Over the past few months, Liam Hemsworth taking over the role of Geralt of Rivia after Henry Cavill has become one of the hottest topic of discussion among The Witcher fandom. As we all know, the actor will take over the mantle of Geralt following the show’s third season. However, even after all these months, one question is still bothering The Witcher fans. With no updates on the show’s fourth season, every fan is growing anxious to know what Hemsworth will look like as Geralt. While there are no official pictures for the same, it seems like we have a glimpse of how Hemsworth might appear in the upcoming seasons.
The fourth season of Netflix’s popular fantasy drama, The Witcher, is yet to have a release date. Owing to that, fans still have some time before they can finally witness how Hemsworth would look as Geralt of Rivia. In the meantime, the audience can surely get an idea of it. Not long ago, a trailer teaser by Stryder HD on YouTube featured Hemsworth as the lead of the fantasy series. Apparently, the channel used deepfake technology to create a new trailer for The Witcher with Hemsworth playing the role of Geralt.
However, this is not the only time we are seeing Hemsworth as the Geralt of Rivia. Previously, another fan art on Instagram by digital artists 83 Pixel Art Studious, gave the fans a similar image, imagining the Hunger Games actor in the role. Meanwhile, both the edits perfectly blend the likeness of Hemsworth with Cavill’s Geralt and have seemingly reduced the dislike the fans had for Hemsworth’s Geralt.
