Post-Witcher and Superman departure, Henry Cavill is poised for several potential upcoming projects that could turn into blockbuster franchises.

Henry Cavill may have bid farewell to two major franchises, but the actor is poised for several potential upcoming projects that could turn into blockbuster franchises of their own. After playing Superman in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and departing from Netflix’s “The Witcher” series, Cavill still has promising opportunities in the pipeline. Here’s a look at four of these projects:

4. Highlander

Highlander, the original 1986 movie, introduced the concept of immortal warriors battling throughout history, with the famous tagline “There can only be one.” While the original film spawned a series of sequels and an animated movie, a reboot with Henry Cavill could potentially lead to a successful franchise. The reboot has been in development for a decade, and director Chad Stahelski, known for the John Wick series, is attached to helm it. With Stahelski’s expertise in world-building and action choreography, this could be a thrilling new franchise.

3. Argylle

Argylle is an action spy film directed by Matthew Vaughn and features an ensemble cast that includes Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, John Cena, and Bryan Cranston. Cavill plays a spy with amnesia who believes he’s a best-selling novelist and must rediscover his true identity while tracking down the organization he used to work for. Produced by AppleTV+, this movie is planned to kickstart a trilogy and could become a major franchise for the streaming platform.

2. Warhammer 40,000

Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop wargame known for its expansive lore set in a distant future where human civilization is besieged by various threats. Henry Cavill is set to star in a TV show based on this universe, and he will also serve as an executive producer. Given the rich source material and Cavill’s commitment to understanding the worlds he’s involved in, this series has the potential to grow into a massive franchise, potentially even connecting with the Warhammer Fantasy universe.

1. The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare

The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare is a Guy Ritchie-directed movie set during World War II, focusing on the Special Operations Executive, also known as “Churchill’s Secret Warriors.” Henry Cavill plays the lead role in this spy thriller. Ritchie has a track record of turning projects into franchises, as seen with the Sherlock Holmes movies and the upcoming TV series based on The Gentlemen. This World War II movie has the potential to spawn sequels, each focusing on different Special Operations Executive missions led by Cavill.
