That Henry Cavill will cease to be Geralt of Rivia It is a reality that we are going to have to accept. As much as you kick, get angry and ask for the head of those responsible for Netflix, our beloved (and geek) actor has already announced his departure and there is no turning back. The person in charge of collecting the witness will be Liam Hemsworth (brother -and decal- of Thor himself), but what if they let us fans propose another actor for the paper? Have you thought if someone could be a better fit as the Warlock? Here are our candidates.
an unexpected march
It is no secret that Henry Cavill is a true lover of books and the history of The Witcher. The actor has turned out to be quite a geeky and freaky guy, a lover of video games, an inveterate reader of fantastic sagas and even a fan of painting miniatures. With such a prolific profile, it is not surprising that he was a fan of the sorcerer sagaso that he did not think twice when Netflix asked him to participate in its adaptation to the small screen, giving life to Geralt of Rivia himself.
They say that the conditions of their participation always revolved around preserving the faithfulness of the books and the character and, in fact, some media say that this has been what has led to his departure from fiction. A team of directors and writers uncommitted to the story (even disrespectful to it) has ended up breaking Cavill’s patience, who has preferred to leave rather than be forced to play a sullied Geralt in favor of the Show.
Other publications indicate that their new professional commitments are incompatible with Netflix’s agenda – he recently confirmed that he will put on the Superman suit again and the possibility that he picks up the witness as Agent 007 grows by the day – and finally, there are the media that ensure that it is a mixture of everything above what has ended up propitiating his departure.
Be that as it may, good old Henry is gone and the third season of The Witcher It will be the last we see him.
Is there a better replacement than Liam Hemsworth?
The announcement of Cavill’s departure came hand in hand with the confirmation that Liam Hemsworth -on these lines- will be the new Geralt of Rivia. And the Bethlehem was armed. Much of the fandom shows contrary for the actor to pick up the witness and there are even surveys in which it is collected that a 81.9% of fans they will stop watching the series if Cavill does not star in it. Others are somewhat more benevolent and at least indicate (by 66%) that Liam will simply not be a good Geralt.
Putting things this way, we have set out to find alternatives with these actors:
The British actor rose to fame for his role in Sons of Anarchy, where he plays Jax Teller. Because of his physique and aura, He would undoubtedly be a good Geralt and in fact it is something that was already discussed at the time when it was learned that Cavill was taking the role -because no, Henry was not convincing either at the beginning. he is ours favorite option for being perhaps also the least mediatic.
What to say about charismatic Danish actor. Mikkelsen has been building a resume in which practically everything he touches becomes a success, being a person capable of giving a lot of personality to any character he plays. Maybe even too much for Geralt, who knows.
We don’t know if his style too Elegant could be a problem playing the Witcher, but Hamm, known for his fantastic role as Don Draper in Mad Men, could also wear Geralt’s clothes with pride and poise. We have no doubt.
This Lannister could fit the role well, although we fear that the role of Kingslayer. Even so, there is no lack of voices that assure that they could be a good alternative to give life to the protagonist of The Witcher.
We know that Karl is fully into the role of Billy Butcher in TheBoys (from Amazon Prime Video), but its capacity chameleon shown during these years of profession makes us think that he would not have problems in let long hair and go white. Think about it for a moment…
