Many people wondered where Geralt's silver sword was when picture of Cavill's character were revealed, and now we know.

Here's The Witcher's official synopsis:

Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Netflix is expected to unveil more details about The Witcher during Comic Con later this week. Hopefully, we'll get a look at the first footage along with a date for when the show will be available to stream.
