Check out the official Comic-Con trailer for "The Witcher," Netflix's new adult medieval fantasy-horror series, in which Henry Cavill stars as Geralt of Rivia, a traveling monster slayer for hire who teams up with a sorceress and a young princess as they embark on an epic quest to rid their kingdom of evil.
Based on the global best-selling fantasy novel series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which was also developed into a popular fantasy action role-playing video game, "The Witcher" was developed into a Netflix series by executive producer/writer/showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
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 Witcher stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Jodhi May, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, Anya Chalotra, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, Millie Brady
I am actually really really excited about this! I have played the games, but haven't finished the 3rd one yet and by the looks of it they got a lot of it down. I just wish they used one of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt songs for the trailer.
Yep, I liked GOT too, and if this show can use that same vibe it has a chance to be great. I agree about Cavil being jacked up for this project. Seems like a lot of Man of Steel muscle going to waste. Can you imagine if Reeves would have been so huge, the movie would have been even more epic, if that's possible.
This looks MUCH better than those original first images when it was first announced. As long as they keep true to the story, this will easily take the reigns that Game of Thrones left behind. And suddenly there will be a billion Witcher fans. Also his wig still looks weird and him being SO jacked is also weird as Geralt is pretty tame in his physique.. not massive like him but this looks pretty great overall. lots of potential.
