This year has been marked with shedding roles, but a fresh array of upcoming movies for Henry Cavill. Just a month ago, the last days of July marked the ending of season 3 volume 2 of The Witcher. Not only did he hang up his Witcher sword, but the British actor also left his red cape behind. After anticipation of who would play Superman after the James Gunn takeover, fans were met with another disappointment. The studios had dropped Cavill as a choice, to find another suitable younger hero. Superman: Legacy with no legacy of the reigning Superman hero.

Fans did not know they would be seeing the Man of Steel actor appear as a Superman after half a decade for the last time, as a cameo in Black Adam. But it seems like the Enola Holmes actor is done with playing legacy sagas. In his new Cavill era, the actor is all ready to star in roles in a genre we have seldom seen him in. Here is a list of Henry Cavill’s upcoming movies.

Though Guy Ritchie seems to be making the most out of Cavill’s free schedule, the actor is stepping out of his box. The British actor will tread into genres that his fans have not seen him in the past. Though some of them have action sequences, the type of fighting or weapon use involved is different from fantasy-based drama shows. 

1. The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

The action spy film is the first of a kind that the actor will be starring in. A Ritchie-directed movie, it is based on the novel Churchill’s Secret Warriors: The Explosive True Story of the Special Forces Desperadoes of WWII. The cast alongside the British actor involves the After franchise’s Hero Fiennes Tiffin, his namesake Henry Zaga, and others. The Night Hunter actor even hinted at the film’s principal photography pictures of this Lionsgate film, set to release in 2024. 

2. Cipher Conundrum

Just months after the English actor teased his fans with a brown-scaled picture from the sets of The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, it was reported that The Witcher actor would be playing a con man in a heist movie. Titled Cipher Conundrum, there have not been any official updates yet. Another Ritchie collaboration, this Universal Pictures feature, will be a mission-based high-stakes heist. 

3. Unnamed Project

Ritchie doesn’t stop here with the Justice League actor. On what is supposed to be the 4th collaboration, after 2015’s Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the above-mentioned projects, there is an unnamed movie in the works too. Jake Gyllenhaal and Eiza González are joining the Immortals actor for both this project and The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. The two males will probably play the “extraction specialists” and González the “high-level female negotiator” as reported by Deadline.
