Liam Hemsworth replaces Henry Cavill in The Witcher deepfake 'first look'

Liam Hemsworth replaces Henry Cavill in The Witcher deepfake 'first look'

A fan-made deepfake video gives us our first look at Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher series from Netflix.

Liam Hemsworth has already replaced Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's The Witcher series in this fan-made deepfake 'first look'.

The Witcher's third season is expected to arrive this coming summer. Sadly, however, this will be the last time we’ll see Man of Steel and Justice League star Henry Cavill as Geralt. Liam Hemsworth, brother of Chris Hemsworth, has been cast in the leading role of Geralt from season four onwards.

Speaking of The Witcher, we think Ciri deserves her own game. Take a look why below.

However, at the time of writing, we’ve not seen what Liam Hemsworth will look like as Geralt of Rivia. Well, at least not officially anyway. Thankfully, as reported by UNILAD, some fans have taken matters into their own hands and have deepfaked Liam Hemsworth into The Witcher series on Netflix.

A deepfake video was uploaded to the YouTube channel, stryder HD offering a side-by-side comparison of Cavill vs Hemsworth. It takes some getting used to. Especially as we’re already used to Cavill playing the White Wolf. I suppose it doesn't help that in the deepfake video, we’re hearing Cavill’s voice for obvious reasons. Still, this deepfake gives us the best look at what’s to come until we get out first official peak.

In fairness, perhaps if Liam Hemsworth was originally cast as Geralt (and apparently he nearly was), and Cavill was the replacement, we’d have similar reservations. Hopefully, when Hemsworth assumes the role in season four, he’ll knock it out of the park and erase all doubts.

However, if previous reports are accurate, Liam Hemsworth may only be playing Geralt of Rivia for two seasons with rumours of the series ending with season five.

In related news, the developers of the video game series, CD Projekt Red had to address a new-gen update that made genitalia overly realistic which was apparently added to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt by mistake. Yikes!
