Fans think Henry Cavill looked 'uncomfortable' during an interview ahead of announcing he was quitting The Witcher.
See what you think in the clip below:
However, after the upcoming third season he's set to be replaced by Liam Hemsworth.
For those of you who aren't quite as au fait with The Witcher saga, it's a live action series based on the novel and video game of the same name.
The official synopsis reads: "Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher. is an epic tale of fate and family.
"The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified."
While it's proven to be a smash hit among those who know and love the story, Cavill dropped the bombshell that he was calling it a day.
And fans believe the decision was playing on the actor's mind in the days leading up to the announcement.
Cavill, who is set to reprise his role as Superman, was a guest on the Happy Sad Confused podcast and was asked about his approach to acting projects.
He said: "It’s just about belief. If you believe what you’re doing is the right thing then you’ll be able to keep on doing it.
"It’s also important to know that if you realise you’re doing the wrong thing, that’s when you stop doing the wrong thing.
"You don’t just keep going just because, because that leads down a dark path."
Following his announcement, fans say they believe he looked 'uncomfortable' giving his answer and that it seems as though he may have been thinking about his situation on The Witcher at the time.
One person said: "You can tell something happened behind the scenes with The Witcher."
Another commented: "He clearly isn't comfortable lying on camera. He could have said nothing but he had to tell the truth."
"Huge respect for him for believing in the origin of The Witcher," put a third. "And not just be standing and looking at them going completely away from the origin."
While someone else chimed in: "They failed him. He gave everything there."
Rumours have been doing the rounds that Cavill fell out with the show's writers over the direction in which they wanted to take the series, with him wanting to stay true to the books.
He'd previously said: "I’m a huge fan of the books and staying loyal to them, and it’s about making sure that story happens without too much in the way of diversions or side things going on to muddy the waters."
Former series writer Beau DeMayo also claimed some of the writers did not even like the source material. As reported by The Direct, he said during an Instagram Q&A: “I've been on show - namely Witcher - where some of the writers were not or actively disliked the books and games (even actively mocking the source material)."
However, despite the rumours, there has been no confirmation of any spat between Cavill and writers.
