New Budapest Photos, Shazam Ad Mentions Superman


You could say it's been a SUPER February!

After Henry's post showing his incredible transformation for The Witcher and his trainer's follow-up photos from Budapest, we now get the sweetest pics from a young fan (with an apparent alliance to Spider-Man).



Thank you for letting us share your super moment.

While Henry has been completely immersed in the world of The Witcher, his legacy as Supes follows him everywhere he goes. Lately there's been a lot of chatter (this is a good breakdown) about Superman potentially making a cameo in Shazam, and the latest ad only adds fuel to the speculation...



Shazam comes out April 5th, so not long now until we find out!

Keep checking back for the latest updates on everything Superman and The Witcher.

Henry's Reps Deny Rumors About Contract Demands

Warner Bros. // Justice League BTS

If you follow our posts here on the blog and on our social media, you know we usually stay away from leaks and rumors. So when one popped up that claimed Henry had a specific set of demands while negotiating with Warner Bros. over his future as Superman, we didn't plan on reporting it. That is, until Collider got a response from Henry's reps:

We reached out to Cavill’s team, and they vehemently denied this rumor as “patently inaccurate,” noting there is “no truth to this.” Cavill is not making any such demands contingent upon his return for a Man of Steel sequel.

You can read the full story at Collider.

Henry has been in Budapest filming the Netflix show since last fall, and now that he's revealed his new physique -- no doubt he'll be taking care of those monsters as fast as the director yells "rolling!"

The Witcher: Producer & Director Share Exciting Details



News on The Witcher has been hard to come by, since the fantasy series began filming in Budapest late last year. But every once in a while we hear from Geralt himself!

Henry was happy to hear that Lauren S. Hissrich was on her way back to Hungary to continue her work as the show's Executive Producer. He also responded to a fan asking where he's been, showing he's fully immersed in his character's world (see above).

Producer Tomasz Bagiński echoed that sentiment, when he addressed casting questions he gets about The Witcher:

"You'll see in your time, but one thing ... Anya is Yen and Henry is Geralt. I don't see them anymore."

Eska.pl also has a preview of Bagiński's interview with a Polish show where he mentions that Henry as the White Wolf is a great choice:

"He's a perfect fit for the role, and also knows this world well, this hero. We and the whole team are very excited about it."


Music to our ears!

The site goes on to say that Bagiński personally participated in the first series of photos in Hungary. Hopefully we get to see them soon.

More exciting news comes from director Alex Garcia Lopez, who will be directing some of the show's episodes. During a recent interview with Formula TV, he talked about the magnitude of the project (translation via juanche9 on Reddit where you can read the rest):

"Right now I am in pre-production at a very early stage. I'm finishing filming another series for Netflix, 'Sabrina', and we're at the beginning of the process. But the director who is starting to shoot the first two chapters of the series, Alik Sakharov, is a tremendous director, and has participated in incredible series such as 'Game of Thrones', 'Ozark', 'Counterpart' ... We have spoken and the vision and quality that we want for the series is top. We want it to be a pure cinematographic event. I have not played the game, but I would like to start seeing it and take inspiration, because you are not the first person to tell me that the third one is very good."

As you yourself said, when announcing a series of these characteristics it is inevitable to compare it with 'Game of Thrones'. But in this case I think it's an appropriate comparison in terms of the scale of the story and the number of characters. Will 'The Witcher' have the dimension of the HBO series in terms of ambition and production value?

"Totally. On issues of how the audience will accept the series and how they will see it, you never know until it is released. But in regards to quality and budget, Netflix is ​​giving this project a lot of punch, because they want to be the best and compete with HBO to be number one. And to do that today you have to do things well, sign checks, spend a lot of money and bring good talent. The fact of having Henry Cavill as the protagonist tells you everything about the potential and the desire that Netflix has for the series to be huge."

Today we also got a quick filming update from Beau DeMayo who is a writer on the series.



Finally, here are the latest posts from Henry's The Witcher costars...






A lot of exciting news, huh?

We'll keep updating you as more production details come in!
