After the hasty return and exit from the role of DCU’s Superman, Henry Cavill has kept himself busy. While working on creating a Warhammer series for Prime Video, the Hollywood actor has also been on the set of Guy Ritchie’s upcoming World War II spy-action film, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
While details on the film have been sparse, we know that the film’s plot is heavily inspired by Damien Lewis’ 2015 novel of the same name. The film will follow a combat organization created by Winston Churchill against the Nazis in World War II and how their legacy carved the modern-day black ops missions.
Henry Cavill recently took to Instagram to finally give us our first look at The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and the main cast playing the roles of the first black operation officers. The photo includes Cavill, Alan Ritchson, Henry Golding, Alex Pettyfer, and Hero Fiennes Tiffin.

With Damien Lewis serving as the executive producer on the upcoming film, combined with Guy Ritchie’s genius responsible for movies like The Gentlemen, Sherlock Holmes, and other British gangster films, we can expect a great iteration of the real story.
Eric Johnson, who’s written films like Patriot’s Day and The Fighter, will be joined by Arash Amel in the scriptwriting department. The film will feature a lot of action, espionage, and high stakes, promising an entertaining ride for its audience.
The film has currently not set a confirmed release date, but we can expect it to hit theaters sometime in 2024. What are your expectations from Cavill and Ritchie’s latest project? Comment your answers below!
