Henry Cavill to star in Warhammer 40k series for Amazon

Yesterday, DCU fans were devastated to learn that Henry Cavill’s time as Superman has come to an end. In addition, this is not the only important role that the star of The Man of Steel (55%) will stop playing, since at the end of October he announced his departure from The Witcher, the popular Netflix series where we saw him as Geralt de Rivia .

Although the beloved actor will no longer be a part of DC Universe or The Witcher Show, projects are not short of him and we will soon see him as the main star of a new series for Amazon. According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter (via Comic Book), Cavill will star in and executive produce a new TV show based on Warhammer 40,000, which is currently in development.

According to information from THR, Amazon is in “final talks” to acquire the rights to the game, whose owner is Games Workshop. At the moment the show does not have any designated writers or showrunners, but it is known that Vertigo Entertainment is attached as an executive producer along with Cavill.

You may be wondering, what is Warhammer 40,000? If so, we can tell you that it is a hit board game released by Games Workshop in 1987, set in a dystopian future. In this strategy game, players simulate battles using miniature models that represent soldiers, creatures, or war vehicles. Warhammer 40K is set approximately 40,000 years in the future. The story revolves around a stagnant human society, which must face aliens and supernatural creatures.
