The Witcher may be a fantasy series but it is not in competition with Game of Thrones.

This Netflix production that premiered on 20th December on Netflix stars Henry Cavill as a monster hunter named Geralt of Rivia. While the comparisons run wild amongst both series which honestly were inevitable. Cavill has stressed over the fact that regardless of being set in the same basic genre, The Witcher is a much different show.

The Justice League star spoke to Entertainment Tonight while promoting the show. “I think comparisons are always going to be made and it’s fun. It’s fine when they’re two ends of a spectrum in a fantasy genre. But that’s like saying someone’s going to be the next Tom Cruise. No one’s going to be the next Tom Cruise.”

Incidentally, Cavill recently shared screen space with Cruise in Mission- Impossible: Fallout. He played the role of a mustachioed August Walker. “Yes, I fought him [in the film], but even I, who fought him, isn’t going to be the next Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise and he exists as Tom Cruise. The Witcher is never going to be Game of Thrones. It’s going to be something else completely different. It exists within that fantasy genre, yes, but it must exist by itself. Otherwise, it’ll always be …a disappointment.”

He added. Based on the wildly popular series by author Andrzej Sapkowski, Cavill spoke about how The Witcher’s fanbase put him under more pressure than the idea of The Witcher becoming the next Game of Thrones. Especially him being a fan of the series himself.

“I’m one of his fans,” explained Cavill. “I am one of them, 100 percent rabidly enthusiastic about doing the right thing for the show. I’ve been a fan of the fantasy genre since I was a boy and a big fan of the games, a huge fan of the books as well. So for me, I am in the same boat. Like, no prisoners.”

The Witcher has been released at a time when production companies are looking for series to fill the void left by Game of Thrones after its conclusion in April this year. HBO is already gearing up for a Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon. The show is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. Amazon, too, is working on two ambitious adaptations of landmark fantasy works, Wheel of Time and Lord of the Rings.
