First look at Henry Cavill as Geralt in Netflix’s The Witcher

The Witcher adaptation is well underway at Netflix, following the casting of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia – and the streaming service has given us our first look at the lead!

The footage released is of a costume and makeup test with Cavill in character, featuring the Geralt’s trademark long white hair, dark tunic and belt, as well as the yellow eyes. Cavill slowly walks towards the camera, smiles and drinks from a vial. There does seem to be a couple of things missing though – the beard and scar!

Check out the video below.
