Catering to his love for fantasy and adventure stories and novels, many suggested he should take a shot at HBO’s Game of Thrones series, which unfortunately did not seem to happen, even with the release of House of the Dragon. But with George R.R. Martin’s recent revelation of there being a third and fourth season in the works, fans still have hope to see the star somewhere in there.

The entire landscape of the silver screen was completely flipped when HBO decided to release  Game of Thrones with audiences going absolutely insane for the series. Today, that legacy is being continued by its prequel series House of the Dragon, made in collaboration with the original literary series author George R.R. Martin.


And it seems like WB and Martin have been brainstorming to better tell the story, as with the release of the teaser for the aforementioned series’ Season 2, we were also informed that there was more to come.

In a recent post on his blog site Not A Blog, the author revealed that he and the showrunners for the currently ongoing prequel series were hard at work for the last few days coming up with what more they can do to expand and elaborate on the tales that eventually led to the original Game of Thrones storyline. This led them to come up with the penning of Season 3 and 4 in the coming time. He said:


“It was not all tromping through sets, though. I also spent two days locked in a room with Ryan Condal and his writing staff (Sara Hess, Ti Mikkel, David Hancock, and Philippa Goslett) talking about the third and fourth seasons of HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. They were lively, fun discussions, and we got some good work done… though two days was not nearly enough. There is so much ground to cover that I am not sure twenty days would have been enough.”

This has led many to be hopeful for Henry Cavill, who loves fantasy novels and the genre of storytelling, who can be seen as part of the cast in the future. Considering his reputation as well as the demand for the franchise for talented stars, it’ll be a wonderful opportunity to witness the Man of Steel star in the series, especially as a Targaryen.
