Netflix has revealed a first look at Henry Cavill in 'The Witcher' as well as some casting news for the series.
'The Witcher' is adapted from a fantasy series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The books have previously provided the source material for a film, television series and highly popular video game series.
Netflix has described their series as "an epic tale of fate and family."
The official logline reads:
"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."
Cavill has taken the lead role of Geralt in the series.
The 'Batman v Superman' and 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' star shared a preview from the series on Instagram. It was also shared on Netflix's social channels.
