(Pocket-lint) – Henry Cavill may no longer be Superman or The Witcher, but fans of Warhammer 40K tabletop games won’t mind: he’s going to bring the franchise to our screens.

Amazon Prime Video has signed a deal for movies and/or TV shows he will star in and executive produce, based on Games Workshop’s sci-fi universe.

Here’s everything you need to know so far.

What is Warhammer 40,000?

Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop war game that first appeared in the late 80s as a spinoff of Games Workshop’s hit fantasy series, Warhammer.

Like the original, it features orcs, demons, and elves, but is set thousands of years in the future. The different species and cultures are often at war with each other, and the Space Marines, who are the stars of it, are usually dressed in power suits and often wear huge metal boots.


Many video games have been based on Warhammer 40K and actor Henry Cavill is an avowed fan. Indeed, shortly after revealing that he would no longer be starring in the next Superman movie, he posted a statement on Instagram detailing his love for the franchise and his plans to build a “cinematic universe” for Amazon Prime Video.

Warhammer 40K release date

As Cavill himself posted, the project is still at a very early stage, with a director and other filmmakers yet to be hired.

We also don’t know if his company and Amazon plan to make a movie first, a TV series, or even both.

We will update you on the expected release date as soon as we have more details.

How to watch Warhammer 40,000

The only thing we know for sure is that Warhammer 40,000 will be exclusive to Amazon’s Prime Video service.

Warhammer 40K plot and rumors

For now, all we know is that Cavill will star in the draft. We are waiting for rumors and details about the other actors and the plot.

We guarantee there will be massive metal boots.

What else to watch/play while waiting

You can read more about the Warhammer 40,000 miniature wargame series on the Games Workshop website.

Excellent video games set in this universe have also emerged over the years, including Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. It’s available on PC and Xbox, and the best news is that you can download and play it right now as part of Xbox Game Pass.
