'The Witcher' At Comic-Con: Teaser, Panel, Interviews, Pics


The Witcher cast took the stage for the first time together at  Comic-Con and they brought a first teaser with them and shared individual clips focused on Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer.

Henry, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan and Lauren S. Hissrich also revealed details about the series during their Hall H panel, but they did not officially announce the release date just yet.

They left the stage as fans cheered for them and Henry waved back.

'The Witcher' Showrunner Talks Casting Henry, Much More!

The Witcher showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has revealed some cool details about the series, during a new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

She talks about Henry's casting and how he's like in the role of Geralt of Rivia:

In the books, Geralt is largely silent, to an extent. He tends to take in what’s around him and process that internally. But you can’t have [a lead character] process everything internally in a television show. So in the first episode, I wrote Geralt with a lot of lines. Henry shot them all, and in the edit we started pulling some of them out. Henry brings subtitles to this character, finding emotional resonance in small moments, and playing it in such a subtle way that you understand what the character is going through without necessarily having huge chunks of dialogue. By the time we got to episode 108 — the finale of the first season — we didn’t even shoot half the dialogue because we knew there was so much Henry could do with Geralt that didn’t require my words.

Read the rest (and trust us, you want to) at Entertainment Weekly.

We should be learning a lot more about The Witcher at its Comic-Con panel tomorrow. Who knows, we may even get some footage!

It's set for 2:15pm - 3:00pm.

We are at Comic-Con to bring you updates on everything The Witcher and we'll also be talking to the cast, so make sure you're keeping up with us on our social media. 

Come back here later for a complete wrap.

UPDATE: New pic of Geralt via EW.


The Witcher: Preview Night At Comic-Con

We're at Comic-Con in San Diego to bring you everything The Witcher.

Preview night gave us a look at the two huge banners hanging inside the convention center.

As soon as the floor opened, we headed straight to the Netflix booth.... only to find out it's focused on The Dark Crystal, which is being released later this summer.

With no Witcher in sight, we walked over to the newly combined DC/Warner Bros. area to see what they had in store.

Supes was waiting in his new regal Chinese suit. The new toy figure is part of a collaboration between Pop Life Global, the China Imperial Palace and DC Comics.

"These figures pay homage to the ancient Chinese warriors and soldier armors inspired by the museum collections from the Imperial Palace archives. This highly collectible figurine collection of DC's most iconic superheroes includes Batman, Superman, Robin, Death Stroke, Wonder Woman, Night Wing, Joker, Harley Quinn, Green Lantern, Arrow, Flash, and Aquaman."

Metropolis was also there to represent Superman...

You know what t-shirt we got!

This Comic-Con exclusive variant looks a lot like a certain Superman we know...

So it was a fun first day at Comic-Con and we can't wait for The Witcher panel on Friday!

Keep up with us on our social media for more pics, videos and details from San Diego.
