Actor Henry Cavill has again associated his name with a potential upcoming Mass Effect TV series.
The Superman and Witcher star teased a potential live-action Mass Effect project earlier this year, and has now reacted to reports that Amazon is “nearing a deal” to create such a series.
When asked by GamesRadar if he would be interested in starring in the project, Cavill replied: “Very much so, yeah, all depending on how they’re executing it. The world of adaptation can be heavy or light. When I like a product, I prefer the adaptation to be less changed from the source, so it all depends.”
Referring to the reported Amazon deal, Cavill added: “”I think it’s found a home, hasn’t it? If [it] finds a home, I would love to have a conversation.”

Cavill also explained that he was a fan of the original Mass Effect trilogy. “I did not play Andromeda – I had a go at it, but ended up being very busy,” he said.
“But [the original trilogy]? Yeah. Loved it. Brilliant games. It would make such a magnificent series of movies or TV shows.”
Deadline reported last month that Amazon Studios, which is responsible for creating original content for Amazon Prime Video, was “nearing a deal” to develop a series based on EA’s best-selling sci-fi franchise.
According to the article, the deal is part of a push to create more ‘genre’ content for the streaming service, following the success of fantasy series The Wheel of Time and the upcoming Lord of the Rings series.
“We can firmly say that Wheel of Time was the most watched series premiere of the year and one of the Top 5 series launches of all time for Prime Video,” Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke told the website.
Cavill teased a potential live-action Mass Effect project earlier this year, by posting a blurred image of what appeared to be a script page on his Instagram page in February.
The photo was accompanied by the message: “Secret project? Or just a handful of paper with random words on it. Guess you’ll have to wait and see.”
