Henry Cavill’s Warhammer 40,000 cinematic universe ‘is going smoothly’

A year ago, Amazon Studios announced it had acquired the rights to Warhammer 40,000 and plans to start a “Warhammer universe” with Henry Cavill Hold the role of executive producer. However, it wasn’t until today that Games Workshop officially confirmed that they had signed one “full agreement” with Amazon, “and the next phase can begin.

Warhammer 40,000 is Games Workshop’s science fiction universe used as the setting for the hugely popular tabletop game featuring the iconic Space Marines. It is a dystopian universe in which humanity strives to survive in the face of terrifying threats within and beyond the Imperium of Man.


It seems that Games Workshop and Amazon, along with Cavill, are discussing what they want to tell about Warhammer 40,000, writing the first script and then going into production. It’s unclear whether the project will start with a movie or a TV show. Games Workshop teased that it would probably do both if possible.

“All we can tell you right now is that a team of elite writers, each with a particular passion for Warhammer, are being assembled to help bring the setting and characters to life. that everyone loves on screen,” Games Workshop said in a blog post. “This renowned team will be led by Henry Cavill, who is ready to serve as executive producer – bringing his pen, sword and/or spear to the project.”


While this is certainly exciting news for Warhammer 40,000 fans, they’ll have to wait patiently first. Games Workshop has calmed the community’s excitement by saying it usually takes several years for any film or TV show to come to fruition after a contract is signed.

“Producing movies and TV shows is a huge undertaking,” said Games Workshop. “It’s not uncommon for projects to take two to three years from now before something hits the screen. However, things are going smoothly now and you can bet that we will be bringing everyone all the latest updates and exciting snippets as soon as possible.”


Currently, there is no information about who Henry Cavill might play in the Wahammer 40,000 Cinematic Universe. However, speaking to IGN in 2021, Cavill expressed interest in playing one of the Primarchs or Captain-Generals, high-ranking key figures in the Warhammer mythological universe.

At the time, Cavill, a known Warhammer 40,000 fan, appeared extremely excited about the project. “I have loved Warhammer since I was a boy, making this moment truly special for me,” I said. “The opportunity to lead this cinematic universe from its inception is an honor and responsibility. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the hard work that Vertigo, Amazon and Games Workshop have put in to make this happen. One step closer to making a lifelong dream come true.”


Henry Cavill is one of the most famous Hollywood actors in the gaming community, not just because he played the role Superman excellently, but also because Cavill is a genuine gamer. His passion was expressed excellently through his role Geralt Rivia in the TV show The Witcher. Although everything later went astray due to the screenwriter’s direction away from the original, fans still deeply appreciate Henry Cavill’s contributions. That also explains the excitement of gamers when information about him “taking charge” of the Warhammer 40,000 project was revealed. Now, with Games Workshop’s official confirmation, all we have to do is wait patiently.​
