‘The Witcher’ Trailer: Netflix Announces Release Date for Fantasy Series
‘The Witcher’ Trailer: Netflix Announces Release Date for Fantasy SeriesNetflix’s “The Witcher” series is based off the hit Polish fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, which center on monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), who gets wrapped up in a continent-spanning tale of heroics and political intrigue. As a witcher, Geralt is ostracized for his supernatural abilities, but “The Witcher” isn’t a superhero tale in the vein of recent Marvel projects. Sapkowski’s world of monsters and magic is adult-oriented and morally grey, and “The Witcher” seems like it will be a fairly faithful recreation of the author’s fantasy setting.

Although there have been reports Henry Cavill would not reprise his role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe following Justice League, the actor says he isn't ready to give up the part yet. "I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on," Cavill told Men 's Health.
Everybody’s been saying it: Henry Cavill is no longer Superman. The one person who hasn’t said that, though, is Henry Cavill himself. And now, in a new interview, the current cinematic Man of Steel sets the record straight.

Last year, reports surfaced that after three movies, Cavill was done playing the iconic DC character. However, after those reports spread like wildfire, both Warner Bros. (the company that controls Superman) and Cavill himself provided non-binding responses. You can read all about it in the below link.

Now the actor is reiterating that he remains committed to playing the part, despite not being announced in any future Warner Bros. titles since the studio shook up its DC empire in the wake of the 2017 film’s critical and box I’ve not given up the role.

Henry Cavill isn't ready to give up on the role of Superman . While his counterpoint Caped Crusader has exited the DC Universe, Cavill has more In an interview with Men 's Health, the British actor said he wants to return to DC even as the studio is moving away from its flagship characters following the
Basically, that was it. The issue was left up in the air over a year ago. Since then, Cavill filled much of his time playing Geralt for Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of The Witcher. And so the rumors—which Cavill is now addressing—largely just kind of became fact.
“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on,” Cavill said. “I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”
“When?” would be the common response to that question and the answer is “we don’t know.” We aren’t even sure if Cavill knows. The last time Cavill played the role was in Justice League, a film he admits in the same interview “didn’t work.”
Henry appointed Montreal Impact coach
Thierry Henry has been appointed as the new head coach of MLS side Montreal Impact. The 42-year-old, who spent four-and-a-half years with the New York Red Bulls before ending his career in 2014, has signed a two-year deal with the option for an extra 12 months.After agreeing to the move, Henry said: "It's an honour to coach the Montreal Impact and return to MLS. It's a league I know well, in which I had some very nice moments."To be in Quebec, in Montreal, which has an enormous multicultural heritage, it's extraordinary. I've always kept an eye on the club and now I'm here.
For all the problems with Justice League — and there were many — most agree that Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman was not one of them. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman

Since then, the DC Films has mostly righted its ship. Aquaman was a massive hit. Shazam (which almost featured a Cavill cameo) was well-received. New Batman and Suicide Squad movies are in the works. It’s anyone’s guess where Superman could fit into that—but it sounds like Cavill wants to be part of that conversation.
We’re sure to hear more from the actor as he continues to promote The Witcher, which hits Netflix on December 20. And for much more on Cavill, like how he intimidated Ben Affleck while working out during Justice League, head to that Men’s Health piece.
