      Well well well... It hits different today when Geralt himself only mentions how awesome the fighting will be in season 3 and nothing of the stories.
      I honor, respect --- and MOURN-- his decision to leave.
      Keeping to lore is important to some people. I don't count myself among them in all cases but when it brings a perfect actor for Geralt to leave in nothing short of protest, then I cannot help to find myself quite furious with the moron writers and showrunners. May they always wake up with spiders in their mouths.

    This didn鈥檛 age well 馃槴I can tell you now that I won鈥檛 watch a Superman film without Henry. To tell him he鈥檚 back in and then mere weeks later pull the rug out from under him. That must have made him feel so embarrassed. I love this guy. He鈥檚 so genuine, such an absolute super fan of the characters he plays.

      Well done you. Show Hollywood that it can't abuse people and get away with it.
      In New Zealand the right-wing government of the day changed employment contract law to appease Warner Brothers during the making of the Lord of the Rings franchise - with Peter Jackson's support. I swore to never see another of his films despite seeing the first two in support of the kiwi director.
      I haven't and never will again.

      He has nothing to be embarrassed about. DC made his role official and he didn't believe it would be otherwise. It's DC who ought to be embarrassed being this indefinitely stupid and crafty.

    What a bittersweet moment. People cheering loud at his portrayal as Geralt... and then two days later we discover he is leaving the show. But you can't really blame the man since the Netflix writers' room is doing their hardest at butchering the amazing source material. Good on him for finding a way out and to a bigger paycheck.

And I am very sad that he is leaving The Witcher I have watched season 1 and 2 at least 15 times and the reason I do watch it is because of Henry.

      Also the fact the only thing he praised about the Witcher 3rd season is action is also telling a lot between the lines. It sounds like - the world's and story adaptation is insulting the Sapkowski's work, but at least you can enjoy the fights. The petitions to hire him back and fire the writers instead has already over 1/4 million signatures. It may not change much, and the showrunner will probably not care - but Netflix might look at it's cracking reputation - thought I have no illusions about them either.

No BS, no "look at me, look at me. Look at what I got" He deserves every bit of fame, success, wealth, and appreciation he's gotten, and more. Happy for him that he's returning as Superman.. and I'll be the first one to see his return. GIVE US MAN OF STEEL 2!!!!!

    Henry is such a good person and a class act. Definitely has the appropriate personality to carry the Superman character and legacy. As a side note, he avoided commenting on how bad ROP is, you can tell he knows, but you will never catch him talking bad about anything or anyone.

    I feel that from 45:22 Henry might be having the Witcher in mind. He did the right thing quitting the Witcher. The showrunner turned out to be a very incompetent person, making one mistake after another, pushing her own agenda. I don't really understand how comes that Netflix made her a person in charge since she clearly had said she is even not into the fantasy genre? And the writers - shame on you. The only good thing is that Henry's Witcher won hearts of many new fans.

      Galad Ballcrusher 4 months ago +4

      @Noblelox i think part of the issue is way Henry put it that Gerrald apart of being anti hero has a penchant to being an amateur philisopher which is very hard to showcase by the grunts the screenplay allows him. Don't know if internal monologue would help but current durection taken makes for a very misleading representation of the character that partly can be counterballanced in a tv adaptation by careful visual clues, body language and generally third party etc exposition but having screenwritters who care more to put their own mark (or follow their own social agenda) than respect the material (and try to circumvent the linitations of medium differences) surelly does not help.

    • Marnie Dell
      Marnie Dell 4 months ago

      You're honestly believing it was the writer's fault? Just so you know, He claimed he had covid for the production to halt on TW to go wear the Superman suit. He's after the money not his "passion"

    • Noblelox
      Noblelox 4 months ago +1

      @Lando Tucker In my opinion, rightly so. I find the books to be very poorly written and they have been a drag to get through. They are very much similar to Harry Potter in that the world is fantastic, but the books are relatively poor at illuminating that world. As for Henry preferring Geralt from the books, I can see the appeal of playing an anti-hero rather than a hero, but I doubt the show would be this successful with Geralt being a childish, sulking tantrum thrower. The fact that he is so old and experienced usually does serve to knock the edges off and promote mindfulness and the Geralt we get does match the experiences the character has had in life. Yes he is probably really damaged too, but I don't think that darker tone would have helped the story.

  • J Duke

    It's great that he recognizes the importance of being the public face of the man who plays Superman and the sort of responsibility that implies being of course the greatest (albeit fictional) superhero of all time and that he respects that. Very down to earth and very much one of us.

I cannot wait for Henry Cavill鈥檚 future as the greatest portrayal of this inspiring character! He deserves it!

      Thing is, Snyders directing style helped make Man of Steel what it was. DC seems to despise Snyder for whatever reason, and the choice of director can make or break an IP. Is there any indication that Snyder would be involved in Henry's portrayal of Superman in the future?

