Henry Cavill to play Geralt in Netflix Witcher series

It’s official! Henry Cavill has been cast in the lead role as Geralt of Rivia in the up coming Witcher Netflix series. So personally I thought it was crazy when Superman himself Henry Cavill said that he wanted to play Geralt last month. Honestly I wasn’t sure if that would be a good fit for him but it doesn’t matter what I think because the producers of the series seem to think it’s a great idea. As far as his look goes he just seems a bit too bulky to play Geralt. Sure Geralt is pretty cut in the games but he’s a bit more slim than Henry Cavill. Of course he could always lose a bit of his mass but still, there is just something about his face that doesn’t seem to quite match up. 

“The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”

Executive producers for the upcoming Witcher series Sean Daniel and Jason Brown had previously released the statement above giving fans some insight into the story that the Netflix series will tell. Of course only time will tell if this series can really capture the grit and charm that the Witcher games are known for. As always we want to know what you think of this Nerd Nation.
