My first thought watching this new preview of Henry Cavill's The Witcher series for Netflix... well the first one after I scoured it for shirtless shots of course... is that ol' sexist chestnut that girls get tossed at them all the time -- he needs to smile more. In all seriousness though this character looks like he's got the same Manly Grimace going in every single shot.
And it's the same Manly Grimace that Henry's Superman wore too. And like with Zack Snyder's deservedly maligned films this look just gets cartoonish at a certain point -- it's way too Try Hard. We know you have a nice smile to go along with those nice pecs, Henry. Use it. That said this thing is giving me a real Xena & Gabrielle feel with Henry's "camaraderie" with that traveling twink of his...
... so maybe the show will have its weird pleasures,
testosterone grimaces aside. We'll see when it drops on Netflix
this very Friday! Here's the new footage:
