‘The Witcher’ Fan Favorite Geralt Has Suffered a Traumatic World Cup Loss to Liam Hemsworth

We’re not even out of the group stage but, however Qatar 2022 has already cemented itself as a World Cup to recollect; Saudi Arabia’s win over Argentina prompted the declaration of a nationwide vacation from King Salman, Canada managed to attain their first World Cup purpose within the nation’s historical past, and Qatar grew to become the primary host nation to lose their opening match within the historical past of the match.

And, in fact, it wouldn’t be the World Cup and not using a wholesome dose of upsets, with Japan edging out Germany and match heavyweight Belgium having struggled in opposition to Canada earlier than dropping to Morocco, however one upset, particularly, has precipitated a stir within the realm of The Witcher.

Certainly, after Denmark’s 1-0 loss to a weaker-on-paper Australian facet, photographs of Mads Mikkelsen — a homegrown Dane and as soon as a hopeful fancast for the position of Geralt following Henry Cavill‘s departure from The Witcher — sporting an extremely related caption have began resurfacing on-line.

It’s the newest prank from the cosmic presence of irony, as Liam Hemsworth, the person who finally succeeded Cavill for Geralt’s mantle, is Australian, which maybe pours salt-infused Vegemite on this explicit wound.

They are saying that life imitates artwork, and that artwork imitates life. Now, it seems to be like sports activities has a declare to imitating each, so The Witcher can maintain its head excessive, being the primary bearer of the life-imitates-art-imitates-sports nuance. A distinction that, regardless of the way you swing it, ends poorly for Mikkelsen.
