Former vice president of Blizzard, Chris Metzen, believes that Henry Cavil would make an excellent Arthas Menethil.

Back in September, graphic designer Mustafa Kemal Sezeroğlu posted a custom movie poster with Henry Cavill in the role of the Lich King. Soon, the movie poster ended on Reddit where it got upvoted like crazy. When Netflix released the images of  Big Geralt in order to advertise the second season of Witcher, the custom movie poster got the attention of many Blizzard employees including Christin Golden, Anne Stickney and, of course, Chris Metzen. Metzen also made a tweet stating that Herny is one of the best Arthas candidates. In addition, Shara184 also uploaded an image in Reddit featuring Cavill as the Lich King.

Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill was born in 5th of May 1983 and is an English actor. He is known for his portrayal of the DC Comics character Superman in the DC Extended Universe, as well as Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher.  Cavill is a spokesman for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, and an ambassador for The Royal Marines Charity. He launched the running phase of the Royal Marines 1664 Challenge and took part in The Gibraltar Rock Run 2014. In August 2014, Cavill took part in an Ice Bucket Challenge in support of the ALS Association where he was soaked with six large buckets of water, while wearing his full Superman costume.

Unfortunately, another Warcraft film seems unlikely, especially after the letdown of the 2016 movie. According to director of the movie, Duncan Jones, the experience was “really, really difficult and at times disheartening.”  Let’s cross our fingers and pray for a sequel that will feature the life of Arthas Menethil with Herny Cavill on the role.
