Cavill has announced that he will not be reprising his role as Superman in future films, indicating that he has retired from playing the superhero.

Amazon's Jennifer Salke said, “Warhammer 40,000 has captured the imagination of fans of all ages, from all walks of life, and all over the world.” 

She further added, “we are excited to work with Henry, Vertigo Entertainment, and Games Workshop across our Amazon entertainment businesses."

The Warhammer brand has been going strong for 40 years, spanning miniatures, sourcebooks, tabletop games, and video games
