According to Fandom Wire, the creators worked with Cavill to such an extent that he got tired, leaving him very little time to focus on other projects. In addition, the timing of Cavill’s departure makes the rumor more relevant. Shortly before Cavill left The Witcher, the British actor returned to the DC Extended Universe. Meanwhile, the creators of the series have already announced Liam Hemsworth as the new Geralt from Rivia.
However, there’s something else Cavill fans can look forward to. Recently, the show’s creator Lauren Hissrich announced that the latest season featuring Cavill could be released in two parts. Although there is no confirmation, the release of two parts of the third season will allow fans to enjoy Cavill’s presence longer. In addition, The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt also paid tribute to the British actor in its latest update.
What is the actor doing now?
Recently, Cavill has several projects planned for the coming years. The British actor is ready to return to the big screens with the Warhammer 40K series based on the game. In addition, Cavill may also star in the spy thriller “Argyle” together with Dua Lipa. However, we don’t have a release date yet.
