Henry Cavill‘s post-Superman/post-Watcher career has already begun being defined. According to THR, Cavill is set to star and produce an adaptation of Warhammer 40,000 for Amazon.
Warhammer 40,000 is a widely popular tabletop war game set 40,000 years into a pretty crazy future where humanity finds itself at war with aliens and mutants across the universe. Cavill has made it known in the past that he loves the game and has teased fans about his potential involvement, including recently in an interview with The Nerdist where he declared his favorite army and later name-dropped a character from the game that fans have been hoping he’d play: The Emperor of Mankind.
As THR points out, the deal has not been sealed quite yet, though the potential for Warhammer 40,000 to become a multi-season sci-fi series is a strong selling point for Amazon.
