Henry Cavill Name Erased From The Witcher 3, News from Hollywood
Henry Cavill Name Erased From The Witcher 3- It can be said that the source material of Netflix’s hit show ‘The Witcher’ is so good that the show can stand on its own. However, it doesn’t hurt that the show stars someone like Henry Cavill to play the titular role.
He is the biggest actor on the show and having him around certainly helped Netflix gain a lot from ‘The Witcher’. Season 1 of the fantasy drama was met with wide critical and commercial acclaim, mostly directed towards the magnificent writing and Henry Cavill’s performance.
2020 was a bad year, for the entire planet in general. With the arrival of a global pandemic bringing the world to a standstill, ‘The Witcher’ fans had worse to deal with.
In late 2020, the news broke out that Henry Cavill was leaving the show.
HENRY CAVILL LEAVES ‘THE WITCHER’
‘The Witcher’ was well into production for its second season when the lockdown was imposed in several parts of the world.
The shooting halted in the second quarter of the year and it kept getting delayed for months.
If it was a low-budget film, it would have been an entirely different situation. But a production as big as ‘The Witcher’ suffered terribly due to the ongoing delays.
HENRY CAVILL REPLACEMENT FOR ‘THE WITCHER’
Amidst all this troubled time, came to the news that Henry Cavill has finally decided to leave the show and his replacement has already been announced.
It was widely reported that actor Matt Bomer, the Golden Globe Award-winning actor, would fill Henry’s shoes to play Geralt of Rivia.
It was a major blow to the actor’s fans worldwide and the fans of ‘The Witcher’ who had become accustomed to Henry’s amazing portrayal of their favorite Witcher by now.
The rumors traveled well into 2021 as neither Henry nor Netflix came ahead to clear the air.
The fans released a sigh of release upon hearing these announcements. As they wait desperately for the episodes to drop, somewhere in LA, a competent nerd must already be composing the screenplay drafts of ‘The Witcher’ Season 3. Exciting times!
