Partnering with Natalie Viscuso at Vertigo has been a blessing beyond words, without her we might not have found the perfect home at Amazon. And having a home like Amazon will give us the freedom to be true to the massive scope of Warhammer. To all of you Warhammer fans out there, I promise to respect this IP that we love. I promise to bring you something familiar. And I endeavour to bring you something fantastic that is, as of yet, unseen. Our first steps are to find our Filmmaker/Creator/Writer.Henry Cavill
