From being a huge fan of the Witcher franchise to immortalizing the role of the Geralt of Rivia and later abruptly leaving the franchise, Henry Cavill left everyone speechless. 2022 was one of the most heartbreaking years for the Cavill fandom. As the actor bid farewell to one of his most iconic performances on television, a.k.a. The Geralt of Rivia, the fans are still wondering “WHY.“
Over the past few months, Cavill’s exit from The Witcher franchise has become one of the most talked about topics in the media. Some theories suggested that the actor was unhappy as the management wanted to deviate from the source material. On the other hand, inside sources revealed that Cavill was fired. However, now a new rumor about the actor’s exit has started making the rounds.
The new theory about Henry Cavill quitting The Witcher you never saw coming
Ever since Cavill bid farewell to the role of the Geralt of Rivia, fans from all around the world are in a state of shock and confusion. The past few months saw the fandom do everything to reverse the decision. Some fans started a petition online to reverse the decision. While others called out Netflix and the writers for driving away Cavill from his dream role. However, there seems to be another major factor that brought Cavill to his decision. Apparently, the show was demanding “too much” from the British actor.
As per Fandom Wire, the creators worked Cavill to an extent that exhausted him, leaving very little time for him to focus on other projects. Furthermore, the timing of Cavill’s exit makes the rumor a lot more appropriate. Not long before Cavill left The Witcher, the British actor returned to DC Extended Universe. Meanwhile, the show makers have already announced Liam Hemsworth as the new Geralt of Rivia.
However, there is a little more Cavill fans can look forward to. Recently, the show’s creator Lauren Hissrich revealed that the last season featuring Cavill might be released in two parts. While there is no confirmation, releasing two parts for season 3 will allow the fans to rejoice at Cavill’s presence for longer. Apart from that, the Witcher 3 Wild Hunt also paid tribute to the British actor in its latest update.
What is the actor up to now?
As of late, Cavill has a few projects lined up for the coming years. The British actor is all set to return to big screens with the Warhammer 40K series based on the game. Furthermore, Cavill might also star in the spy thriller Argylle along with Dua Lipa. However, we do not have a release date yet.
