Amazon Studios has confirmed that it has secured the film rights to Warhammer 40,000, a board game developed by UK-based Games Workshop. The lead role will be played by Henry Cavill, best known for playing the Witcher in the Netflix series and Superman in the DC film series. The actor will also serve as executive producer. He writes about it Term.
Warhammer 40,000 takes place in the distant future. Humanity is waging an endless war with alien civilizations and otherworldly forces, resorting to the latest technologies as well as cold weapons and magic. The game was released in 1987.
“I have loved Warhammer since I was a child and this moment was really special for me. To be able to step into this early cinematic universe is a great honor and responsibility,” Cavill said.
Henry Cavill previously announced on social media that he would no longer be playing Superman in the DC Universe. He met with the new leaders of the film studio, who announced that another actor would play the role of the hero.
