this isnt about Superman, he's said he'd do both. This is probably a decision based on the showrunners open disdain for the books, games, and the fans themselves, while Henry himself loves Geralt and the books, they obviously don't care about the world in the same way he does

I'd rather wait a couple years while he's doing Superman or cancel the show. 🤦♀️

Just cancel this disaster of a show. Henry was the only good thing about it. Dude carried the joke thing alone.

Well, it’s not all Superman but more because Henry Cavill wanted to stay true to the source material and the showrunners don’t. This is the most accurate reason of why…
