Actor Henry Cavill on Monday unveiled his first look donning a brand new armour for season 2 of Netflix fantasy series The Witcher. Cavill shared the pictures as monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, alongside a quote from Andrezj Sapkowski, author of the original Witcher novels.
The caption read,”‘It may turn out,’ said the white-haired man a moment later, ‘That their comrades or cronies may ask what befell these evil men. Tell them the Wolf bit them. The White Wolf. And add that they should keep glancing over their shoulders. One day they’ll look back and see the Wolf.'”
