Justice League star Henry Cavill has shared a new photo on his official Instagram account, in which he jokes about a modern version of Roach before he begins work on Netflix’s The Witcher.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Henry Cavill would portray lead character Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher. Now, Henry Cavill shared a new photo of himself as he prepares to take his motorcycle out for a final ride before he begins work on the television series.
Fans of the source material know that Geralt of Rivia names all of his horses Roach and in the accompanying caption, Cavill joked that a modern version of the faithful steed would probably be a motorcycle:
“If Roach were a motorbike I reckon she’d probably look a little like this. So, I figured I’d take the mechanical Roach out for one last ride before meeting the real Roach soon.”
