In the world of entertainment, a strong legacy is often backed by a hard struggle. In many ways, it helps an artist come across as relatable and grounded in the audience’s perspective. Among them, again, are a few gems who play the role to such a degree of perfection that it seems they were born to play it. Charting such a success story for himself is Henry Cavill. The British actor has eked out a name for himself through his charismatic performances in several genres ranging from historical periods and fantasy to high-octane sci-fi.

At a time when the actor stands snubbed of his role as DC’s Superman and has departed from playing Geralt on Netflix’s The Witcher, fans, in no way, are ready to let him go. Scouting for a plausible franchise, many on Reddit opined for the 20002 flick, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Moreover, the actor’s chokehold on the genre is such that fans wanted him to helm not one but all the characters from the classic!

Taking to AI, mockups of Cavill as almost every major character from the movie floated in glee, much to fans’ content. The general consensus remained that The Witcher’s exit on his part had left a void too deep. Thus, instead of lobbying Netflix for a return, it was time for the actor to take on a new franchise.

In overwhelming support, fans gave a thumbs up to Cavill as nearly every rendition was perfect. Regardless, many missed the iconic locks on him which have now become history thanks to his Argylle hairstyle. Yet, apart from fans’ fantasies, the actor has now taken up the charge as the torch-bearer to many new franchises.

Essaying the role of Geralt, Henry Cavill left quite a much of impact over the years. Interestingly, even as AI avatars of him came as Legolas, Gandalf, and even Galadriel, fans could not believe the mark of perfection. “Henry as Legolas is just him as the Witcher,” summarized one. Meanwhile, others went quickly onboard with demands to “RELEASE THE HENRY CAVIL CUT!!!!!” Many others chimed in with, “I totally need this” and “10/10 i would watch”.

There was hardly an iota of doubt on the flip side. Although a few came across as goofy, there was nothing stopping fans from receding back in their demands. The reactions ranged from “Lost it on that last one” to “Let’s get this gofundme started!” Shedding aside the reactions, it may actually be interesting to see Cavill return to the historical/fantasy genre anytime soon. Only if he gets the time from spy thrillers and action.
