Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer: Why were the Greyjoys missing

Game of Thrones dropped its much-awaited official trailer on Tuesday with a number of easter eggs, teasing a bloodier, and jaw-dropping Season 8. The trailer featured almost all main characters of the series along with the Golden Company who are new to the series. Then, while I was watching the trailer again, I noticed that we didn’t see the Greyjoys at all.

This is one of the many questions that come to the mind, especially when we saw Theon Greyjoy in the last season undergoing a redemption and setting out to save his sister in the last season. While we probably saw a glimpse of their usurper uncle Euron Greyjoy along with Harry Strickland – the leader of the Golden Company in the King’s Landing Courtroom, Theon and Yara completely went on missing from the trailer.

Yet, in our in-depth analysis we acknowledged two different set of Greyjoy fleets with different Kraken-painted sails. For this we’re are cent per cent sure that the three ships down below featured in the trailer are from the fleet of Yara Greyjoy and that we will surely see Theon trying to save Yara in the new season.

Recently enough, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) were also featured in the freshly released cover images from Season 8 by Entertainment Weekly. Yet, there wasn’t any sign of Yara Greyjoy. Does this mean…?

Before we dive deep into the speculation territory we get a new update from the actress who plays the role (Gemma Whelan) that she couldn’t appear in the photo-shoots as she was pre-occu11pied with her infant. She told this to a fan via Twitter who felt sad not seeing her in any of the promotional photos. She replied:

Gemma’s reply to a fan thus, confirms that she’s surely returning in the final season of Game of Thrones. And, we pray to the Drowned Gods that Theon, who is on an expedition to rescue his sister, reaches his destination – before it’s too late!

Game of Thrones Season 8 airs in less than 40 days on April 14 and we can’t stop thinking about it since the official trailer dropped. What about you? Tell us in the comments how excited do you feel?

Disney confirms and reveals Kit Harington's role for Marvel Cinematic Universe's The Eternals

Game of Thrones actors seem to be making the most of the popularity that the show brought to them. The latest actor to enter a giant franchise post-Thrones is Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow. Earlier, we reported that Kit was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now we not only have an official confirmation but more details about his role. Read on!

As you might know, Disney is currently holding the D23 Expo, which is a showcase for its projects, especially upcoming ones. Hidden among the plethora of projects announced, mostly for Disney+, was a small casting announcement that came from MCU chief Kevin Feige. He announced Kit Harington as a cast member for MCU’s The Eternals, and Kit will be playing the role of Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight!

The Eternals, set for release on November 6, 2020, was announced recently with a star-studded cast, which included none other than Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark on Thrones. Now Kit has joined the cast. Black Knight isn’t one of the Eternals but is a pretty important character in the comics, which means that we will see Kit’s brooding self in the MCU for a while. Looks like we might end up getting more Robb/Jon interaction through the MCU than we ever did on Game of Thrones.

What do you guys think? Excited to see the Stark brothers reunite in the MCU? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Kit Harington to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Game of Thrones starts seem to be finding themselves in all sorts new projects, but the latest rumor might be the grandest of them all. Kit Harington, who played the role of Jon Snow, is said to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, aka the MCU. Read on!

The news, while still technically a rumor as of now, comes from a report from Deadline. Apparently sources have confirmed that Kit Harington will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was not a part of the official announcement of the next phase of the MCU, which was revealed recently. However, with the D23 expo currently going on, a lot of new announcements are coming from Disney this week. While the report says no more details are known as of now, an official announcement might come from D23 before the end of the expo. Not to forget, Kit will be joining his ‘brother’ Richard Madden, who has been announced to be a part of MCU’s The Eternals.

Now, there is no shortage of projects in MCU to accommodate new actors, especially leads, with many of the former lead actors either moving on, or getting close to the end of their MCU stints. We could see Kit become one of the new faces of the MCU. However it’s also possible he plays one of the smaller characters or villains in one of the already announced films. For now, the fan favourite choice seems to be Adam Warlock, who was teased at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

What role would you want to see Kit play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Tell us in the comments, down below!
