George RR Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, spoke about his plans a few hours before the broadcast of House of the Dragon. He would see several series like Marvel or Star Wars.
And if Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon were just the beginning of a vast universe? Game of Thrones author George RR Martin has ambitions as big as Disney.
an MCU Game of Thrones in development ?
While House of the Dragon has just begun, to rave reviews, George RR Martin is poised for the future. If he does not know the number of series that could see the light of day, he hopes that an extended universe, modeled on the model of Marvel and Star Warsmay arise.
How many spin-off series will be released? I don’t know, but I hope the answer will be “several”. And then we’ll have something comparable to Marvel’s model or Star Wars.
Game of Thrones was ultimately an appetizer. A direct sequel to season 8 of GoT is already validated. The HBO Max show will focus on John Snow aka Jean-Neige (not terrible in French). In any case, George RR Martin constantly receives solicitations from the writers for approval, which makes the book The Winds of Winter, always more behind schedule. “It’s like we’re in the NFL playoffs and I’m coaching every team. Emotionally speaking, it was strange” (via The Wall Street Journal and The Wrap).
For such an extended universe, it will have to be successful because after the cancellation of Batgirl, Warner Bros. is not going to sign checks all the time. But the House of the Dragon spin-off series seems off to a good start!
