The Witcher Arrives on Netflix December 20th



You can't outrun destiny just because you're terrified of it. Henry Cavill is Geralt of Rivia.

The Witcher arrives December 20.

Cautiously optimistic. Not a fan of inserted diversity but I'm definitely going to give this a shot. Trailer looks legit.

I'm honestly surprised we haven't seen more fantasy series after the enormous success of Game of Thrones. There is so much out there to work with. How about an Elric mini-series? Or my personal favorite, a series based on the world in the Books of Swords by Fred Saberhagen?

Elric would be awesome. I only got 3-4 books into the Saberhagen stuff and got side tracked by Glen Cook and ... uh, who wrote The Merchant Prince (not going to google, just memory).

Amazon is doing Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time which is one of my all time favorites but ... casting indicates SJW poz ... I have the same stance on that; we'll see.

Also, in the cautiously optimistic frame of mind.

I just CAN'T. I look at this and all I can think is why is Superman dressed as the Witcher?!

Cavill was the best Superman actor ever. He should keep playing Superman. It's a crime that he won't be.

Powder mage would be pretty awesome to see as a series or movie!

He was begging for the role before casting started and is a huge fan of the books and games. There isnít a better prepared actor in the world.

Itís a shame he was a good Superman dropped in bad movies. Iím glad heís free of that mess and is doing what he loves. You donít see that often.

He was definitely the Best Superman IMO, too though I'll have a special place in my heart for Christopher Reeves. I don't think all the movies were bad though, I like MoS quite a bit despite the silverwash on each frame to dim the colors; that's just a Zach Snyder thing and unfortunately permeates most of the DCU movies. And Justice League was a good popcorn movie for me.

BvS had its issues and is definitely the weakest of the three for a variety of reasons.

Like I said above, I find myself looking forward to this series and will binge it asap!

Man is it lame that people still get killed in shows like this by a slash across the chest. If people were that easy to kill there wouldn't be any.

I think he fits the look of Superman, but the dark brooding Superman of the two Zack Snyder films just doesnít work. Superman should be the lighter, uplifting hero of the DC universe. The bright side to Batmanís dark side. And they never gave Cavill the chance to be that character. He needed some moments where he was bright, happy, perhaps even funny. And I think as an actor her certainly could do those moments. I hope they bring him back for another movie, but I donít think thatís happening.

After the success of Joker, you can bet that Zack Snyderís ďdarkĒ DC universe is going to be back in a big way. Donít be surprised if we even finally see the studio put money into the Snyder cut and release it into theaters.

DC has always been darker than Marvel. Every major Marvel hero is a happy go lucky jokester except maybe the Hulk. It's a good counterpoint of differentiation among the universes. And happy Superman is so 1940s and was done to death in the 80s movies. Superman should be a tortured character, an orphan with a lot of responsibilities. He should be allowed to get angry.
