Former Superman star Henry Cavill is reported to be pursuing Ana de Armas to join Amazon Studios’ Warhammer 40k series. This comes from a report from Giant Freakin Robot saying that Ana de Armas could possibly join Cavill in the new series.
After the announcement of Cavill not returning as Superman for DC Studios and leaving Netflix’s The Witcher, he didn’t wait to work on starting his next project.
Soon after, he announced that he plans to work on a Warhammer 40,000 series with him producing.
Fans of Warhammer have seen animated films through the years. Most of the movies that I know about are fan-made.
I think the biggest Warhammer 40k movie was Ultramarines which came out back in 2010 starring Terence Stamp, John Hurt, Sean Pertwee, and Steve Waddington.
But Henry Cavill’s project is the first time we may see a live-action version of Warhammer 40k. And personally, I can’t wait for it.
GFR has reported that Cavill is now talking with Knives Out star Ana de Armas for Warhammer 40k. Armas has been consistently doing impressive films for some years now.
Henry Cavill Is Possibly Recruiting Ana de Armas For Warhammer 40K
The actress has won several awards from the National Board Review, Saturn Awards, EDA Awards and several others. She has proven herself that she is a very capable actress.
It’s been a while since de Armas did any TV projects. The last time she was on TV was back in 2012 in the Spanish adventure drama Hispania, la Leyenda.
So, we wonder if she’s open to going back into working on a series. If futuristic sci-fi is something that interests de Armas, why not?
I do look forward to seeing de Armas in more action scenes in Ballerina. And if she is pushing through with joining Cavill in Warhammer 40k, it’s one more reason for me to watch the show.
Warhammer 40k is Cavill’s first project being behind the scenes working as a producer. He’s spearheading the development of the series.
We’ve heard that he’s been into the lore of The Witcher, and he wanted to keep it as close to the books (and, to some extent, the video games). It was reported he left Netflix’s The Witcher series because the filmmakers wanted to shift away from the source material.
Because of it, I can’t think of anyone as perfect as Cavill to see Warhammer 40k become a reality. With him leading the project, I can’t wait to see what he can do for the show.

Cavill has publicly shown his enthusiasm for the Warhammer 40k. It’s rare to see celebrities who are proud of this kind of particular hobby. The late Robin Williams also played Warhammer 40k and he’s a proud video gamer too.
Singer Ed Sheeran has also shown that the game is one of his favourite pastimes. Sherran even showed pictures of himself painting a space marine.
Warhammer 40k has a long and rich history which started with Games Workshop. The first edition rulebook for the miniature game came out back in 1987. It’s currently in its ninth edition, which came out in 2020.
The game is set in a distant future where humans, aliens and monsters are all at war with each other. The franchise has already spawned other types of genres and media like novels, role-playing games, other forms of tabletop games and video games.
With Warhammer’s influences coming from J.R.R. Tolkein, H.P. Lovecraft, Frank Herbert’s Dune and John Milton’s Paradise Lost and the comic magazine 2000 AD; we can’t wait to see this translated into film.
