Netflix has unveiled a first look at Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher.

In the clip, he walks up to the camera and stares down the barrel of the lens before taking a swig from a vial.
The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family centring on Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
When destiny hurtles him towards a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile continent together.
His casting was announced in September.
