“The Witcher” gets a new Geralt. After Henry Cavill’s departure after season 3, the “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth will take over in the future. He now commented on the forthcoming recast of the role.
- For the 4th season of the Netflix series “The Witcher” Henry Cavill has announced his departure.
- Instead, Liam Hemsworth is set to take on the role of Witcher Geralt.
- Now Hemsworth revealed his reaction to the recasting on Instagram.
Liam Hemsworth, in whom Cavill has high hopes, has already been confirmed as his successor on instagram
A fan follows in the footsteps of the White Wolf
Hemsworth seems to be more than excited about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Season 4. He is also proud to be Henry Cavill’s successor, whose performance as the fierce witcher Geralt he greatly admired over the years.
You can clearly read that Hemsworth is a fan of the franchise himself. While he understands the challenge of following in the great footsteps Cavill left behind, he also looks forward to this unique opportunity to be a part of the Witcher world.
What can we expect from The Witcher in season 4 starring Hemsworth?
With movies like The Expendables 2 and Independence Day: Resurgence, Liam Hemsworth has already proven he can embody an action hero. He also seems to have the necessary physique and muscle mass for a Geralt. Still, many fans are very upset about the recast and it will take some time and convincing to get them excited for Season 4.
In addition, it would be conceivable that Hemsworth’s “takeover” of the role, with a twist, is already being prepared at the end of season 3. Or the cast change happens “silently” without mentioning the change in Geralt’s appearance. Similar to the 2010 Starz series, “Spartacus”.
Either way, the recast marks a big change in the fantasy series . However, given Hemsworth’s enthusiasm, his acting experience, and Cavill’s explicit endorsement, one can be optimistic.
Hemsworth could show us new facets of Geralt and deepen the father-daughter relationship between him and Ciri (Freya Allan). Season 4 of “The Witcher” is expected to be available on Netflix in 2024 at the earliest.
In the summer of 2023, The Witcher season 3 starts on Netflix, then we experience Henry Cavill one last time as Geralt on the continent. On December 25, we can already expect a spin-off in the Netflix news program with ” The Witcher: Blood Origin ” .
