There are some roles that are iconic, and actors would go to lengths to play those roles. For instance, with Daniel Craig not returning as James Bond, actors are in line to play the iconic character. In the same way, Witcher is also another iconic character that received an immense amount of love from the viewers. Well, Liam Hemsworth will appear as the lead in the show.

It is not an accident that Hemsworth bagged the role. He had already auditioned for it, but the show makers loved Cavill the most. Therefore, they chose the Superman actor over Hemsworth. However, it is uncertain if Hemsworth was in the top 3 or top 5 on the list of supposed actors. But, at last, he got it and his fans are also on cloud nine to see their favorite actor playing the iconic role in The Witcher. It seems the producers must have gone back to the casting tapes for the role of Geralt and they liked Hemsworth.

However, Cavill fans have enough time to process and accept the shocking news before they would see a new face as Geralt of Rivia. While season 3 of the show is still in the post-production phase, the fourth season is likely to film after some time now.
