The Games Workshop properties will be the basis for movies and TV shows produced by Amazon.

The rights will initially be granted for the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The two companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

Warhammer 40,000 is a incredibly popular tabletop miniature wargame.

Amazon will be able to provide movies, TV shows, and other IP-based content thanks to the partnership.

The "Warhammer 40,000" universe is epic in scope and has a sizable following all over the world.

Henry Cavill, who played Superman in Man of Steel, will star in and executive produce Warhammer 40,000, according to Amazon.

It's important to mention that Cavill won't be playing Superman again, as was just announced.

After three seasons, Cavill will also leave Netflix's "The Witcher," retiring his character Geralt of Rivia and handing the role over to "The Hunger Games" actor Liam Hemsworth.
