Henry Cavill is out of The Witcher, but concept art proves Liam Hemsworth will make for an attractive replacement when he takes over the role of Geralt.
Obviously Hemsworth will have to do a lot more than just look good to be successful in the role, but as we don't currently have any access to clips of him in action, looks are pretty much all we can go off at the moment.
Plus, let's be honest, looks are a big part of the appeal for many viewers. We've all seen Cavill's bathtub shot doing the rounds.
Hemsworth has now taken over the role following the news of Cavill's departure in October, shortly after he announced his return as Superman - an announcement which, unfortunately, is no longer true.
Cavill confirmed he actually wouldn't be returning as Superman after James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios, prompting some to wonder whether he would come back as Geralt, after all.
However, The Witcher is set to move forward as planned with its fourth season, meaning Hemsworth is left trying to fill Cavill's shoes. Or bathtub.
One fan imagined what the Australian actor would look like in concept art shared online following the announcement, with the image showing Hemsworth sporting Geralt's long white hair and silver medallion around his neck.
The artist, who goes by 83pixelstudios online, also gave Hemsworth Geralt's golden eyes and grey armour.
It's unclear whether the creators of The Witcher will mimic Cavill's version of the character so closely, but the art proves that Hemsworth can definitely pull it off if they do.
After seeing the picture, one person wrote: "To be honest, Liam Hemsworth looks more like the game character than Henry, and I was worried he wasn't going to look good."
Not all fans were as impressed, with some saying Cavill is the only Geralt for them, but hopefully Hemsworth will be able to win them over in time.
The actor expressed his excitement to be taking on the role in a post on Instagram, writing: "As a Witcher fan I’m over the moon about the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has been an incredible Geralt, and I’m honoured that he’s handing me the reins and allowing me to take up the White Wolf’s blades for the next chapter of his adventure."
Hemsworth went on to further praise Cavill, saying he'd been 'inspired by what [he] brought to this beloved character'.
"I may have some big boots to fill, but I’m truly excited to be stepping into The Witcher world," Hemsworth added.
Netflix has not confirmed when we might see Hemsworth in action as it is yet to release the third series of the show, which will mark Cavill's departure.
