There has been a lot of discussion around the exit of Henry Cavill from the Netflix show The Witcher. Fans are constantly speculating the reasons why he might have left the show when the story was at its peak. The British actor is an avid gamer and possesses extensive knowledge of the source material. So it is obvious people started pointing out that the Man of Steel star might have left the show because the creators did not go with the original work. Even many reports over the internet suggested Cavill was not satisfied with the show’s direction. However, this is not the first time the 39-year-old has left a project because of creative differences.

Back in 2015, Henry Cavill walked out of the action thriller Stratton just five days before the shooting. The reason behind this abrupt decision was that the team members did not agree on some things. “It is with great regret that we announce that Henry Cavill has pulled out of ‘Stratton’ due to creative differences on the script of the movie,” GFM Films said in a statement as reported by Variety.
