After the news broke about the transfer for the main role of The witcher from Henry Cavill to Liam Hemsworth, fans of the video game saga and TV show went wild to express their views. Among all the initiatives, a petition on Change.org stands out with which fans have asked to keep Cavill in the part of Geralt of Rivia. The petition has nearly 200,000 signatures.
Here is an excerpt from the message accompanying the petition:
Henry Cavill can’t resist the role of Geralt to focus on Superman, the Netflix producers have again made a serious decision that goes against the fans. Fans’ devotion to the source material is one of the reasons for the TV series’ success, something that showrunners and producers mock. Henry Cavill is a fan of the saga and knows what it takes to stay true to it as much as possible. We will show you our disappointment in numerical terms as we are ready to end the series and possibly also our subscriptions after the end of the third season […] We’ve already suffered from the disastrous end of Game of Thrones, don’t make the same mistake again.
