Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra and Joey Batey took the stage in Brazil for Netflix’s annual global fan event Tudum.
the cast of The Wizard premiered an exclusive clip from the upcoming third season of the series. The nearly three-minute video shows Geralt de Rivia (Cavill), Cirilla de Cintra (Allan) and Yennefer de Vengerber (Chalotra) joining forces against Dandelion (Batey). Together, they use his powers to defeat Viscount Lettenhove and his group of fighters.
The third season of the fantasy drama, based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of books and game adaptations, follows Geralt as he takes Cirilla into hiding to protect his newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it, according to Netflix.
“Charged with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where they hope to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers,” the logline reads. “Instead, they discover that they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, black magic and treason. They must strike back, risk everything, or risk being lost forever.”
In October, Cavill announced that he was leaving. The Wizard, and Liam Hemsworth would assume his role in the fourth season. “As with the greatest of literary characters, I pass the torch with reverence for my time as Geralt and with excitement to see Liam’s take on this fascinating and nuanced man,” he said. Iron Man Star said in a statement at the time.
The reveal came shortly after news broke that Cavill would be returning to the DC Universe as Superman. However, two months later, the actor admitted that he would not be returning as the superhero after all, as new DC co-directors James Gunn and Peter Safran would be telling the story of a younger Clark Kent.
Cavill quickly switched gears and will star in and executive produce Amazon Studios’ series adaptation of Warhammer 40,000, the popular sci-fi fantasy miniature wargame, along with Vertigo Entertainment and GAW.
“Henry’s well-known love of Warhammer 40,000, and his passion as a world builder and storyteller, will serve us well for years to come,” said Andy Smillie, GAW Creative Director. “Finally, Warhammer will come to the screen as fans have expected and deserve. Exciting times!”
The first five episodes of The Wizard the third season will be released on Netflix on June 29 and the rest of the episodes will be released on July 27.
