Did a double take when Cavil first spoke in that trailer, had to check if he was lip syncing Doug Cockle. Bang on.
Less close after that, but impressed. Definitely hits the right notes for me.
I'm still going to chuckle at the medallion but this all looks good.
I've had faith in Cavill from the start, but I still have concerns about the wokeness of the writing, people who write off people who disagree with them politically as Nazis and racists are not really fit to handle the grey areas of the Witcher material.
I'm still convinced it will be a steaming pile of shit, but the trailer is really good. At least it convinced me to give it a look.
As said before, Cavill has not the right physique for Geralt - but he's absolutely great in there. Really spot on. It shows that he's a fellow nerd. And a really good actor.
Still can't understand Nilfgard armors. Who thought they were a good idea?
The show is based on the books not the games. And the books do not revolve around Geralt 100% of the time. The story is told through a variety of perspectives. Yennifer, Triss, Ciri, Geralt, and a few other PoVs.
So it's not a "Bait and Switch". If it's true they are telling the story from several perspectives then that is just them following the source material in terms of how the story is told.
