Aside from his prolific career in cinema, ‘Immortals’ actor Henry Cavill is also a proficient gamer of both tabletop and video games. He has mentioned some of his favorite games, including Warhammer, frequently during interviews.
During a conversation with GamesRadar, Henry Cavill praised the video game franchise ‘Mass Effect’ and said he would “love to have a conversation” about being in a series based on the property.
“Very much so, yeah, all depending on how they’re executing it,” he said. “The world of adaptation can be heavy or light. When I like a product, I prefer the adaptation to be less changed from the source, so it all depends.”
“I think it’s found a home, hasn’t it? If [the series] finds a home, I would love to have a conversation,” ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ actor added.
He also shared some insight on which games are his favorite in the franchise saying, “I did not play Andromeda – I had a go at it, but ended up being very busy. But [The Mass Effect Trilogy]? Yeah. Loved it. Brilliant games.” He said, “It would make such a magnificent series of movies or TV shows.”
Henry Cavill has made a name for himself through several fanbases. Comic book fans know him as Superman from ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ and ‘Justice League.’ Fans of espionage thrillers know him from ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ and Mission: ‘Impossible – Fallout.’ Gamers know him from ‘The Witcher,’ which has been renewed for a second season on Netflix.
‘Mass Effect’ was originally released in 2007 for Xbox 360, PC, and PS3. It was followed by several spin-offs, two sequels, and ‘Andromeda.’ The original trilogy was released as ‘Mass Effect Legendary Edition’ in 2021. While many feature film adaptions have labored in development limbo, an anime produced by Production I.G. titled ‘Mass Effect: Paragon Lost’ was released in 2012.
