Following the season’s end, the story will be picked up from Jacaerys Velaryon meeting Cregan Stark, the lord of Winterfell. As stated by George R.R. Martin and the showrunners, Winterfell and House Stark will play a vital role in the dance of the dragons. And fans are already casting Henry Cavill as Lord Cregan Stark before any announcements.

Although there have been no official announcements regarding the above matter, the role of Cregan Stark will indeed be suitable for Henry Cavill. There are also rumors of Clive Standen taking up the role in House of the Dragon. Clive Standen is best known for his role as Rollo (the brother of Ragnar) in Vikings (2013-2020).

With 4 to 5 seasons needed to tell the story of the Dance of the Dragons, there are a plethora of characters that can be adapted to the big screen. During an interview with Ryan Condal, he was asked what they would do after the dance of the dragons ended.

Ryan Condal replied that the show is about the “House” of the Dragon…not the Dance of the Dragons. Therefore, the show will continue to go on and may possibly feature Aerys “The Mad King” Targaryen and Jamie Lannister’s king slaying. This could potentially mean that we would get to see a young Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon riding out in battle as Robert’s Rebellion would also get adapted.

Although purely rumors at this stage, the number of spin-offs and histories of Westeros are plenty. Having confirmed no official news or announcements, one can only speculate a possible role that Henry Cavill might suit for and how the people would adore him.

House of the Dragon is available to stream on HBO Max.
