Most people around the world are familiar with Norse Mythology, thanks to MCU’s Thor. Now brace yourself for Zack Snyder’s version of the lore. And we are expecting a hell lot of serious action scenes, though in an animated version. What’s even better is the fact two of Game of Thrones alum, Pilou Asbæk and Kristofer Hivju, will be playing major roles in the show.
As announced during Netflix’s Geeked Week, Snyder has called together the Norse gods for his upcoming mythology-inspired animated series. John Noble (Fringe) will voice king of the Norse gods, Odin, Pilou Asbæk will voice thunder god Thor, and Paterson Joseph (Timeless) will voice trickster Loki.

The cast also features Lauren Cohan as Inge, Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) as Sigrid, Stuart Martin (Medici) as Leif. Rahul Kohli (The Haunting of Bly Manor) as Egill, Jamie Clayton (Sense8) as The Seid-Kona, Kristofer Hivju as Andvari. Peter Stormare (American Gods) as Ulfer, Jamie Chung (The Gifted) as Hel, and Corey Stoll (House of Cards) as Hrafnkel.
We can expect a lot of gore and blood, just like the animated series Invincible. Pilou will also be joining fellow Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa on the sets of Aquaman 2.

The world is full of mysteries. Some are beautiful in nature like the working of the universe. Others, grimmer in context, are created by humans. Mostly, these enigmas are cover-ups for misdeeds of the past. They appear to be vastly different from what they usually are, and hence complicate the real story. There are many real-life astounding stories of how criminals have tried to keep their acts under layers of lies and shadows. It takes decades of investigation to get to their roots. Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has joined HBO Max’s adaptation of The Staircase.
Inspired by the Netflix’s true-crime documentary series, this star-studded drama already boasts a cast list including Toni Collette, Colin Firth, Juliette Binoche, Rosemarie DeWitt and Parker Posey. Sophie will portray one of convicted killer Michael Peterson’s adopted daughters, Margaret Ratliff.
Written by co-executive producers, The Devil All the Time’s Antonio Campos and American Crime Story’s Maggie Cohn. The series centres on Michael (played by Firth) and the mysterious death of his wife Kathleen (Collette).
Campos will also direct six of the eight episodes. Little Fires Everywhere star DeWitt is on board as Kathleen’s sister Candace Zamperini. The Good Wife’s Posey will play Freda Black – the assistant district attorney and prosecutor in the murder case.
Sophie will also be seen in the thriller movie Heavy. Are you excited about Sophie Turner’s return to HBO? Talk to us in the comments below!
We have seen several protective mothers on-screen over the years, but very few come close to Lysa Arryn from Game of Thrones. After losing her husband, she kind of lost her mind and became overprotective of her son, Robert Arryn. Actress Kate Dickie, beautifully portrayed the character, bringing out the craziness and a mother’s love perfectly. Now we can’t even imagine any other person in that role. She will now be playing the lead in a short film Hello, Muscles.
The short film will also feature Outlander star Richard Rankin. The film, Hello, Muscles is about a young girl, on the cusp of secondary school. She is coming to terms with her role as a young carer.
The mission of the film is to raise awareness, spark conversation and dispel the stigma surrounding young carers. By giving a human voice to their role and exploring what it feels for a young person to care for a loved one.
The film will be donated to a young carers charity for use as an educational tool. Encouraging young carers to come forward to receive support as well as reminding teachers to seek out unidentified young carers.
Hello, Muscles is currently in pre-production and is being made in solidarity with young carers. With the support of a range of organisations, including The Carers Trust, Young Carers Club, The Children’s Society and NHS England.
A prequel play to Game of Thrones is in talks, and hopefully, we’ll see a younger Lysa Arryn coming to life. What do you think of the short feature? Tell us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones had a long list of lost/underused characters. Fans have often wondered what happened to them, as the books aren’t complete yet. One of them was Michiel Huisman’s Daario Naharis. The handsome lover of Daenerys was last seen in the episode ‘The Winds of Winter’. Daenerys left her brave confidante in Meereen to maintain peace. Even the actor along with the fans waited till the last season for the character to return. Well, we didn’t get to see Daario again, but we can see Huisman return to the silver screen. Michiel Huisman is back with Apple’s action-thriller series Echo 3.
Huisman will join previously announced cast member Luke Evans in the upcoming series. Echo 3 follows Amber Chesborough, a brilliant young scientist, who is the emotional centre of a small American family. When she goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, her brother (Evans) and her husband, Prince (Huisman) — two men with deep military experience and complicated pasts — struggle to find her against the explosive backdrop of a secret war.
Echo 3 will be shot in both English and Spanish and has been given a 10-episode order. It is based on the Keshet Broadcasting series ‘When Heroes Fly’ created by Omri Givon and inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund. Mark Boal created the series and will serve as executive producer and showrunner. The series will be produced by Keshet Studios, with Keshet Studios’ Peter Traugott serving as executive producer.
