Henry set foot in the role of Superman with 2013’s Man of Steel and instantly became a hit with the audience. After that, he made quite a few appearances as Superman in DC’s films, the latest being one in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
But as James Gunn and Peter Saffran became the heads of the DCU, things started to look quite uncertain for the existing characters and actors who played them as a couple of projects got shelved. And one can say the last nail was Henry Cavill’s official announcement of the existing studio. On Friday, the actor brought a smile to his fans’ faces as he announced he is coming back with yet another exciting project.
Henry Cavill took to his Instagram account to announce that he will be starring in the Warhammer 40,000 game. He shared a short clip with the caption, “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.”
It further read, “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. Watch this space, my friends. For The Emperor!”
