The Witcher Henry Cavill Superman

Superman actor Henry Cavill has given us our first official look at Roach in Netflix’s The Witcher.

Henry Cavill might be in limbo as Superman, but that isn’t slowing him down one bit. San Diego Comic-Con is quickly ramping up and Henry Cavill is using that momentum to his advantage. The Superman actor took to Instagram today and revealed a first look at Geralt’s trusty steed Roach in Netflix’s live-action The Witcher series. You can check out the image posted below.

Despite his popularity, the future of Henry Cavill’s Superman remains in question. Warner Bros. is reportedly putting the character on hold for a while to focus on Supergirl in the DCEU instead. Meanwhile, Henry Cavill is trading in his Superman suit to star as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher. 

Based on the fantasy series of novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher will follow Henry Cavill as the monster slayer for hire named Geralt of Rivia. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich will also serve as an executive producer on the series while Alik Sakharov, Alex Garcia Lopez, and Charlotte Brändström are on board as directors for the eight-episode first season.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. 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.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.

The Witcher will be available on Netflix in late 2019.
