Henry Cavill Won’t Return to ‘The Witcher’ Even After Losing Superman Role

Just yesterday, we’ve been hit with some depressing news as just as Henry Cavill finally got a chance to return in the role of Superman one more time in Black Adam, it seems DC Studios has decided to move forward without him after all. He seemingly even left his role of Gerald of Rivia from Netflix’s The Witcher. Just as he lost one role, many hoped this would mean he’d get a chance to return to the franchise that is near-and-dear to his heart. Yet, it seems that won’t be the case either.

Variety has shared that Cavill won’t return to The Witcher even as the fan demand has spiked since he moved on from Superman. Season 4 is still moving forward with Liam Hemsworth in the title role that Cavill held for the first three. Of course, the reception of him leaving the series was not met with welcome arms by the community, especially after recent reports that the writing staff openly mocked the original source material. Add them moving away from the original source material, fans are peeved even as the series remains a strong Netflix Original.

Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has denied the recent allegations made by former writer Beau DeMayo, but there still has been some doubt. It’ll be interesting to see if the series can remain its viewership with the new lead. If they don’t manage to pull in their audience, they may have to reconsider their plans for the franchise moving forward especially now as the spinoff Blood Origin is about to release.
