Netflix The Witcher Series

While the only depiction we’ve seen of the Geralt’s character is through the eyes of CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher games, it seems Netflix has decided to go a little more Legolas with their vision. While this might not be the final look for Geralt, it gives more of an idea of how Cavill will look in this role.
