Netflix Offer Mark Hamill Role Of Vesemir In The Witcher Series

According to We Got This Covered, Netflix have offered the role of Vesemir to Mark Hamill for The Witcher series. An apparently reliable source gave the site an official production document for the Netflix series, which revealed the possible casting call.


Mark Hamill has become the number one choice for fans. The Internet has been pushing for this casting since season one ended, and it seems they just might get their wish. Mark Hamill himself has even got in on the action. The source provided them with accurate information in the past, so there's a very good chance this is true. Wether or not he will actually accept the role of Vesemir, remains to be seen. Alas, we can only hope.

Video Game Treasure Trove

Netflix seems to be looking to video game properties for the future of their content. It was announced back in January that The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf would be coming to the streaming service. For those unaware, this is an animated film that focuses on Geralt's mentor, Vesemir himself. The official synopsis reads:

Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a Witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.

Studio Mir, best known for Legend of Korra, will be responsible for the animation. Lauren S. Hissrich and Beau DeMayo, two of the people responsible for the creation of The Witcher Netflix series will also be creating the animated feature.

Elsewhere, the synopsis regarding the Netflix Resident Evil series was posted and then subsequently removed. Can we expect Netflix to translate more video game properties for the small screen in the future?

We already have a Ni No Kuni animated film available on the streaming service, not to mention The Witcher series was quite the success for the streaming giant. Success that has also proven massively beneficial for the game itself, as it saw a dramatic increase in players.

Perhaps this is the beginning of a mutually beneficially relationship between streaming services and video game properties.

Lists — we're doing one today. And it has the potential to be a really fun one! The challenge is fairly simple: Make a list of all of the MMOs that you played for any good length of time (i.e., not ones you tried for about six seconds before your morning coffee that one time). […]

Betawatch: Elyon and Diablo II Resurrected kick off beta events

More closed beta for Elyon? It's more likely than you think. It's actually certain, in fact.

PWE's Remnant: From the Ashes turns two with a new trailer and sale

PWE's co-op shooter Remnant: From the Ashes hasn't gotten much press lately, in spite of being just two years old, but that's to be expected as the game got its last real DLC back in 2020, and a few other things happened that year that might have stolen your attention. In any case, it's back […]

Hi-Rez's Paladins is adding a new trickshot champion and 'urban' map rework

Hi-Rez's shooter Paladins is getting playtime in my house again thanks to the dumpster fire still raging over at Blizzard that's made Overwatch persona non grata, so the preview of a new champion has a sliver of my attention. Her name's Saati, and she's a bounty hunter with some gunslinger and drow vibes. "No expense […]

The latest update to survival sandbox Conan Exiles on PC doesn't really come with any expansion-level updates or content additions, but what it does feature is a lot of little additions and quality-of-life improvements that are still likely very welcome to players. One of the top features of this new patch is the introduction of […]

Project X is a mobile 'social sandbox MMO' full of resource gathering and house building in closed beta

This one will need a little bit of context because the name Project X carries a tiny bit of history here. Back in 2018 we got a look at a tactical shooter MMO called Project X, which was being built for SpatialOS and developed by UK studio Automaton Games; the shooter later changed its name […]

Global Chat: Hitting that endgame wall in MMOs

MMO blogger Digital Visceral recently wrote about a situation that many of us encounter in our games: Hitting that max level and feeling at a loss as to where to go from there. In this case, it was maxing out in Fallout 76. "In Fallout 76, 50 is the last meaningful character level threshold. Crossing 50 […]

Roblox's shameless exploitation of child labor is why we can't have nice things

I didn't think I'd be back so soon writing "Roblox" and "this is why we can't have nice things" in the same post two days in a row, but here we are. People Make Games has put out a video confirming everything you already suspected about the game: that it's overvalued and grotesquely exploitative. Quintin […]

Perfect Ten: My top 10 MMO pet peeves

In general, I try to be an optimistic fellow. When it comes to MMO gaming — you know, that hobby we apparently love and enjoy — I'd rather look on the bright side than the angry, cynical, disgruntled dark side most days of the week. There needs to be balance between such outlooks to be […]

Just last week we first reported on CODEX, a project that licensed Legends of Aria's Shards Engine for the purpose of creating an MMO.

World of Warcraft reverses course on player customization and promises more

Back in February, Blizzard reversed its stance on player customization options for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

Apparently, some combination of recent […]

The Daily Grind: What do you think about taxes in MMORPGs?

Today I want to talk about everyone's least favorite thing: taxes. I snagged the idea from a Reddit thread a while back that was complaining about the tax system in Albion Online. The way it works is that guilds with built-up islands and territories and players who rent and outfit crafting stations in base-game cities […]

Starbase plans to amend its stance on stream sniping citing language that is 'too encouraging'

We're not sure exactly what Starbase developer Frozenbyte thought would happen when the game's griefing policies outright read "stream sniping is allowed," but apparently there's been enough of a whirlwind reaping that the devs have acknowledged on Twitter the policy was "currently too encouraging" to the behavior, leading to an incoming amendment to the policy. […]
