On The Eve of The Release of The Third Season of The Witcher, Joey Batey Explains Why Henry Cavill’s Geralt “Looks Like Batman” in Political Views


All fans of Henry Cavill are sad not to see him in the role of Geralt of Rivia after the third season of The Witcher. However, before the British actor leaves the show, he would like all his fans to know something else. This is his unquenchable passion for the character. Ahead of the release of the third season, Cavill and Joey Batey discuss Geralt’s political views.

With multiple characters and a real power struggle throughout the Witcher saga, it’s so easy to get bogged down in political bias. However, in an interview in Tudum, the cast of The Witcher talks about Geralt’s political views and how they change when Ciri enters the war. Speaking on this topic, the 40-year-old man said that Geralt was extremely neutral in his political views. He knew how things would work if he worked for a certain side, and he thought politics was extremely selfish.

Therefore, Geralt refuses to join a certain side. However, Joey Batey has a special term to describe Geralt’s political views. He said that people were real monsters. “There is something very similar to Batman in this,” Batey said, clarifying that Geralt’s political views were “above the political machinations of the world.” Batman never chooses sides, but still does what’s right to save the world. Similarly, Geralt does the right thing, fighting monsters and saving the Continent.

However, there is a catch here. Because Geralt has a surprise child, Ciri. To save her, as actor Enola Holmes showed, Geralt’s perception changed in many things. Does this mean that his political views will also change? Only time will answer the question.

But the upcoming season is sure to bring Geralt a lot of difficulties in his attempts to save Ciri.

Henry Cavill as Geralt will face challenges to save Cirilla.

As Joey Batey said in an interview, the political atmosphere in the upcoming season will be tense. He also referred to the original book and added that, despite the great tension, the third season fairly accurately reflects the events in the books. Although their discussion also raised the question: will Geralt’s neutral political views change?

The third season of Netflix Original will show the exciting journey of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia for the last time. Of course, he will have a lot of difficulties. Because of this, as promised by showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Geralt is waiting for the most heroic send-off. If Batey compared Geralt to Batman, it’s no news that Batman also faced a lot of difficulties in his efforts to save the people he loved the most. Therefore, it is inevitable for Geralt as well.

Well, fans will have to wait until June 29 to find out if what Batey said about Geralt looking like Batman is true. Until then, feel free to share your views on the same in the comment box below.
