Geralt is the titular character, a solitary monster hunter with supernatural abilities, who is thrown into the path of a powerful sorceress, Yennefer of Vengerberg, and a mysterious young princess called Ciri. Now today, Netflix has given us our first look at Henry Cavill as Geralt, albeit without any scars or a beard.

In a short, 20-second costume test clip, we can see Henry Cavill sporting Geralt's long white hair, in full Witcher gear.

The Witcher is expected to debut on the streaming service in 2019.

If you ask us, Cavill looks more like a character from "Game of Thrones" - the Queen of Dragons' brother, Viserys Targaryen - than Geralt. When destiny intervenes, he finds himself in the path of a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a risky secret. While you're waiting on those to roll in: what do you think of Geralt's look?

Netflix also announced the casting for a number of The Witcher's key characters. Since then, seven more books were published, which in turn inspired graphic novels, board games and the critically acclaimed "The Witcher" video game series by CD Projekt Red.

Eamon Farren will play Cahir, Joey Batey will be Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen will be Stregobor, Royce Pierreson will Istredd, Maciej Musial will be Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte will be Dara.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel's Daredevil, The Umbrella Academy) serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the series, which was announced a year ago.
