SUPERMAN actor Henry Cavill has been cast as a series seven fine sable-hair paint brush in Amazon’s upcoming Warhammer series.
Cavill insisted on the role, believing it key to the whole Warhammer universe due to its absolute necessity when picking out individual rivets on a Primaris Repulsor Executioner.
The lifelong fan of tabletop wargaming and executive producer of the series said: “This is what my whole career has been building to. Playing The Brush was always my dream.
“Certainly there are character in the Warhammer universe, they’re not just little models covered in spikes specifically designed to excite the adolescent male brain, but The Brush rules o’er all of them. Without the brush, they’re nothing but grey.
“I don’t want to spoil anything, but viewers can expect to see my character face off against hordes of Tyranids and the terrifying legions of Horus’s Chaos Space Marines, carefully painting their armour then going in for an ink wash. The audience will be gripped.
“I’ll be joined by Chris Pratt who plays a loose cannon pot of Abaddon Black, and Scarlett Johansson as a shapely Da Vinci Series 10 brush with a rounded tip, perfect for drybrushing. Can we work together as a team? Wait and see.”
Martin Bishop said: “Cavill is genius casting. Because woman fancy him so they’ll get into Warhammer, where I’ll chat them up by telling them everything they’re doing wrong.”
