The reaction was… well, let’s say not the best. One response says that even a cosplayer looks better than Cavill, who should get more make-up. There’s also an image:
Kelsey Impicciche thinks „Henry Cavill as Geralt for The Witcher looks like a very strange Legolas cosplay,” and Lord of the Rings doesn’t look far off indeed. From this point, more insane thoughts surfaced. Bob Al-Green’s tweet speaks for itself:

And here’s another reasonable thought – Cavill looks more like Raiden from the Mortal Kombat movie (who was played by Christopher Lambert):

…and many other people think likewise! Julie Alexis believes Geralt reminds her of Bob from Twin Peaks, and she doesn’t seem far off either:

So, The Witcher, whose first season will consist of eight episodes, might have a bad start. Its release date is unknown, but it might be out around the end of 2019. Also, another Netflix series, namely Castlevania, according to Deadline, is getting a third season, and this information comes just after the release of the second one. We don’t know when it could arrive.
What do you think about Cavill’s looks as Geralt?
