DC, 1, Netflix, 0: Henry Cavill gets replaced in The Witcher series following Superman's return to Warner movies.

It has become difficult, today, for a big headliner of an American superhero film to evolve outside the shackles that was born. In addition to Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson, it is also the case of Henry Cavill, who, after more than a decade of cinema has rubbed shoulders with Superman's red underpants in the very beautiful Man of Steel , directed by Zack Snyder in 2013.

Since? The guy went to Guy Ritchie, played the bad guys in Mission: Impossible, but above all began a parallel career on Netflix with Enola Holmes and the series The Witcher. A nice filmography in itself, however, the actor remains still and always in the lap of the man of steel, as evidenced by the recent video announcement of his great return as Superman. An announcement that also had an immediate impact on the man's career since Netflix and him revealed that his character in The Witcher series was going to be recast:

In my place, the fantastical Mr. Liam Hemsworth will don the White Wolf's cape. As with literary greats, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent playing Geralt, and with excitement to see Liam's approach to this most fascinating and nuanced man. Liam, my good sir, this character has such wonderful depth, have fun diving into it and seeing what you can find.”
