After what feels like an incredibly long wait, Netflix has finally released the first trailer for its live-action version of The Witcher, starring Superman's Henry Cavill as the White Wolf.

In this first look, we find out a bit about the lore within the universe of the Witcher, see some of the well-known characters from the series and witness an eight-legged monster surface from the depths of a swamp.

As previously explained, this series is based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's popular line of fantasy novels, rather than the video games - this includes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. The Netflix series is "coming soon" and will be comprised of eight one-hour long episodes.

To help promote the show, Netflix has opened up dedicated social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Take a look at the teaser trailer above and tell us what you think down below.
