The Witcher season 4 deepfake prepares for Henry Cavill's exit, Hemsworth's face

Putting together a Witcher season 4 deepfake in preparation for Henry Cavill's exit by adding Liam Hemsworth's face to pre-existing footage of The Witcher.

There are now deepfakes of The Witcher season 4 to help prepare Henry Cavill for the loss of Geralt of Rivia. With Henry Cavill stepping down and Liam Hemsworth taking over, the show will undergo a massive transformation. While season 3 will still feature Cavill in the role, there has been a public outcry over the recasting issues Netflix has been grappling with.

While Cavill's The Witcher exit is a bad omen for the show, YouTuber Stryder HD created a deepfake to show off Hemsworth as Geralt. Check out the video below:

The effect is stunning and surprisingly, it looks very similar to Cavill's performance on the show. Since Hemsworth almost landed the role before Cavill, it makes sense that he would be a perfect fit for Geralt.

Why Is Henry Cavill Leaving The Witcher?

While initial speculation revolved around the notion that Cavill would leave The Wizard to focus on his role as Superman, new information from the DC Universe suggests this is not the case. After all, Cavill is no longer affiliated with the DCU. In fact, DC Studios co-head James Gunn has announced that DC A younger Superman is being cast.

This cost Cavill two major roles in just a few months. However, despite the turmoil, Cavill is reportedly not planning to return to The Witcher anytime soon. Instead, Hemsworth will remain in the role once season 4 arrives. Cavill will focus on short-term projects including Argylle, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, The Rosie Project and Squadron 42.

Reports indicate that Cavill left The Witcher due to creative differences, which is not surprising. After all, Cavill has always loved the books, and would likely be vehemently opposed to any major changes. The real reason Cavill left The Wizard was that his personal artistic desires clashed with other creators. Unfortunately, it's the naked reality of Hollywood that gives Hemsworth a chance to shine.
