First proper glimpse of Henry Cavill in The Witcher revealed

Geralt balls of fire

First proper glimpse of Henry Cavill in The Witcher revealed

Netflix has finally revealed some official photos of Henry Cavill as Geralt and it looks like he's got right into the part.

When the first teaser image was revealed a few months back, there was some concern that Cavill was a little too baby faced to play Geralt, in Netflix's big-budget TV adaptation of the best-selling game.

These official images, though, prove that he's gotten a little more grizzled since the last time we saw him.

Initially shown off on Twitter, the image was of his back which was, er, fine.

But then more official shots appeared of his actual face and everything. The new images showcase the main cast, including Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan).
