Henry Cavill leaves The Witcher and is replaced by Liam Hemsworth

Henry Cavill has left The Witcher and Liam Hemsworth will take on the role of Geralt of Rivia in Season 4. Cavill will continue to appear in Season 3 of the Netflix series, which has already wrapped and is expected to stream next summer.

The shocking news was announced on the show’s official social media accounts on Saturday, with both actors releasing statements explaining the change was amicable.

“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with monsters and adventure, and sadly I will be laying down my medallion and swords for Season 4,” Cavill said. “In my place, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will assume the mantle of the White Wolf. As with the greatest characters in literature, I pass the torch with awe at the time I’ve spent impersonating Geralt and with enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most intriguing and nuanced man.”

“Henry Cavill was an incredible Geralt and I am honored that he is handing me the reins and allowing me to take up the blades of the White Wolf for the next chapter of his adventure,” Hemsworth said in his own statement. “Henry, I’ve been a fan of yours for years and was inspired by what you brought to this beloved character. I may have some big shoes to fill, but I’m really excited to step into the world of The Witcher.”

While Cavill gave no reason for retiring from the role, the cast change coincides with news that he will be reprising his role as Superman in another Warner Bros. standalone film. Cavill made an appearance as Superman in a “Black Adam” post-credit and soon announced there was more to come.

“I wanted to make it official – I’m back as Superman,” the actor wrote on Instagram. “The morning of hope renewed. Thank you for your patience, it will be rewarded.”

Cavill’s Superman will be part of a major creative makeover at Warner Bros., led by James Gunn and Peter Safran, who were recently named Presidents and Co-CEOs of DC Studios, and are tasked with building a cinematic universe that begins with Kevin competes Fig has finished with Marvel.
