The Witcher: Fans SLAM Netflix after Liam Hemsworth casting as ‘The Witcher’

Don't miss

Netflix has come under fire from The Witcher fans after a contentious choice was made for the fourth season of the popular program. On Sunday, Henry Cavill made the announcement that he will stop portraying Geralt of Rivia on the show and that Australian actor Liam Hemsworth would take over.

The British actor, who previously hinted at an ‘enormously joyful’ and ‘bright’ future with the character, will be reprising his role as Superman for DC, which accounts for the odd cast switch. Henry Cavill has had a really fascinating career over the past twenty years, whether he was a superhuman alien from Krypton sent to save Earth or a double agent out to get Tom Cruise.

While many of his parts share many of the same characteristics, a handful of them stands out as absolutely amazing performances that showcase his spectrum of talent. His role in The Witcher as Geralt made fans go crazy for him, but now that he will no longer be part of the show, this has made his fans furious. Read out to dig into more details.

What Henry Cavil, aka Geralt of Rivia, have to say about leaving the Witcher show?

According to Yahoolifestyle, I have encountered both monsters and adventures throughout my voyage as Geralt of Rivia, but regrettably, I will be putting my medallion and my blades away for Season 4. The amazing Mr. Liam Hemsworth will take the role of the White Wolf in my place, he said.

“Like the greatest literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and excitement to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men,” said Geralt. Before Liam posted something of his own, the Enola Holmes actress wished him luck.

While conceding that he has “big boots to fill,” Liam complimented Henry and declared that he has been a “fan of Henry’s for years.”

Fans who were upset quickly took to social media, many of whom declared they would no longer be watching the show because of the sudden exit of their favourite character.

One fan said, “ devastated that Henry is leaving the show…Liam can’t be compared.” 

Another follower added, “Damm seeing how passionate Henry Cavil was in his recent speech about the show, leaving the show is actually sad”

One fan said, ” Henry Cavil leaving the show has ruined me.”

A follower tweets that Henry Cavil leaving The Witcher is the most depressing thing I’ve heard this year.

Henry Cavil is leaving The Witcher because the writers don’t care about the books? Time to fire the writers, a fan added.
