Superman star Henry Cavill will play lead role in The Witcher Netflix TV show

Netflix's The Witcher television has its star.

Superman actor Henry Cavill will be playing the lead role of Geralt of Rivia in the eagerly anticipated television show. The Man of Steel star announced the news via Instagram (below) before the streaming service retweeted the news on Twitter.

The Witcher TV show is set to launch in 2020, having been announced back in 2017. It is based on the original novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, rather than the popular video game series from CD Projekt RED.
