Henry Cavill may not be returning as Superman, but he's super excited about his next role.
Following the Dec. 14 news that he would not play Clark Kent again for future Superman films, Henry has lined up his next gig: the star and executive producer for Prime Video's Warhammer 40,000, an adaptation of the science fiction war game.
"For 30 years I have dreamt of seeing a Warhammer universe in live action," Henry wrote in a Dec. 16 Instagram post. "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."
Captioned along with a video of the game's signature logo, he continued, "And having a home like Amazon will give us the freedom to be true to the massive scope of Warhammer. 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.
The heartwarming post ended with him sharing the show's "first steps," which he said is to "find our Filmmaker/Creator/Writer."
Henry's resume has made headlines quite a bit in 2022. In October, the actor announced he wouldn't be returning as Geralt in The Witcher, a role that was then replaced by Liam Hemsworth for season four. "My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season four," he wrote on Instagram at the time. "In my stead, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf."
That same month, the Superman star announced his return to the superhero role after a cameo in Black Adam. "A very small taste of what's to come, my friends," he happily shared on social media. "The dawn of hope renewed. Thank you for your patience, it will be rewarded."
Unfortunately, his return to Superman was eventually scrapped by James Gunn and Peter Safran, who now oversee DC Movies. "My turn to wear the cape has passed," Henry wrote Dec. 14 on Instagram, "but what Superman stands for never will. It's been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards."
The premiere date for Warhammer 40,000 has not yet been announced.
