All cheer for Henry Cavill again as the Superman actor has all geared up to mark his return with Amazon’s Warhammer 40000. Yes, you are not daydreaming. The British actor, mainly known as Superman, has pulled his shocks up after being axed from Netflix’s The Witcher and Superman’s new reboot movie. And, this time, not just in a starring role but also as an executive producer for the Games Workshop’s miniature wargame production, Warhammer 40k. Just the day after Henry announced his official exit from James Gunn’s Superman franchise, he left his fans completely dumbstruck with another surprising but elated news of his partnership with Natalie Viscuso.
Ideating more about his upcoming Amazon project, Henry Cavill shared an Instagram post on 16th December 2022. ‘’ For 30 years, I have dreamt of seeing a Warhammer universe in live action. 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. Partnering with Natalie Viscuso at Vertigo has been a blessing; without her, we might not have found the perfect home at Amazon. 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 endeavor to bring you something fantastic that is, as of yet, unseen.
Our first steps are to find our Filmmaker/Creator/Writer. Watch this space, my friends.
For The Emperor!, Henry wrote in his post.
And, while he expressed his partnership with Natalie Viscuso as a stroke of luck, he also went on to complement the streaming platform Amazon calling it his second home. The video footage Henry Cavil shared on his post reveals the official logo of Warhammer 40000, which is still in the hunt for a showrunner and filmmaker to bring Henry’s ideas to life. As soon as Henry dropped this news through his Instagram handle, a flurry of comments popped on the post, praising the actor’s smart move.

Why is Henry Cavill not Returning as Superman?
In October 2022, when Henry Cavill Superman made a surprise cameo in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, it left his fans anticipating his large appearances in future Superhero films. After all, Man of Steel entering Black Adam’s end-credit scene can’t be a small twist. After the movie’s release, Henry Cavill assured audiences he would wear the Superman suit again. On one side, Henry’s confirmation of his Superman appearance made us dance on the Seventh cloud, and his December Instagram post confirming his exit from the franchise made us speechless.
‘’I have just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran, and its sad news, everyone. I will, after all, not be returning as Superman. After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life. The changing of the guard is something that happens. I respect that. James and Peter have a universe to build. I wish them and all involved with the new universe the best of luck and the happiest of fortunes.
For those who have been by my side through the years…………we can mourn a bit, but then we must remember Superman is still around. Everything he stands for still exists, and the examples he sets for us are still there! My turn to wear the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for never will. It’s been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards’’, wrote Henry in his Instagram post.
As Henry Cavill Superman bids farewell to the DC world, he’s been constantly questioned about why he is leaving Superman. While many anticipated it as a drift between Henry and James Gunn, many assumed as DC’s new twist. While the British actor never stated the reason, filmmaker James Gunn took the step to explain why Henry Cavil is not returning as Superman.
James Gunn explained that the new Superman movie would emphasize the younger version of Superman, requiring a fresh face in the blue suit. He tweeted-
Among those on the slate is Superman. In the initial stages, our story will focus on an earlier part of Superman’s life, so the character will not be played by Henry Cavill.
Later on, James also assured Henry’s fans that this wasn’t the actor’s last appearance in DC Universe. Despite Henry Cavill Superman bidding adieu here, there are still many ways we can welcome him again. He re-tweeted: But we just had a great meeting with Henry, and we’re big fans, and we talked about several exciting possibilities to work together in the future.
