I was so excited when Henry Cavill announced he’d be wearing the red cape again and playing Superman in another DC movie. Little did I know that commitment meant he would have to give up another job.
The actor announced on Saturday that he would be leaving the Netflix show ‘The Witcher’ to concentrate on his other work in the DC Universe.
He shared the news with fans on social media saying how much he loved working on the first three seasons of the series, but that he will not be back for Season 4. It was also announced that actor Liam Hemsworth will be donning the long blond wig and taking over the role.
He wrote, “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4. In my stead, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men.”
Hemsworth said he’s got large boots to fill but says he is "truly excited" to be joining the show.
We do get to see Cavill portray the character for a little while longer as Season 3 is expected to be released sometime next Summer.
