After being in production for what feels like forever, Netflix's TV adaptation of The Witcher is finally gearing up to debut later this year. Starring Man of Steel's Henry Cavill, the live-action imagining of the book and video game series has been on the radar of every fan for quite a while, and now we've got an official look at what we can expect.

On Monday morning, Netflix unveiled the first poster for The Witcher, which puts Cavill front and center, taking on the ever-popular role of Geralt. There's not much else to it, but it's certainly more than enough to get everyone excited.

The poster was shared on Twitter with the simple message: "It begins."

Along with the poster, Netflix unveiled the first logline/synopsis for The Witcher, which you can read below.

Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
