Though Henry Cavill might not be totally set in one franchise he’s currently got running, that doesn’t mean this guy isn’t a part of other major stories and plot lines on different platforms. Will he still be the Man of Steel when it’s all said and done? Who cares, because he’s still Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher. And that show is gearing up for its second season. Netflix dropped a teaser for the upcoming story and Cavill looks awesome once again in the role, intimidating and almost other-worldly.
The newest teaser for The Witcher came from the official Twitter account for the show and features a number of fast cuts that are meant to lay some of the groundwork for the upcoming season. Flashed in there are multiple looks at Henry Cavill as Rivalt as he steps out of the shadows and turns to face the viewer. There are a number of other images in there as well, including an ominous “Run” yelled from off-screen. Check out what Netflix is throwing out there to get fans pumped up for the next season.
Also, by way of a teaser, the video has the caption suggesting there are clues to what happens with Henry Cavill this season in his main role. Hardcore fans of the show immediately jumped into the comments to give their theories on what morsels and nuggets were hidden in this 12-second video. There’s a lot out there because the teaser is frankly packed with images, writing, singing, sound effects, and other odds and ends. It’s almost too much to follow, but it didn’t stop folks from trying.
This season of The Witcher is shaping up to be another massive event for Henry Cavill and Netflix. From recent rumors, and a couple of well-timed leaks from Netflix, the show does start off in a rather bloody fashion this second time around. And there will be the introduction of some new characters as well, some from outside the franchise of the game itself. In this way, it looks like the story will diverge some this time around from the source material.
Henry Cavill earned rave reviews for his portrayal of Geralt of Rivia in the first season and the fans of the games, plus new folks on the streamer were happy to jump on board. Since debuting in December of 2019, the show long held the top spot in terms of initial views on the platform and they reported that more than 76 million accounts watched at least two episodes of the first season. Safe to say, there will be quite a few eyeballs on it again when the second season releases this year.
As for Henry Cavill, though his role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe might be up in the air right now, the guy isn’t lacking for work. In fact, it’s almost like he can’t stop getting involved with big franchises. He’s set to have a bigger role in the Enola Holmes future movies, moving his Sherlock character front and center for that franchise. Plus, he’s been cast as The Highlander when that reboots as well. It’s almost like he doesn’t need DC at all.
