The Witcher Fan Art Shows Off Mads Mikkelsen As Geralt

The Witcher has become incredibly iconic, thanks to the immense popularity of the third game in its series - but frankly, many people can't see a Geralt of Rivia without imagining Henry Cavill.

It's perfectly reasonable, as his performance as Geralt in Netflix's The Witcher series is pretty defining for the character. But, that doesn't mean he can't be the only Witcher, as one artist has reimagined the character in the image of one Mads Mikkelsen.

What Does Mads Mikkelsen Look Like As The Witcher?

3D artist Wonki Cho has reimagined Geralt of Rivia in the image of Mads Mikkelsen, star of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and Another Round. He seems perfect for the role, looking battle-worn and windswept, in a true moody fashion.

Mikkelsen is a big name when it comes to The Witcher fancasting, as the actor has an inherent air of mystery and intrigue about him, and this art makes him look like he truly fits the part. The art is remarkable and more than makes Mads believable as Geralt.

This wouldn't have been the first time Mikkelsen leapt into video games, either - he's notably the big bad of Death Stranding, as the father of Sam Bridges' BB.

Fans Want Mads Mikkelsen To Play Geralt

This isn't the first time that fans have wanted to see Mads take up the mantle of the Witcher - in fact, fans have asked for this since before the Netflix series' casting announcements.

"If you guys remember, the fan movement/ call to cast Mads Mikkelsen as Geralt was pretty damned big, especially after Polar (2019) came out" reads a Reddit post in the netflixwitcher subreddit. "Looking back at the first season, do you guys see Mikkelsen being able to play that version of Geralt?"

Fans have come together to support the casting of Mads, with some suggesting he'd suit better as the character of Regis - but the sentiment is that Mikkelsen could easily have carried the show had he been cast instead of Cavill.

The art is a great fantasy of how Mads could fare in The Continent, and we reckon he could manage the role. After all, after that dance scene in Another Round, we'd trust the man with our lives.
