Say goodbye to Superman, and hello to Geralt of Rivia.
Netflix shared a first look at Henry Cavill in character for their upcoming series, “The Witcher,” which is beginning production in Hungary.
The picture (seen below) shows the “Batman v. Superman” star in costume as the iconic character, and was shared by the actor on his social media channels Wednesday.
Here’s the official logline for the series: Based on the best-selling fantasy series, “The Witcher” is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, 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.
The streamer announced a few more names rounding out “The Witcher” cast Wednesday, including Eamon Farren (“The ABC Murders,” “Twin Peaks”) as Cahir, Joey Batey (“Knightfall,” “Strike”) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (“House of Cards,” “Sherlock”) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (“Wanderlust,” “Judy”) as Istredd, Maciej Musiał (“1983”) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (“Jamillah & Aladdin,” “Dickensian”) as Dara, and Anna Shaffer (“Harry Potter”) as Triss.
Added to that list are: Rebecca Benson (Marilka), Shane Attwooll (Nohorn), Luke Neal (Vyr), Matthew Neal (Nimir), Tobi Bamtefa (Danek), Sonny Serkis (Martin), Roderick Hill (Fletcher), Inge Beckmann (Aridea), Charlotte O’Leary (Tiffania), Natasha Culzac (Toruviel), Amit Shah (Torque) and Tom Canton (Filavandrel).
That long lineup joins the previously announced “The Witcher” cast, which includes Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, along with Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia, Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read as Sabrina, and Millie Brady as Renfri.
