Speaking to IGN during a recent press junket for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Cavill was asked if he might be interested in playing Geralt in Netflix’s adaptation, in which Cavill replied by saying, “Absolutely. Yeah, that would be an amazing role.” He went on to say that he also enjoyed the game, “The Witcher 3. I just replayed all the way through. Love that game. Really good game.”
Cavill has been pretty candid about his love of video games in the past. He admitted during an interview that he had almost missed the opportunity to play as Superman when he was too busy playing World of Warcraft to answer Zack Snyder’s phone call which was about the role. He also revealed that he had read the books in which the game is based on. “The books are amazing. The books are really, really good… The books I started reading, and they are well worth a read.”
That being said, the upcoming series on Netflix will actually be based on the books written by Andrzej Sapkowski, as opposed to the game, so it might be different from what players remember.
