Netflix provides a "first look" at Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia

Netflix has released what they call a "first look" at Henry Cavill's portrayal of Geralt of Rivia, the protagonist of their upcoming The Witcher TV series. 

Right not, The Witcher is set or release sometime in late 2019, already revealing detailed information about the case, filming locations and more. So far, not much is known about the series, though it is expected to be more like the books than CD Projekt Red's video game series. 

When looking at Netflix' interpretation of Geralt, we can see that Geralt's iconic beard from the Witcher 3 has been removed and that his scar is a lot less pronounced, moving away from his wildly popular video game counterpart. 

Followers of The Witcher book series will know that Geralt typically prefers to be clean shaven, with the series containing complaints about an itchy beard or other annoyances when Geralt spends too much time away from a razor. Regardless of Netflix' decision, they were either going to alienate The Witcher's book or video game fanbase with this aesthetic choice, though I must admit that Geralt looks strange without a beard.   



At this time it is far too early to pass judgement on Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher, as this teaser contains no dialogue or any information that is worth noting. It is too early to say whether or not Henry Cavill's portrayal of Geralt of Rivia will live up to expectations.

I don't like him all clean shaven and scarless. Gave him character. Although that's how he is in the books.Quote

Maybe the story starts at a time before he got the scar and the rugged look.
Or it could be just shortly after he finally and officially became a full-fledged Witcher.

Cuz if I remember correctly, he got that scar from a Griffin or a Cockatrice?Quote

He got it from a striga. But considering the series is based off the book he has no scar in the book. It's from the first game I believe. Don't remember atm.

In the books Geralt constantly complains when he's not clean shaven. He hates facial hair. So it makes sense. But the actor is just horrible for this role and looks nothing like a rugged old Witcher. He looks super young. Fresh out of Khaer Mohen.Quote
