I personally think it's a (casting) mistake for Cavill to be Geralt. (..not unlike Cumberbatch as Strange.)
In both cases the actors just don't portray "brooding" and "dark" enough for their respective rolls (..assuming the character is portrayed as originally, which Strange fell short of).
..and yeah, Cavill is to pretty.
On the other hand Cavill does do cynical well, so that's something in his favor.
My pick would have been:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2090702/?re ... _fc_cl_t23
(..not only does he look more like the game version, his portrayal as Roan in the series the 100 was just shy of the cynical snarky remarks you'd expect of Geralt - but lethal and brooding he had down pat for that role.)
