Henry Cavill Is 'Dreaming' Of Starring In A Live-Action Warhammer Movie

Henry Cavill Is 'Dreaming' Of Starring In A Live-Action Warhammer Movie

Henry Cavill is very strongly indicating he's keen to star in a Warhammer movie or TV show if one were to be made in the future.

The Witcher star is no stranger to the fantasy franchise and has previously opened up about his obsession with painting the miniature figurines during lockdown.

But now he's telling every Hollywood executive, producer, casting agent and studio that he is the man for the job if a Warhammer screenplay was ever green lit.

The hardest situation that he would be in, though, is deciding what role he would want to play.

"There are a lot of characters from the Warhammer universe that I want to be," he told IGN

"But I can only really be one, because once I'm one, then I can't be others. So if it were to ever happen, if there were to be anything live action, I would have to be very aware of that."

He explained how because Warhammer has two different universes with separate plots and characters, he could potentially have two roles.

And that would be an absolute dream for him.

"I suppose I could play a different character from the Warhammer fantasy universe versus the 40K universe, but now I'm just dreaming," he said.

Interestingly, Cavill's interest in Warhammer was mentioned during a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show.

The host brought up how the British actor has loads of hobbies and painting Warhammer figurines is certainly high on that list.

"You do fly your nerd flag with pride. One of your hobbies - and he's got a lot of them, ladies and gentlemen - is you paint..." Norton said.

Cavill interjected and joked that saying he's got a lot of hobbies makes him sound 'weird'.

Swaying from side to side, Norton went on: "Well, you do have more hobbies than the average man, I'd say," finishing his previous sentence, he added: "You paint, is it World of Warcraft?"

Correcting him, Cavill says: "Warhammer," before the host goes on to ask: "You paint by hand? Does everyone do that or can you buy them already painted?"

Cavill explains: "You have to paint them, but it's just how much effort you put in to it."

At that point Graham says: "And you put a lot of effort."

People took issue with the TV host's tone and how it was seemingly taking the mick out of the actor for having a hobby that some thought might be nerdy or pointless.

But Cavill won more fans for defending the interest on national television and fellow actor Tom Holland, who was sitting next to Henry, asked if he could come over and play Warhammer sometime.
