We're not sure if Henry Cavill's time as "The Man of Steel" in the DC cinematic universe is over or not, but from what we can tell from newly-released images and series poster for Netflix's The Witcher. Created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski, the upcoming fantasy series features Cavill's Geralt wielding some serious steel of his own as he struggles to survive and find his place in a world where the monsters he hunts can be far less dangerous than the people around him. Expected to premiere in late 2019, here's a look at the official key art for The Witcher – as well as at Cavill's Geralt, Anya Cholatra's Yennefer, and Freya Allan's Ciri:
Based on the best-selling series of fantasy novels, The Witcher tells an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward Yennefer (Anya Cholatra), a powerful sorceress, and Ciri (Freya Allan), a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
Joining Cavill, Cholatra, and Allan are Jodhi May (Game of Thrones) as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) as Eist, Adam Levy (Knightfall) as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street) as Tissaia, Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read (Profile) as Sabrina, and Emma Appleton (The End of the F**king World) as Renfri.
In addition, The Witcher cast includes Eamon Farren (The ABC Murders) as Cahir, Joey Batey (Knightfall) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (Wanderlust) as Istredd, Maciej Musiał (1983) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte as Dara, and Anna Shaffer as Triss.
