The worst monsters are the ones we create…
Actor Henry Cavill and Netflix have released a new poster alongside several images teasing the upcoming Netflix series based on The Witcher, in which Cavill will be playing the lead role in Geralt. This is the first official look we’ve had at these characters since the test footage back in November.
The poster shows Geralt from the back and showcases the tag line, “The worst monsters are the ones we create”, whilst the teaser images include a further look into Cavill in costume as Geralt and some other characters that will appear such as Yennefer and Cirilla.
Witcher fans have their fingers crossed that this will be an adaptation worthy of the books and game trilogy. The show itself will adapt the books by Andrzej Sapkowski, which also acts as a prequel to the game series, and will hopefully capture what made the franchise so great to fans of the books.
Along with Cavill, Freya Allan will portray Ciri, Anna Shaffer as Triss Merrigold and Anya Chalotra as the sorceress and Geralt’s main love interest, Yennefer. Additional cast includes Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia and more.
