It may shock a lot when I say that there was a time when I didn’t like Henry Cavill.
Honestly, I really couldn’t tell you why Cavill’s love wasn’t there. What was everyone seeing that I wasn’t? It was probably only in the last few years that my affection for him started to grow. While I can’t put my finger on why I didn’t like him (although I would bet on pure contrarianism), I’m now very sure I have a crush on him:
He is a huge nerd.
When Cavill was originally announced to play Geralt on Netflix The witcher, public opinion was mixed. Some congratulated each other and were delighted with the news, including Cavill himself who was in heaven. Others were far from being convinced. The situation was summed up perfectly by Kotaku user beatsbynelly who wrote:
However, we soon learned that Cavill is a great Geralt and Netflix. The witcher is pretty darn good, with positive ratings and reviews all around. Another thing to note is that those working on the series are quite open to how much Cavill loves the video game series and even the books, with that of the witcher Freya Allan mentioning in an interview with Fortress of Solitude that Cavill is like “a witcher’s bible.” We would do a scene and he would say, “We should use this line from page 253 of Blood of Elves.” Man doesn’t just play, he bed.
In addition to his work on The witcher, it’s clear that Cavill is a big jerk. You might remember last year when The witcher was between filming, and the actor decided to bless the world with a five-minute video of himself building a gaming PC.
Of course, you don’t have to be a nerd to build a gaming PC. Maybe. It’s a pretty cheesy thing to do, respectfully. However, his endless love for War hammer is something else. It is fairly well known information that Henry Cavill is a huge War hammer fan, to paint minis to gently correct Graham Norton that it is War hammer, not World of warcraft.
At a recent press conference for The witcher season 2, Cavill expressed great interest to IGN in being a part of War hammer TV show or movie, if a live action project were to see the light of day. “There are a lot of characters from War hammer the universe I want to be. But I can only really be one, because once I am one, I cannot be others. So if that was to happen, if there was to be something live, I should be very aware of it. “
He keeps on, “[Warhammer] is obviously rich in characters, and especially the 40K universe. I guess I could play a different character from the Warhammer fantasy the universe against the 40K the universe, but I’m only dreaming now. I should talk to the guys at Games Workshop and see what happens.
He dreams, I dream, we all dream here.
With the news from Amazon seeking to make a Mass Effect TV series, we find once again Henry Cavill interested in throwing his hat in the ring. Speaking to GamesRadar + at a press event, Cavill said, âAlright, yeah, it all depends on how they perform it. The world of adaptation can be heavy or light. like a product, I prefer the adaptation to be less modified from the source, so it all depends.
So as long as they don’t mess up the source material, the man is enthusiastic.
Look, I don’t know if it’s a good idea to have a guy on every video game TV show. But I’ll tell you what I love: the appreciation of games in Hollywood from a Chad with great nerd energy.
