Henry Cavill Sets Up TV Role In ‘Warhammer’ After ‘Superman’ Exit

Just one day after saying goodbye to Clark Kent and the “Superman” movies, actor Henry Cavill has found his next job.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former “Witcher” star will star in the upcoming TV series “Warhammer 40,000” for Prime Video.

The streaming platform is reportedly in final talks with maker Games Workshop to adapt the beloved board game franchise.

In addition to starring, Cavill will serve as an executive producer.

The “Justice League” star is a longtime “Warhammer” fan.

“I have been involved in the world of ‘Warhammer’ for 40,000 years. No, well, it depends how you look at it,” he joked in an October interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz, referencing the game’s title. “But since I was probably 10 years old. So long”.

“Warhammer 40,000” debuted in the 1980s as a board game in which players move miniature warrior figurines across a battlefield to defeat their opponents.

The game is set 40,000 years in the future on war-torn worlds as human civilization faces off against ruthless aliens, demons, and magical beings.

Cavill has also spoken about painting “Warhammer” figures, which he told Horowitz that he proudly displays for guests.

Participating in a live-action “Warhammer” series has been something the actor has thought about, although he’s not sure which character he would play.

“There are many characters from the ‘Warhammer’ universe that I want to be. But really I can only be one, because once I’m one, I can’t be others,” he said in a 2021 interview with IGN. “So if it ever happened, if there was some live action, you’d have to be very aware of that.”

On Wednesday, Cavill confirmed that he will no longer play Clark Kent in the DC Extended Universe, as new DC bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran look to redefine their vision for the movie studio.

“After being told by the studio to announce my comeback in October, before he was hired, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life. The changing of the guard is something that happens,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “I respect that. James and Peter have a universe to build. I wish them and everyone involved in the new universe the best of luck and the happiest of fortunes.”

Earlier this year, Cavill also stepped down from his duties as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s fantasy hit “The Witcher” and announced on Instagram that Liam Hemsworth would be taking over the role.
