If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.

I'm hoping they finally do Eisenhorn, though Cavill is, like, entirely too LARGE to be Eisenhorn (as I picture the character in my mind).

Here's hoping the poor guy isn't brought into yet another franchise he loves only to see it horribly mismanaged, lol.

I'm cautiously optimistic!

Ciaphas Cain. You can go full grimdark darkness of grim while at the same time offering light moments of people just trying to get by with self aware absurdity.

I cannot emphasize enough how much I DON'T want to see Ciphas Cain on the screen.

Problem is, personally I want a Guard based story as it's ordinary people in extra ordinary situations. When Marines turn up, as they're bound too sooner or later, they should be absolutely terrifying and scarce. Same with all the Xenos, they should be a completely out of context event. We're used to seeing Orks on the screen in one form or another so I feel they're kind of boring a lot of time.

I have a feeling that this won't be the case because he is being brought on as the lead and as an Executive Producer.  I am hoping that means he has some creative control to be able to slap the wrists of people and say "No, we aren't doing that!"

I want Henry Cavill to be to Warhammer what Dave Filoni is to Star Wars.

I could see a Gaunt's Ghost series as being a great point to start.  Maybe don't follow the books exactly, but build within the idea of the Sabbat Crusade.  Although there are some pretty ridiculous things that happen in those books.

"Oh no, a World Eater!"
*Boom, headshot by Gaunt*

"Oh no, a chaos dreadnought"
*Boom, beslubberin' M'koll*

I 100% agree with this. If they just make a "Band of Brothers"-alike but with marines I probably won't be too interested. Making it about regular humans will help anchor a good baseline for everything else, and also makes for more potentially interesting interpersonal drama. I mean, you can make marines be bros or rivals and the like, obviously, but I'd honestly prefer if they eventually humanized them AFTER showing how scary and aloof they are to everyone else.

Also, I hope they would lean into the monstrous scale and bureaucracy of the Imperium. It's dogmatic inefficiency, superstition, and near ungoverneability has always been one of the defining traits of the setting to me, and sometimes it feels like they don't convey that too well if the focus is just marines.

Andor is doing a bit of that showing how the Empire is wobbling on its own size and incompetence. The show's going to have to do a fair bit of As You Know to explain things and a Commissar doing mandatory briefings could help capture that without extensive voice over.
