Henry Cavill, who is popularly known for his role in DCU as Superman, never hesitated to talk about his love and passion for games. The actor even shared that he almost missed the opportunity to be the Man of Steel in the 2013 film. He shared that he ignored the call cause he was playing World of Warcraft and called back as soon as he realized that he was getting a call from Zack Snyder. The Witcher star reportedly left the Netflix show after the writers mocked the source material.
So Cavill did not hesitate to correct Graham Norton when he mispronounced the name of one of his favorite games. He also made it clear that no matter what people say the game is fun and nothing can change his mind about it.

Henry Cavill Corrected Graham Norton
After featuring as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher, Henry Cavill made an appearance on The Graham Norton Show in 2021. While talking about some nerdy habits of Hollywood celebrities, the host started talking about Cavill’s love for Warhammer 40,000. Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop and the most popular miniature game in the world.
He asked while poking fun at the Man of Steel star by saying, “You paint…is it War…World of Warcraft?” Cavill corrects the host simply by saying, “Warhammer. It’s Warhammer.” Graham Norton then asks if players need to paint the figures or if they come like that.

Answering his question the Enola Holmes star said, “You have to paint them. It’s just how much effort you put into it.” He then explained that there is a “painting side of the hobby” and there is “gaming side of the hobby.”
The Mission Impossible star further explained, “Then you put them together in little armies and you fight against someone else’s army.” Listening to his explanation, the host burst into laughter. Cavill made sure to tell him that it may sound ridiculous but it’s actually a lot of fun.
However, the host was a little flustered when Tom Holland asked the Justice League star if he could come over and play the game with him. Cavill gladly invited him for a game of Warhammer 40,000.

The Dawn of Justice star recently made his comeback as Superman. However, soon after his return as Superman, it was revealed that Cavill would not be playing Geralt of Rivia after the third season of The Witcher. Henry Cavill reportedly left the show due to his return as Superman.
However, there were also rumors that the actor and the writers of The Witcher had some sort of disagreement. It was reported that the Immortals star quit the show after the writers of the show purposely mocked the source material.
And during his 2021 appearance on The Graham Norton Show, when he was asked if he corrects people on the set of The Witcher, he said, “I am effusive about getting the… being loyal to the source material. Let’s put it that way.”
The statement can explain the reason the Night Hunter star decided to leave the Netflix show after the writers reportedly disrespected the source material. Although the Stardust actor has announced his departure from the Netflix show, fans will get to see him as Geralt of Rivia in the third season of The Witcher.
The Witcher is available to stream on Netflix. The Witcher Season 3 is expected to release in 2023.
