It is now official: Man of Steel and Mission Impossible: Fallout star Henry Cavill will be playing the role of Geralt of Rivia, the famed monster slayer in Netflix’s upcoming TV adaptation of The Witcher. The casting decision probably comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention to Cavill’s comments regarding the franchise – in an interview given to IGN, the English actor revealed that he was a big fan of both the original book series and The Witcher 3, and that he would be more than interested in playing the legendary White Wolf.

The Witcher TV series has no specific release date just yet, but is expected to launch on Netflix by 2020, according to showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich. It will consist of a total of eight episodes.

UPDATE: It looks like the series will debut sometime in 2019.
