Netflix has released some more images of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, the protagonist at the heart of the streaming service’s upcoming series The Witcher.
The Witcher originated as a series of novels and short stories penned by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, in which “witchers” were monster hunters in a world filled with beasts. Sapkowski’s ideas have been adapted into numerous other guises over the years, including a much-loved trilogy of The Witcher games.
Henry Cavill, who’s an avid gamer when he’s not playing Superman in the DCEU or fighting Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, lobbied for the role of Geralt before being cast in the show.
Every look at Cavill as Geralt comes highly anticipated, then, not just because its a megastar star playing a famous role but also because we know this megastar really wanted this famous role.
Without further ado, here are the new images from the show, which include Cavill and some other cast members…
