Netflix has released the first peek at Henry Cavill in the upcoming drama series The Witcher, and damn, he’s rocking the look.
It’s actually come in the form of an awkward video in which Cavill looks like he’s posing for an America’s Next Top Model shoot, and it would be unbearably awkward if he wasn’t so handsome.

The Witcher is based on the best-selling fantasy book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, and Cavill is kicking off the series as young Geralt of Rivia. People have been quick to point out that Cavill’s Geralt ~look~ is very reminiscent of a fair few other fantasy characters.
Good enough. pic.twitter.com/uhGWBoCpir

It’s like Orlando Bloom’s Lord Of The Rings character Legolas, Lucius Malfoy of Harry Potter and Aegon Targaryen of Game of Thrones, have been put in a blender and Henry Cavill’s Geralt is the delicious resulting smoothie. Yum!
The Witcher doesn’t have a release date yet but it’s expected to drop on Netflix some time next year so that’s plenty of time to read the book and get around the hype.
