It didn’t take long for the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon to earn recognition and critical acclamation. And shortly after that, even before the first season of the show had come to an end, season 2 of House of the Dragon got officially renewed, thereby leaving fans in a frenzy of excitement.

Given the success and popularity of the show, HBO had been planning on a couple more Game of Thrones spin-offs, and the audience had obviously been pleased with that news. However, recently, certain rumors surfaced on social media, claiming that the spin-offs had been canceled.

But contrary to those rumors, the Sea Snake spin-off series is still very much in the works, and the same has reportedly now been confirmed by George R.R. Martin himself, the author of GOT and one of the screenwriters of House of the Dragon.

And with these new claims about the spin-off in development, House of the Dragon fans have raised their demands about wanting to see the series revolve around Aegon the Conqueror with Henry Cavill picked as the lead cast.

Now that Martin has given the green signal with regard to yet another GOT spin-off series, fans have chimed in with innumerable suggestions and opinions, and the one that has been standing out the most is the desire to see the Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill play the role of King Visery’s first-born son.

Aegon Targaryen, more popularly known as Aegon the Conqueror, is a highly powerful Targaryen king and is known for building the Iron Throne and vanquishing six out of the Seven Kingdoms.

The American novelist’s recent claims about the Sea Snake spin-off series moving forward sent fans in a spiral as they went over Twitter to voice out their wishes about wanting to see Cavill fulfill the role of Aegon the Conqueror.

People have even come up with various fan-art ideas with regard to the possibility of Cavill taking over as the Aegon the Conqueror. Clearly, GOT fans don’t come unprepared.

While the majority of the audience is convinced they want to see Cavill fill in the shoes of Aegon the Conqueror, some are even inclined toward the British actor playing the role of Lord Cregan Stark, the Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North.

This isn’t the first time The Witcher star is being urged and called out by fans to become a part of the famous HBO series. Just a while ago, rumors had it that Cavill was already set to play in the second season of House of the Dragon, along with the WandaVision actress, Elizabeth Olsen. However, these rumors had been debunked later.

And with Cavill officially returning as Superman to the DCEU along with a Man of Steel 2 rumored to be in the works, it doesn’t seem likely for the Enola Holmes star to be a part of House of the Dragon. But who knows, he might just end up surprising fans by announcing he has decided to listen to them. Never say never!
