Is Henry Cavill Starring in a Mass Effect Series?

There is no end to the news about series adaptations of well-known video games. This time it's Mass Effect, where something has been going on behind the scenes for a while. The Witcher actor Henry Cavill revealed more about it.

Did I hear right? A Mass Effect series with Henry Cavill? Absolutely right. At least if you go by an Instagram picture that the actor recently posted.

In the picture, you can clearly see Henry Cavill sitting in makeup, apparently on the set of the new season of the Witcher series but what is that in his hand? Secrets from the witcher school Caer Morhen? A shopping list? Or a script for a secret new project?

Cavill is playing with his fans' expectations, but he didn't count on their creativity (or maybe he did). Using a program, they were able to figure out that the text was pulled from the Wikipedia entry for Mass Effect! Is someone secretly learning about the franchise to star in a Mass Effect series?

It is now well known that Henry Cavill is a gamer. His role as the witcher Geralt in the Netflix series convinced even the last skeptic. It was even funnier when Cavill got "accidentally injured" when Cyberpunk 2077 was released. What a coincidence! The question at hand is - will we soon see Cavill in the role of Commander Shepard?

The rights to Mass Effect adaptations have been with Legendary and Warner Bros. since 2010 but they haven't done much with them so far. Could that change soon? We're excited and really hope Cavill is on board the hype train!
