Though I’m slightly familiar with the collectibles line from Dark Horse that features “The Witcher”, I’m not too up to date with the property itself. The statues and other assorted coolness have piqued my interest enough to be on point with the upcoming series on Netflix and we can all watch the first teaser trailer down below.

The Premise: “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.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I admit that this looks to be good watching stuff for fans of the mythological, there is a part of me that wishes we were just getting some new Superman stuff starring Cavill, but outside of a couple of announced films, it seems that Warner Brothers Pictures doesn’t really care about building a better DC Extended Universe. Oh well. One would have thought that the ass-whooping that “Avengers: Endgame” was in the box office might have forced their hand to finally take this stuff seriously. Hopefully I will find some time to read one or two of the books featuring “The Witcher” since the property does sound interesting and I have always enjoyed the “Lord Of The Rings” sort of Sword and Sorcery stuff. What did you readers think about this? Will you be binge watching? Chime in down below.
