On the other hand, the star also signed a new movie titled Guy Ritchie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. But if the immortal actor is really done with TV shows, fans would be very disappointed. That would also nullify all fan wishes to spot him in one Game of Thrones based spin off. It suggests that the actor will remain committed only to major theater projects from now on.
Some sources also claim that there may be other reasons for him to leave the role, most likely because the creators didn’t have a good attitude towards the source materials of The Witcher. It was said by a former producer and writer of the show, Beau DeMayo himself, that the showrunners dislike the works of Andrzej Sapkoswski and the games from CD Projekt Red. While Henry Cavill is a die-hard fan of theirs and even promoted the role, which may prove to be a possible reason for his departure.
