Seeing the successful premiere of House of the Dragon, HBO Max revealed the first look at a grown up Aegon Targaryen. The series starring Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen and Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen hit it off with a positive note after a very controversial end to its parent series Game Of Thrones.
However with the recent trailer hinting on Aegon Targaryen’s part in the show as well as the reveal of his first look, fans have responded their hearts out with what they feel towards the character and the impression he gives off.
House Of The Dragon: The Targaryen Civil War
A war amongst the House of Targaryen initiated by Aegon II during his succession, was a threat towards his half sister Rhaenyra for the throne of Viserys. Unfortunately for both of them, the rulers of both the war sides met with their ends; leading for Rhaenyra’s son Aegon III to take up the throne and title of King.
Fans Already Seeing Aegon As House Of The Dragon Villain
The aftermath of HBO Max revealing the character from George R. R. Martin’s work gave the fans, especially from twitter, to publish their views and concerns for the character. Most of them being rather similar to each other, it can be said that House Of The Dragon has been hitting one success to another after its fans reviewing the character just as he was meant to be perceived.
Aegon Targaryen would meet his demise and was not a very loved character to begin with in the books. Comparing those two, it can be said that the live action version of the character would make us fans exhibit the same set of emotions. Some even comparing him to Joffrey.
From referring to his face as “punch – able”; to feeling pure hatred towards him. After asking more fans about the same, they said about how, “I don’t like it how evil he looks. As if he is holding an evil grin and would laugh uncontrollably evil if and when given the chance.”
Aegon Targaryen Will Make An Impact
Seeing such a vivid and variant response to just a first look of a character, one can safely say that Aegon Targaryen II will certainly leave his mark. His already building fanbase, including those who say they already hate the character, have given him the spotlight well before his official introduction in the show itself.
His role in the show is already set to be a major one which would directly affect both the protagonists. So to say that he would just appear and fulfill his role would be an understatement.
