Gandalf would kick Dumbledore's ass in a fight, says George R. R. Martin

Game of Thrones is based on the fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, who often talks about how much of an influence Lord of the Rings creator J. R. R. Tolkien has been on his work. He recently even compared LOTR’s Gandalf to Harry Potter’s Dumbledore. Read on!

Gandalf and Dumbledore have often been compared in the past, with both of them having magical powers, and awesome beards, not to forget the fact that Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf, also had a chance to play Dumbledore, which he turned down. Recently, at the premiere of LOTR author’s biographical film, Tolkien, George was a guest, and he discussed Tolkien’s impact and influence on his own work.

He then said that Gandalf could “kick Dumbledore’s ass” in a fight. While this is debatable, given the two worlds have very different settings, but George has a great grasp over fantasy, and if he says this, then it must mean that he has thought it out.

What do you guys think? Could Gandalf beat Dumbledore? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
