With the humongous success of the premiere, looks like the House of the Dragon has a brighter future ahead of it. And Henry Cavill, Elizabeth Olsen may be jumping in on the action. With the reports of further seasons already there, some talks suggested that it is going to be developed into an anthology series. As the fans were completely charged for it, they should know that this only marked a series of rumors. Now some more reports suggest that the show might bring names such as Elizabeth Olsen and Henry Cavill on board.
While the Scarlet Witch fame was already rumored to join the cast of the second season, it didn’t take much time for our beloved Superman to join the bandwagon of rumors as well.
Henry Cavill is likely to play Aegon the Conqueror
Henry Cavill is a trending name in Hollywood in recent times. With the confusion of his return as Superman to rumors of his casting in the MCU, the actor is all over the news. He will also reportedly join the cast of season 2 as Aegon the Conqueror.
Aegon I Targaryen or most popularly Aegon the Conqueror is one of the prime characters in George R.R. Martin’s works. He is the founder of the Targaryen Dynasty of Westeros. His list of achievements doesn’t end here as he was also the first Lord of the Seven Kingdoms.
It is leaked through some strong sources that Cavill may enter the next season of HBO’s Fantasy Land. By the valours of the character, it can’t be denied that Henry Cavill can be a wise choice for this role. Still, it sounds a bit quite debatable as the actor still has his own fantasy Witcher series to work on before picking another.
How will this tale fit into the House of the Dragon narrative?
It is reported that the House of the Dragon might not be a series following a uniform narrative like its predecessor Game of Thrones. The story follows the Civil War that played an important role in the Targaryen dynasty. But that doesn’t mean the history ends there as there are other portions of Targaryen epics too that need to be explored.
Some time ago during an interview, the co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik revealed their intentions of developing this series on the lines of an anthology. By this, they can actively dwell into more history on the family of Daenerys Targaryen:
“Absolutely. I think that’s one of the interesting things about the Targaryens,” he said. “We’ve chosen a story that’s almost like Star Wars: Episode IV. It’s the New Nope. We can go backwards, we can go forwards. There’s a lot of opportunities there. I hope we’ve been given the opportunity to set up something.”
It can be just requested to the makers to not do something that can bring back the GoT season 8 nightmares.
The Role of Elizabeth Olsen in House of the Dragon Season 2
Elizabeth Olsen is currently one of the most popular names in the world of pop culture. She never fails to impress the audience with her acting skills as well as her charismatic aura. Even her last appearance in Marvel’s Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness gained more popularity to her rather than the main character of the movie (no hate for Doctor Strange). After all this, it can be said that HBO might be eyeing her to add something more in the second season of the series.
Reportedly Olsen can be chosen to play young Melisandre or more popularly known as Red Witch still we can’t assure anything until official confirmation. Interestingly, Olsen also auditioned for the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones but lost it to Emilia Clarke so who knows, this can be the dream coming true moment for the actress.
