Firstly, the art above is by Bosslogic and it is bloody superb, so go show some love.

Ok, so Witcher fans rejoice for their Geralt of Rivia has been found and, as the image above shows, it will be Man of Steel star Henry Cavill.

Cavill has made his love for the Witcher games and novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski pretty well known in the past and has been a big fan cast for a while, so this seems to be working out well for everyone, especially Netflix who are making the series.

The first season will be eight (presumably one hour) episodes and  executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich said of Cavill’s casting on Twitter: “He was my first meeting. I didn’t have writers or scripts yet – just a greenlight and a lot of passion. That was four months ago, and I’ve never forgotten the passion he brought. He IS Geralt. He always has been. I’m so thrilled to welcome HENRY CAVILL to the #Witcher family.”

That’s all we have for now, but it’s big news…

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
