The Witcher sees Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) cast as hero Geralt of Rivia. The white haired protagonist is a no-nonsense monsterslayer with special powers and strength to help him overcome anything in his way.
Expectations are high because the source material from both the books and video game is so rich. Expect epic battles in the manner of Game of Thrones and, if the game stuff gets a mention, some truly gut-wrenching storylines.
Although the initial images look good, we’re still a bit worried with how it will turn out. Video game to live action shows and movies tend to be awful, as productions try – and fail – to mimic the thrills of the game action.
But for the first episode at least we’ll try to maintain our optimism as a Witcher watcher.
