A new report has claimed that Henry Cavill is in the final stage to star and executive produce the Warhammer 40,0000 TV series for Amazon. An early morning joke ensued that this week, after James Gunn revealed that a new movie was about to star a younger Superman.

It seems that Cavill is landing on his feet though, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter that Amazon is in the final stages of acquiring Warhammer 40,000, and that the actor is attached. An official release is still unclear. While Amazon has apparently negotiated the rights to the franchise for a few years, it doesn’t know whether the franchise has any more potential buyers.
Have Henry Cavill make a Warhammer movie!
While Cavill hanging the cape for a while came out, rumors say he was going to be involved in something Warhammer related. His love of this series is as well known as his love of The Witcher at the moment, and any other potential Warhammer series would inevitably feature him at a certain time. It is worth noting that the deal with Games Workshop, which Amazon never seemed to be finalized yet, isn’t entirely clear yet, which is why none of this is still not at the moment, although it’ll almost certainly go through without any issues.
Amazon has been very busy snagging up big properties for its streaming service, as it recently confirmed that a God of War TV series will be coming to Amazon Prime sometime in the future. Laurel and his exec producer Rafe Judkins will headline the show, while The Expanse writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and the god of the war (2016) are also on board.
