For the first time, fans were treated to the long, white-haired demon hunter complete with brown eyes. Cavill can be seen in a promotional teaser for the show emerging from the darkness in full costume. However, as some fans were quick to note, the character was missing his two longswords, but we can hardly fault him for that as the series is still in production.
As previously reported, Cavill, 35, will play the character in “The Witcher,” which is described by Netflix as “an epic tale of fate and family,” the franchise is based on a collection of short stories and novels written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The story was highly popularized by a series of video games in which people play as Geralt and slay a collection of unspeakably creepy monsters.
