Hunky Henry Cavill has been making the rounds to promote The Witcher season two, and he appears to be on a mission to sign up for every game adaptation imaginable. Geralt? He’s never been heard of before: how about Mass Effect? His passion for Warhammer 40K leads to frequent expressions of admiration for the pastime, and he’ll even kindly correct guests who confuse it with Warcraft.
Cavill isn’t finished yet, despite all of this and his appearance. Cavill talked to GameReactor during the red carpet opening of The Witcher Season 2 in Madrid, where he was asked which games he’d want to adapt into a Netflix film or series.
“That’s a complicated one because you’re linking an IP and a company together, which is difficult to accomplish, so I don’t want to put myself in any awkward situations, but there are plenty other games out there… I’ve begun playing Red Dead Redemption 2—I know, I’m a little late to the party—but I’ve started playing it and I’m having a great time with it. As a result, I believe anything along those lines might be entertaining to adapt into a film.”
Cavill is a little too fresh-faced for Arthur Morgan, but he would make a good John Marston. The thing is, you get the impression he’d gladly volunteer to play Earthworm Jim right now. Cavill has stated that he will do as many seasons of The Witcher as Netflix will allow him, so anticipate lots more of this now that the show’s scripts for season three have been completed and the show’s popularity is at an all-time high. Next, someone should question him about Max Payne.
