Is Henry Cavill going to be in a film or TV adaptation of Mass Effect? I don’t know, but Cavill certainly wants you to think he is. The actor has taken to Instagram with a trolling tease that he’s working on something in the Mass Effect universe, and the implications are obvious. Either Cavill is being extremely mean to Mass Effect fans, or we’re about to see BioWare’s sci-fi epic move beyond the world of RPG games.
The image shows Cavill at a make-up table. At the edge of the screen, there’s a piece of paper with a pile of blurry text on it. “Secret project? Or just a handful of paper with random words on it,” Cavill teases in the photo’s caption. “Guess you’ll have to wait and see. Happy hump day all.”
The blurry text is an excerpt from the Mass Effect 3 Wikipedia page, as the folks at Gamepressure discovered by running the photo through a deblur program. The text specifically references the bit in ME3 where you deal with the battle between the Quarians and the Geth.
