The Witcher Season 3 poster shows first look at Henry Cavill

A close up of Henry Cavill as Geralt in The WitcherNetflix

We just received our first look at Henry Cavill in his final season of The Witcher thanks to Season 3’s newly released poster.

For the past two seasons, Henry Cavill has received critical acclaim for his performance as Geralt of Rivia, a magically enhanced monster hunter known as The Witcher.

However, Cavill announced his departure from the series last October after confirming that he would be returning to the role of Superman in the DC Universe. But, sadly, Cavill would not be returning to the role of Superman as he originally planned. Though his Superman made an appearance in the credits scene of Black Adam, his next Superman-led movie was derailed when ​​James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios in November 2022. Gunn and Safran’s new Superman movie will see the hero as a young reporter in the beginning of his superhero career, which unfortunately left no room for Cavill as he would be much older than their version of Clark Kent. The decision to scrap Cavill’s Superman movie did not lead to the actor wanting to return to The Witcher, so the role will be taken over by Liam Hemsworth when it returns for Season 4.

The Witcher, based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, follows Geralt of Rivia as he navigates a fantasy world where people tend to be worse than the beasts he hunts. While he tries to live a life in solitude, his world is forever changed when he meets a powerful sorceress and charming princess. Together, they must face their intertwined destinies.
