We love a Legolas with a butt chin!

The Witcher is a highly anticipated project by Netflix that recently added Henry Cavill to their cast in the lead role of Geralt of Rivia. As with everything that has Henry attached to it, we all instantly became very interested in the story and what our beautiful Superman was going to look like in it.

Netflix decided that Halloween was a great time to break the internet and released the first look at Henry Cavill in The Witcher. They were correct! Of course, the Internet wasn’t about to let this graven image pass them by.

Twitter users took the photo release and ran to the nearest source of water as if they had been lost in the desert for days.


No but really, bathe him.

I, myself, didn’t realize that it was Cavill to begin with. I thought everyone was just having a Legolas moment.

We all began then asking the same question.

Obviously, people started to have fun with the image too.

More importantly, we got even more mustache memes for our Halloween delight!

The truth of the matter is that Henry Cavill can’t look bad. He had a mustache and was still the hottest man in town.

It is important to note though that not everyone feels the Cavill Thirst. But even those who are not parched can still can recognize his beauty.

The Witcher has no release date as of yet but that isn’t stopping us from talking about Henry looking like the elf king we all need in our lives. And please, for the love of all that is holy, make sure he is in the bathtub. Now all we want to see is Henry in a bathtub.
