Highlights from the SDCC 2022’s House of The Dragon panel




Every fandom looks forward to attending the San Diego Comic-Con every year, and it was held for the first time since 2019 this year, thanks to the Covid pandemic. One of the most talked about features of SDCC 2022 was the exclusive House of The Dragon panel that answered a lot of questions fans have had for a long time about the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel. Here’s a very short summary and important takeaways from the Q&A:

HOUSE OF THE DRAGON | Comic Con 2022 Full Panel (Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy, Eve Best)

2. Martin addresses why the patriarchy in Westeros is so anti-women, referencing real-life history.

3. Martin met the cast of House of The Dragon for the first time at the SDCC 2022 panel.
