It’s been a long time coming, but now we’ve finally got our first look at The Witcher with action star Henry Cavill taking on the cult role of intrepid monster slayer Geralt of Rivia.
Watch the all new trailer for The Witcher below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
Bound in plenty of dark fantasy, this new fantasy series should provide fantasy fans with plenty of magic, swordplay and sex to keep them entertained as Geralt of Rivia is faced with an impossible choice that goes against his mercenary ways.
In terms of performance Cavill has put everything of himself into this role, and he certainly cuts an impressive figure as Geralt. Absolutely jacked and ready for a fight at every turn, Cavill has been a long time fan of the Witcher franchise and he’s really committed to bringing this cult classic character to life.
Fans get a hell of a lot of footage here, and the trailer really offers up a lot for intrepid fantasy aficionados with all kinds of magic and monsters on display, along with Cavill’s dashing swordsmanship which pumps with plenty of grit here.
Get ready for a fantasy rush when The Witcher arrives on Netflix later this year.
