“Really? This guy?” well that’s not us but the fandom saying as Corlys Velaryon’s spinoff series gets confirmed by George R. R. Martin. House of the Dragon stars Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon during the run of the series but he will have a spin-off confirmed by the creator of A Song of Ice and Fire.
In an unlikely change of plans, the fans want to know the story of Aegon the Conqueror and want the Man of Steel hero Henry Cavill to portray him.
Corlys Velaryon Gets A Spin-off During House of the Dragon
Steve Toussaint, the man known as Corlys Velaryon aka The Sea Snake on the sets of House of the Dragon, will be getting a spin-off. The news was seemingly confirmed by the true king of the seven kingdoms George R. R. Martin himself. The author stated that The Sea Snake spin-off is still in development.
The fans of the series, however, had not much of a kind reaction as many stated that the character is boring or banal. The fans even went as far as to request HBO to cast Henry Cavill as Aegon The Conqueror (Rider of Balerion) and have a spin-off on him rather than Steve Toussaint’s Corlys Velaryon.

As seen from the tweets, the audience isn’t much of a big fan of Corlys Velaryon. Although the character has found himself through troubles dark; Corlys Velaryon sailed to the darkest seas and became the richest man in all of Westeros. The spin-off would likely cover his story into power and his journey to YiTi and Asshai.
The Second Time House of the Dragon Found Controversy
This is not the first time that House of the Dragon has found itself in controversy for Corlys Velaryon. During the initial episodes of the series, the people were furious that Steve Toussaint, a person of color had portrayed Corlys Velaryon. Though described differently in the books, Steve Toussaint made everyone regret by his remarkable acting as The Sea Snake.
There has been no news confirmed regarding the status of the development of the spin-off of The Sea Snake. House of the Dragon recently found its end when the 10th and final episode of season 1 was released. The episode was also leaked before the official release which made HBO furious but what’s done was done.
House of the Dragon is available to stream on HBO Max.
