“In my stead, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf,” Cavill wrote about the announced seasons four and five. “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.”

Liam Hemsworth is best known for the role of Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games film franchise. He is also the younger brother of Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cavill will appear as Geralt in the third season

The Witcher changes do not make fans very happy. One fan posted in the comments, “RIP the show” and another responded that Cavill didn’t like “the direction of Season 3 and onwards” and he was “VERY critical of Season 2 and the direction the writers took.” Whatever the reason, Cavill wished Hemsworth the best of luck with the role and wished him the best with the franchise.

What is next for Henry Cavill?

The biggest reason that Henry Cavill quit The Witcher likely has more to do with his next roles than any discontent with the storyline direction. Earlier this week, Cavill announced he was returning to the role of Superman in the DC Extended Universe.

Cavill showed up in the post-credits of Black Adam and surprised fans who thought he had left the DCEU for good. While Dwayne Johnson spoiled the surprise leading up to the movie’s release, it was still a big moment with Cavill back as Superman on the big screen.

“It was a very powerful moment for me,” Cavill said about putting the Superman costume back on again for Black Adam. “It was important for me to be standing there and enjoying that moment. That is one of the top moments in my career. It feels great to have the opportunity to wear it again.” Warner Bros. is currently looking for writers to start work on Man of Steel 2.
