With the Superman suit being robbed away from Henry Cavill by Warner Brothers, the Man of Steel is trying his best to get the most out of Netflix’s unconfirmed ‘The Witcher’ Season 3.
Henry Cavill has run out of his superpowers as DCEU’s Superman. Warner Brothers are all set to rob him of his Superman suit, even when it just doesn’t seem right to look at anyone else in that suit apart from Henry Cavill with his commanding persona. But considering his shrinking stance as the most wanted Hollywood actor after the Superman debacle, Henry Cavill is trying to squeeze out as much as possible from Netflix’s ‘The Witcher‘ Season 3; which is all confirmed – but not officially.
Since Superman is rebooting without Henry Cavill, the Man of Steel actor is trying to squeeze out more from Netflix’s The Witcher Season 3’.
- Henry Cavill asks for more from Netflix for ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 – Superman effects?
- Is ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 even confirmed?
- Does the showrunner have plans for ‘The Witcher’ beyond season 3?
Henry Cavill asks for more from Netflix for ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 – Superman effects?
As per some of the latest reports, Henry Cavill is trying to negotiate a better deal for Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 post the superman debacle.
It’s almost certain that the recently announced J.J. Abrams’ Superman reboot won’t star Henry Cavill. At the same time, Warner Bros. seems to be in no mood of having Henry Cavill back to continue his version of Superman beyond Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League‘.
In that case, it’s only ‘The Witcher’ on which Cavill is relying.
As reported by “We Got This Covered“:
“Insider Daniel Richtman is claiming that the actor is trying to negotiate an even better deal for season 3, following the news that Superman is being rebooted without his involvement.”
Previously, it was reported that Henry Cavill officially earned $400,000 per episode for ‘The Witcher’ Season 1. Considering that season 1 went on to become the most successful Netflix original ever, there’s no questioning the obviously increased pay for season 2.
Moreover, Cavill is rumoured to be earning over half a million dollars for each episode in season 2 – which already makes him one of the highest-paid actors for a TV series.
Is ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 even confirmed?
Season 1 of ‘The Witcher’ premiered on Netflix in December 2019. The show based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski became an overnight sensation on Netflix. However, Netflix had already renewed season 2 well in advance.
“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri.”“Variety” reported showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich revealing:
The success of season 1 further approved Netflix’s renewal decision. But the question is, has Netflix also renewed the show for season 3?
Reports of Cavill negotiating a better deal for ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 after the Superman letdown definitely hints at something.
Does the showrunner have plans for ‘The Witcher’ beyond season 3?
Currently, there is no official announcement for ‘The Witcher’ Season 3. However, several reports claim that Netflix allowed 3-season in one go to the showrunner.
Back in July 2019, the reliable insider KC Walsh, @TheComixKid, claimed through a tweet that:
“I’ve heard it got the Sabrina deal and is already re-upped for 3 seasons.”
There has been no official development regarding ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 since then. But in October 2020,
“Season 3 of The Witcher has been added to the database of the Writers Guild of America.”Redanian Intelligence reported:
With Henry Cavill unfortunately free from the Superman date issues, ‘The Witcher’ Season 3 announcement should be on the way.
While it’s wise not to already expect anything beyond season 3, ‘The Witcher’ does hold scope for 7-seasons. As revealed by the showrunner himself, he has the story for all seven seasons mapped out.
“I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons, right now it’s just about, ‘how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time? The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one. And not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”
Still, let’s not raise our expectations, and wait for the official announcements.
While it’s heartbreaking that Henry Cavill might not return as Superman again, him returning to Netflix as ‘The Witcher’ for a season 3 and beyond should compensate for it. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.
