April Fools! | Breaking News! Warhammer Cinematic Universe Coming Summer 2023
OK OK…this was an April’s Fool joke. We hope you liked it though!
Exciting news from Games Workshop today! Head of Digital Media Stephan Hand has announced the Warhammer Cinematic Universe is coming to our screens soon!
The teaser trailer can be watched below:
Starting with the film Ahriman: Multiverse of Magnus, Warhammer + subscribers will be taken on a universe hopping adventure that will bind all Games Workshop IP past and present! It all sounds very exciting! Here’s some words that Stephan shared with us about this new venture!
“Some people say that Cinematic Universes are an overdone tired cliché, but I know our fans cannot wait to see exciting things such as Lucius the Eternal’s long awaiting fight against against Eltharion the Blind or the Chainsaw Warrior face off against the Warlock of Firetop Mountain!
With the success of Warhammer + we have not only been given the chance to produce feature length movies that will be available exclusively for subscribers, but we also finally have the ability to tie all our universes together in the way that all our fans have been wanting for years!
Obviously, this is a major undertaking and we are still in the early stages – but our long term plans include adding this cross universe interaction into our tabletop games too.
This will be first seen in Warhammer Underworlds: Fusion due for launch for the 2022 holiday season which will for the first time allow you to command your favourite Kill Team or Man O War fleet in the Competitive Miniatures Game through the new Rift format!
I wish I could tell you all the things we have lined up, but sadly you are going to have to wait a little bit longer!”Stephan Hand – Games Workshop 2022
Well I am rather excited to see what comes of this, and what ramifications it might have on our favourite game! I know we have all been waiting for a Horus Heresy series, but I think you will agree that the prospect of seeing Gotrek fight Abaddon is even more exciting!
Games Workshop have not shared too many details of the upcoming film series, but we did manage to glean an exclusive synopsis of the first film Ahriman: Multiverse of Magnus.
When the Crimson King fails to control powers beyond his abilities, Ahzek Ahriman must go on a multiversal mission to correct his Gene-Father’s mistakes.
From the jungles of Lustria to the Nuffle Stadium, Ahriman will face trials and tribulations before he can face Magnus where it all started – The Emperor’s Dungeon.
We’ve also got an exclusive first look at the promotional imagery for the film:
I don’t know about you, but I have goosebumps just thinking about it! No word of cast yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Henry Cavill’s recent trip to Warhammer World has some part in this…
More news as we get it!
