They say destinies are beyond our control. Well, if you will read our latest story you will know why. Zack Snyder’s film Watchmen hit the theatres in 2009 and years later we have found a Game of Thrones connection to that film. Confused? Well, don’t be. Read on to find out more!

As per Winter is coming, long before Patrick Wilson donned the hat of Nite Owl in Snyder’s film, Iain Glen a.k.a. Ser Jorah Mormont was supposed to. Unfortunately for him and for a lot of his fans, the film was shelved and never saw the light of the day.

However, now we have struck gold and found the test footage of the 2003 film. That film was going to be made by David Hayter and somehow that footage has now landed on the internet.

How about that? Did you like the suave looking nerdy Glen? After having seen what we saw in Game of Thrones it would have been such a different role for Glen. Unfortunately, Hayter could only make the film as far as that.

While the comparisons with the eventual released Watchmen can continue for an eternity, we can say for sure that we as an audience missed out on a fine performance.

Good thing for HBO is that their mini-series on the same subject earned them some great acclaim and solid viewings. While Glen may not have got the chance to wear the superhero costume as yet he was truly a hero in the HBO’s epic saga. He after all shot for Thrones while his wife had a brain hemorrhage.

What did you make of the footage? Talk to us in the comments below!
