Henry Cavill’s upcoming Netflix series The Witcher may have recruited Daredevil director Marc Jobst for the season finale.

Game of Thrones is coming to an end this summer, but another huge fantasy series is coming from Netflix very soon. The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill in the lead role, will bring to life the book series that inspired the hit video game franchise. If a new report is true, then a Netflix veteran has joined Henry Cavill’s The Witcher.

According to a new report from Redanian IntelligenceDaredevil and The Punisher directer Marc Jobst has joined the crew of Netflix’s upcoming fantasy series. Aside from their sources, Evidence from the Daredevil director’s social media hints that he could be helming the series finale, according to Redanian Intelligence. Marc Jobst has also worked on Marvel series aside from Daredevil and The Punisher, including Luke Cage and Runaways.

Unfortunately, both The Punisher and Daredevil were among the Marvel Netflix series that were cancelled earlier this year. Although Daredevil has come to an end, it seems that Marc Jobst may have found a new home with Henry Cavill’s The Witcher.

Henry Cavill is set to play the lead role of Geralt in Netflix’s The Witcher. The iconic character originated in Andrzej Sapkowski’s famous book series of the same name, which spans across eight novels.

Henry Cavill’s upcoming Netflix series will not only be following in the steps of the famous book series but a famous trilogy of video games as well. Fans have wondered for months what this new series means for Henry Cavill’s future as Superman, a future which remains uncertain. The last appearance by Henry Cavill’s Superman on the big screen was in 2017’s Justice League and no return has been officially announced since.

Marc Jobst has yet to confirm that he’ll have any part in Henry Cavill’s The Witcher.  We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Henry Cavill’s highly-anticipated Netflix series as soon as more information becomes available.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
