In an apparent bid to retain her relevance following the collapse of G4’s recent revival attempt, former network host Indiana “Frosk” Black has attempted – and failed – to frame former Netflix’s The Witcher star Henry Cavill as ‘problematic’.
After three seasons of watching Netflix butcher author Andrzej Sapkowski original work, Cavill announced his exit from the streaming giant’s live-action adaptation of The Witcher on October 29th.
Taking to his personal Instagram account, the Superman actor informed fans that “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4.”
“In my stead, the fantastic Mr Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf,” he then revealed. “As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Geralt and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this most fascinating and nuanced of men.”
Concluding his post with a well-wish for the Hunger Games star, Cavill asserted, “Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.”
While many met this news with a mixture of emotions ranging from regret towards the wasted potential of his casting to relief that the actor no longer had to work with such bastardized material, Frosk saw an opportunity to virtue signal.
“Henry Cavil said some very questionable things around #MeToo and dated a 19 year old as 30+,” wrote the former Xplay host. “Seeing people throw themselves at his feet for The Witcher is weird. The show is whatever at best.”
