The most unequivocally scary moment of Peter Jackson‘s King Kong the remake does not come through a gigantic battle between Kong and a V-Rex, or even a close-up of Jack Black– it’s the insect pit. You may remember it: the part where the film’s heroes are dipped into a hollow cavity filled with giant eerie crawls trying to eat in various ways Adrien Brody‘s face and, successfully, swallow Andy Serkis alive. Either way, giant insects really get under the skin. And now Henry Cavill‘s Geralt of Rivia, the hero of The Witcher, must face its own monstrous insect: a giant millipede or “Myriapod”, as it is apparently better known.
A 19-second teaser, posted by the official Twitter handle for The Witcher, shows Geralt in battle with the beast, where he strikes it back with a slash from his glowing sword. The thing – which, incidentally, has claws the size of an adult human man, it seems – turns out to be too much of a match for him and causes him to fly into a protruding boulder. Ouch. The clip also gives us our first look at Geralt throwing the Quen character, a bit of protective magic used by Witchers, which forms a protective bubble around the caster. It looks like he’ll have to use it a few more times.
Cavill reportedly spent a lot of time playing The Witcher play on the most difficult level of difficulty during the lockdown, and one has to wonder if he now wishes he had used it to practice his anti-bug combat strategies. We would suggest a great insect spray – is there a magic to it? As he told Total Film earlier this month, “I decided to put [the game] at the hardest possible to play, which I have done before and it was really quite stressful! I completely forgot how stressful it was. “Just as stressful as – let’s repeat this for dramatic emphasis – fighting a giant millipedes, Henry?
Netflix provides the official synopsis for season 2 of The Witcher as follows:
Convinced that Yennefer’s life was lost in the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home Kaer Morhen.