    Honestly sucks that he won't play Geralt anymore, it will honestly not be the same without him. He had such a personal take on Geralt, and it felt like he really enjoyed the role.

    Henry Cavill just embodies every aspect of Superman. The fact that he never gave up hope in wearing the cape again, and was so grateful and humbled by all the love, while still being charming as ever, it's like Clark walked out from the comic panels and entered our world. It's amazing to me we've been robbed of 5 years of his work thanks to executive pettiness. Still better late than never.

    His acting in the witcher is one of the best acting I've ever seen, it's caressing the soul to watch such a brilliant acting. The audience cheering when the topic of the witcher vs anything else comes up says it all... The witcher will be his lifetime best performance, he grabbed it like he won't grab anything else... He's always good in any of his movies, but in the witcher he's completely next level,... Another scale even...

      The good thing is that, so far, Zack Snyder mostly focused on Superman, while Clark Kent is rarely shown except when with his mother or Lois. So, there's plenty of room to show what he does for fun. I hope they lean into that in Man of Steel 2.

      @Sarnatuile He might have to lean into a modern version of dorky, maybe talk about playing videogames or warhammer or something. If there's one flaw the man has, its just that he can't look uncool. Having Clark Kent be a nerd might be the way to go.

    45:20 he was talking about Witcher for sure and you can tell how it personally affected him by the tone of his voice and how serious he was saying that. It's clear that working with the witcher crew any further went against his values as an actor and as a fan of the Witcher franchise.

    Henry Cavill is a fantastic individual and I love his care for the work he does. I think it's such a shame Netflix has done so much to make the Witcher uncompromising. He is the best realistic embodiment of Geralt and all the love for the character and the lore. I hope that Netflix changes things around and gives this man his role back with more liberties over the show. Until then, I'm excited to see him be Superman once again!

    I remember when I was severely sick and recovering from a fatal disease back in 2013. I used to watch Man of Steel on a daily basis, at least once a day to keep my spirit up.
    I used to look at Cavil as Superman and think, "Man, I wish I was as strong as him. No disease would affect me." I was fourteen years old back then. A teenager. Time flies.

      @Spectra Yeah it really sucks. He loves the games and books. That's one of the main reasons why he played the role so well. Helps he looks and sounds like the version of the game to a extent. Having Geralt played by Henry than Liam is just such a step down in my opinion. Again look wise it plays a massive difference.

    Henry and McQuarrie doing a Superman film together would be incredible. Especially with the way Henry describes how McQuarrie can evolve a story as he is filming. His detail and innovation to do things differently and applying that work ethic and mentality to filming Superman (along with source material) would be amazing. If you see his work on the Mission: Impossible films, you know how good McQuarrie is. I truly believe he is going to be our director for Superman and take things to a whole new level.

      @novela collection It'd be awesome but this idea is long done. James Gunn is DC's new president now and Henry Cavill will no longer be Superman. So we all have to move on now from this idea. Gunn wants his Superman to be a bit younger and rightfully so, if you have a 10-year plan for DC Films that you are working on.

    The news of Cavill back as Superman is absolutely perfect timing. What I absolutely love is not only does he look the part of the character but as a person Cavill is just a good guy plain and simple - he embodies so much of the Superman character in himself. But not only that he loves playing Superman - you can tell it means so much to him.
    If you've seen the videos of him building his PC, geeking out on Warhammer or talking of his love for The Witcher games he is the literal "King of the Nerds".
    To know he loves and is honoured playing probably the most iconic superhero of all time is heart-warming for all Nerds like me around the world.
    Cant wait to see him donning the red and blue again.

    Henry's comment about Rings of Power being that it's "beautiful", suggests to me that he's not crazy about its writing and story. It's true, the visuals are very nice (millions of dollars of production value can do that), but for someone like Henry Cavill, who is quite big on lore accuracy, I would not be surprised if he felt a bit let down by the show. This is the guy who had to fight the writers and creative team behind the Witcher to keep it more accurate.

    This is crushing!
    Henry, you were great. Easily one of the best things about the DCEU. Sadly the best actors could not save the train wreck the DCEU had mutated into. I just hope all the executives will get kicked out and replaced, too. They turned a license to print money with amazing films about iconic characters into an abomination without direction.
    Best of luck for your future endeavors. I hope you will find a work environment that treats you well and appreciates your knowledge and dedication to source material.

    I'm happy for Henry that he's back as Superman. But this experience has also made me kinda sad for Brandon Routh. Back in the early 2000's, he also embodied a Superman of his era. He had the looks, the bearing, the attitude. He may not have been the most brilliant actor, but the script didn't exactly bring out the best out of anyone on that production. Because it didn't take off, neither did his career really.
