Cavill then delighted fans further by sharing a video where he giddily explores Warhammer World.
In the caption, he wrote: “Some of you may not know what Warhammer is, and I urge you to take a look. If you live in the UK definitely go to Warhammer World.
“The artistry involved and the synergy between miniature designs that are so enormously diverse, is extraordinary. The brilliance of the artistry is rather wonderfully matched, by the sense of community and also the passion that is shown by both the people who work there and the people who visit.
On the show, Norton said: “You do fly your nerd flag with pride. One of your hobbies - and he’s got a lot of them ladies and gentlemen - one of your hobbies is you paint…”
Cavill interjected: “Makes me sound weird”.
Norton continued: “Well, you do have more hobbies than the average man, I’d say. But you paint is it War of… World of Warcraft?”
“Warhammer,” Cavill said.
“Warhammer, I’m a fool,” Norton joked.
Cavill went on to explain that there’s the painting and modelling side of the hobby, and the gaming side of the hobby. Asked what he does once they’re painted, Cavill said: “You put them together in little armies and then you fight someone else’s army.”
He added: “It is fun, it sounds ridiculous, but it is fun”.
Spider-man actor Tom Holland even asked if he could join Cavill for a game sometime.
Superman and Spider-man enjoying a tabletop game together is certainly something we’d love to see.
