Today, Netflix announced that Henry Cavill will star as Geralt of Rivia in their upcoming Witcher series. In August, Cavill had shown interest in playing the character during an interview with IGN. Cavill is a big gamer, So IGN asked what he had been playing recently, to which he responded “The Witcher 3. I just replayed all the way through, Love that game. Really good game.”
IGN then went on to ask Cavill if he would be interested in playing Geralt in a Witcher series. Of course, he responded “Absolutely. Yeah, that would be an amazing role.” Some think this is a wrong move and Cavill is not right for the role but after the amazing job he did in Mission Impossible: Fallout I have to disagree! Not only did he do an amazing job of acting in the film, his combat skills were fantastic!
I really feel that Cavill will do a great job as Geralt and I hope that fans will back this series and not start a #CavillGate campaign. There is not a release date for series, but as soon as we get word of its street date, but we would guess sometime in late 2019, early 2020!
