These novels would be adapted in the video game landscape as the critically acclaimed Witcher series. While details are brief, many people are questioning who will play Geralt of Rivia. Now we have that answer: Henry Cavill will portray Geralt in the Netflix series.
Henry Cavill is set to play the white wolf but a release date has not been confirmed yet. Most will recognize Mr. Cavill from his role as Superman/Clark Kent in the D.C. Movie Universe. He also starred in the recently released Mission Impossible: Fallout. The man himself is actually a fan of both video game series and the popular novels. In a recent interview with IGN, Henry Cavill actually expressed interest of playing Geralt in the newly announced Netflix series. In talking about the novels, he says:
“The books are amazing… I started reading, and they are well worth a read.”
Mr. Cavill himself announced the news by going to Instagram. He announced the news by posting a picture of his new Netflix account. Again, there’s no new information about the series. When the series premieres and who else might star in the series has yet to be confirmed. All we do know is Henry Cavill will be portraying Geralt of Rivia.
