Henry Cavill has quit as Witcher

Grim news are coming from the Continent

Fan’s favorite actor, Henry Cavill, who shared their enthusiasm about Witcher has quit his role. With many rumors flying around, we are here to explain why:

Henry Cavill and the Witcher

The Netflix series “The Witcher” introduced us to our roving monster killer Geralt of Rivia in 2019. Henry Cavill, who portrayed this character, with white hair and strong golden eyes, had a wonderful demeanor. The actor was also a huge admirer of the books and video games. So, when he was cast in the series, his wish came true.

Cavill once acknowledged that this isn’t really a job to him, but rather the realization of his childhood dreams. Even his stunning co-star Freya Allan referred to him as “the Witcher’s encyclopedia.” When you enter something full of joy and hope, what can go wrong? Unfortunately, after the third season that will air in the summer of 2023, Henry will no longer play the role of Geralt. Instead, Liam Hemsworth will take on the reigns.

What Cavill had to say

Henry Cavill’s exit from the series, which made headlines, devastated The Witcher fans’ hearts. He convinced the audience that he was made for the character of Geralt of Rivia because of his intense passion for the story and the game. The 39-year-old celebrity used Instagram to share the information with his followers.

Some news to share from The Continent… My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4. In my stead, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.

Fans speculations about Henry quitting as the Witcher

The first speculation that was flying around was that Henry quit in order to star in the new Superman movie. Although, we don’t think that’s the case. Over the years, Cavill managed to fit in many other projects while filming the Witcher. Just recently, we saw Enola Holmes 2 premiere on the small screens. So, what happened then?

We, as well as a good portion of other fans, believe Netflix is here to blame. In an interview long back, Cavill said as long as the showrunners stay faithful to the source material, he will be more than happy to portray Geralt. The first season of the Witcher was somewhat similar to the books, excluding the bad casting. However, the second season was a disaster. A completely new storyline, more bad casting, and ruining the Yennefer character have probably pushed Cavill over the edge. Along with that, we got some sneak peeks into next season’s castings… And they’re terrible once again.

New Geralt of Rivia

The White Wolf will now be played by Liam Hemsworth. Cavill expressed his delight to see Hemsworth playing this intriguing role and announced that the Australian actor will take over the fourth season. However, fans aren’t too happy about this. A lot of them could only imagine Henry in this role and this change will be a problem for them. A good portion even said that they will no longer be watching the Witcher and expressed their grief and anger at Netflix. One product of that anger is this petition that was signed over 200000 times
