In case you missed it, Henry Cavill has officially confirmed that he will no longer be returning as Superman despite previously announcing that he is getting ready to work on Man of Steel 2. Not surprisingly, people are disappointed with the news considering that it is believed that Superman's return was the reason why Cavill left The Witcher in the first place. Still, fans are now calling for the Justice League actor to be reinstated as the Netflix show's Geralt of Rivia.
Henry Cavill recently took to his official Instagram account to confirm the news, revealing that he will not be returning as Superman. "My turn to wear the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for never will," Cavill wrote, adding that "it's been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards."
It's certainly devastating for those who were expecting Henry Cavill to appear in more DC projects as the Man of Steel. Still, it wasn't a surprise when fans began pointing out that now that he's free, Cavill should return as Geralt of Rivia in the fourth season of The Witcher.
At this point, it is unlikely that Cavill will be brought back in The Witcher after his highly publicized exit from the Netflix show. In addition to that, it has been officially announced that Liam Hemsworth will be taking over the role in The Witcher Season 4.
For now, it is unclear whether Henry Cavill has other projects lined up without Man of Steel 2 and The Witcher. Nevertheless, we're hoping that the actor gets back on his feet soon and finds a new movie or show to work on. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Henry Cavill is still set to return as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Season 3. The third season has not yet been given an official release date but is expected to return on Netflix in 2023.
