Game of Thrones concluded months ago, and since then there has been an epic fantasy void in many fans' hearts that Netflix intends to fill.
Henry Cavill, whom most know as DC's Superman in Man of Steel, stars as the silver-haired lead, Geralt, in the upcoming series called The Witcher. The show is based on a Polish book series and worldwide video game franchise of the same name.
The streaming service released its first look at the movie's leads including Cavill, Anya Chalotra from the 2018 Netflix series Wanderlust, and newcomer 17-year-old Freya Allan. Fans can expect more information, or possibly even a trailer, to debut at the 2019 San Diego Comic Con on July 19.
Geralt of Rivia is a typical medieval hero, and Cavill is the perfect person to play the role.
The series writer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich calls the lead, in a tweet, "stoic, circumspect, balanced and fierce." Those are qualities befitting a medieval hero, and something Cavill has proven he is capable of in his role as Superman.
The writer also recognized that the first look shows Geralt holding only one sword and hinted that there was more to come. Fans will have to get by with these images until July 19 at the San Diego Comic Con, when more information about the upcoming series is likely to be released.
