Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?
By now, Game of Thrones stars have gotten pretty good at turning the hype machine for upcoming episodes, and Season 7 is no exception. Maisie Williams is already proclaiming Season 7 as the year Game of Thrones “gets REAL,” while poor Kit Harington appears to have been denied scripts. Still exciting, though!
Game of Thrones may have left Cersei in a position of power greater than any she’d achieved thus far, even if the new Queen’s reign was likely to be a short one, with Daenerys’ dragon-backed fleet racing for Kings’ Landing. Fans have long-theorized who might be the one to ultimately end Cersei’s life, but who does Lena Headey feel deserves the honor?
HBO has yet to firm up exactly how much more Game of Thrones lies beyond Season 6, though the series has nonetheless begun to contract, bringing back numerous fan-favorites and tying off past stories. The world of Westeros may get even smaller soon, as Maisie Williams herself confirms another notable Northern return to the series.
Just last month, a big rumor suggested that Josh Boone’s New Mutants movie was eyeing Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and The Witch breakout Anya Taylor-Joy to star in the X-Men spinoff, with Alexandra Shipp in talks to reprise her role as young Storm from Apocalypse. Fox has predictably denied these rumors, Williams herself sorta-kinda confirms it in a new interview, though it sounds like nothing is close to official as of yet.
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams sees quite a bit of truth, but the same can’t be said of Arya in Season 6, after last year’s finale seemingly robbed her of sight. Now, our first Season 6 clip catching up with the littlest Lady Stark could take a tip from Matt Murdock, as Arya learns to fight blind.
If the last year of TV news has taught us anything, Game of Thrones actors don’t have the most trustworthy record when it comes to keeping secrets. Maisie Williams herself has “confirmed” a death or two most know to be false, though the longtime series star has something to say to the God of Death for a long-held fan theory.
Game of Thrones whipped fans into a fiery frenzy with its second full trailer for Season 6, revealing several surprise returns and the biggest dragons yet, among other Snow-y secrets. We couldn’t help but dive way deeper into each frame of footage. So what new secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
Following the record-breaking success of Deadpool, Fox is officially moving ahead with their New Mutants spinoff with Josh Boone set to direct based on a script he’s co-writing with Knate Gwaltney. The first cast and character details have reportedly arrived, with at least one X-Men: Apocalypse newcomer joining the fray alongside Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and The Witch breakout Anya Taylor-Joy.
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead. New Entertainment Weekly covers reveal the six major heroines of the new season, some looking far better off than we last left them.
