Henry Cavill to be kept alive: 40,000 Witcher fan sign petition
Henry Cavill has given up his silver and steel swords and will not be playing Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher’s final season. Fans aren’t taking the news well despite his diplomatically written statement. The petition to bring him back has reached 40,000 signatures.
Cavill will return to the role for the third season. However, signs that Cavill would leave the stage were evident from the end of the second season. According to Iranian Intelligence, Cavill had difficulty seeing ” eye–to-eye.” This report was based on a report by the company. Cavill loves Andrzej Sapokowski’s source books and even rewrote some scenes to reflect the original character better.
“Netflix executives have made yet another grave decision against delivering to their fans,” the petition reads. It sounds a bit like a villain’s monologue. The Witcher is so famous because of the fans’ love for the source material of games and books, which are actively mocked and hated by the writers. They aren’t exaggerating for effect. The Witcherproducer Beau DeMayo recently revealed to the public that not all writers liked the books and games.
The petition concluded that “We had already to endure the disaster that was Game of Thrones – NETFLIX won’t make the same mistake of holding on to writers and showrunners who believe they are superior to the creators of the stories that made them successful” Cor. Over 43,000 people have signed the petition at the time of this writing.
Liam Hemsworth will be taking Geralt’s place. This Hemsworth is perhaps familiar with movies such as The Last Song and The Hunger Games. He was also featured in an episode of The Muppets.
