Um, so Netflix officially announced that The Witch has been updated for a fourth season, but here’s the thing… Henry Cavill will not return to the role of Geralt of Rivia. The main character of the series will now be played by Liam Hemsworthand as a fan of the show, I felt confused and conflicted.
Cavill is one of the main reasons why The Witcher is so amazing! To be honest, I don’t see the point in continuing the series without him. I just didn’t see Hemsworth in this role and I wish Netflix would end it.
Hemsworth is best known for starring in the Hunger Games franchise and most recently starred in the drama Quibi Most Dangerous Game. It is very strange that he is the only player to replace Cavill. No reason was given why Cavill left, but I imagine maybe he will focus his attention and attention on his Superman sequel?
Cavill said, “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with monsters and adventures, and sadly, I will be laying down my medals and sword for Season 4. In exchange, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will take over the White Wolf mantle. As with the greatest literary characters, I give the torch with respect for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm for seeing Liam’s take on this most interesting and nuanced man. Liam good lord this character has great depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find. ”
Hemsworth added, “As a Witcher fan, I’m really excited about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been a wonderful Geralt, and I am honored that he gave me the reins and allowed me to take the White Wolf sword for the next chapter of his adventure. Henry, I have been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. I may have some big boots to fill, but I’m really excited to step into the world of The Witcher. ”
What do you think about this madness!? What do you think of Liam Hemsworth replacing Henry Cavill as Geralt?
