The departure of Henry Cavill of the adaptation of The Witcherofficially to devote himself to the new Superman which he takes over the role, still does not pass with his fans. The petition launched at the beginning of the month is still collecting more signatures to obtain the return of the star actor in the series produced by Netflix.
More and more fans want to voice their displeasure
The frustration does not seem to subside after the announcement at the end of October that Geralt of Rivia will be played by someone other than Henry Cavill from season 4. Since then, many rumors circulated on the web to explain this sudden departure because the Superman actor is a notorious fan of the universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski. A petition had also been launched shortly after to to demand his return, and also to replace the screenwriterssingled out for their calamitous writing and lack of respect for the original material. What rekindle the trauma of the last season of Game of Thrones.
The petition seems to be attracting more and more people. While it had garnered over 130,000 signatures about a week after its launch, at the time of writing, just under a month later, the number of signatories now reaches 259,400. The objective of 300,000 signatures does not seem very far away.
While the actual impact of change.org petitions is debatable, it nonetheless shows thatan ever-increasing number of people are not satisfied with this departure. The reactions on Twitter were also not long in coming, and already demonstrated all the rumors that could run about the hidden reasons for this departure.
Indeed, many people have insisted that Henry Cavill, as a fan of the saga The Witcher, could not give up such a role. Otherwise, important names in this universe have expressed regret and surprise about this change, such as Doug Cockle, voice actor of the witcher in the English version of the CD Projekt Red games, or even Andrzej Sapkowski himself who dubbed Henry Cavill in the character he created.
But what has undoubtedly set fire to the powder are the words of Beau DeMayowho worked on the animated film The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf :
I’ve worked on series – notably Witcher – where some of the writers had little or no appreciation for all of the books and games (and even actively mocked the source material).
Enough to fuel speculation, especially when Henry Cavill himself insisted on his desire to stay true to the original storywhich would have involved many disagreements with the production.
Waiting to find out the new interpretation of Liam Hemsworth from season 4, we can always console ourselves with the trailer for this new series The Witcher still produced by Netflix, or volume 4 of the CD Projekt Red games.
