Henry Cavill has garnered a massive fandom in the past two decades. In recent months, fans have shown unwavering support to the British superstar when he needed it most. The actor made some tough decisions and handed over the torch of his iconic character Geralt from Netflix’s The Witcher to Liam Hemsworth. Though Cavill himself elected to step away from the role, fans kept on demanding his return to the show. But now when he has returned with a new project months after his exit, fans do not seem to support him like they used to do always.

The official page of the Discussing Film recently rolled out some new pictures of Henry Cavill from Argylle. The post showed snapshots of the trailer that dropped on social media just hours back. It revealed the new look that he took to play the titular character in the spy action comedy. Before this, fans got the first glimpse of his outlook on the picture he shared on Instagram to tell fans about the release date.

The teaser showed the 40-year-old teaming up with Dua Lipa, who has got an essential role for the first time. It hinted at the possibility of the Grammy winner playing an antagonist of sorts in the movie. Or maybe another spy following the famous author Elly Conway, whose fantasy books came to life, turning the world upside down. For months, fans have hyped this project, but when it finally shared sneak peeks, they did not like their beloved star in it.
