Game of Thrones Season 5

After the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5 was leaked online last week, HBO decided to go ahead and release it for all to see!

We may have even given a glimpse of a flashback scene. George R.R. Martin’s novels are known for their many flashbacks, and I’ll be honest, those chapters add color and depth to characters I love to hate, making outright loathing a difficult task. In a Q&A session last year, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed that Season 5 would be the first season of the show to include flashbacks. Do you think you spotted one in the trailer?

Avatar/Korra/Disney Crossovers

I just stumbled across these awesome crossovers that combine Disney characters with the world of Avatar: The Last Air Bender and Legend of Korra. Artist Robby Cook released some brand new designs recently (Yzma as a Ba Sing Se Queen is perfect!), which is probably why I came across them in my feed. I shared two of my favorites above–Mulan as a Kyoshi Warrior and Pocahontas as an Airbender–but you should definitely check them all out.

Do you have any ideas for other Disney characters?

First Daredevil Trailer

I’m pretty excited to check out the Daredevil series on Netflix, so I’m happy to announce that the first teaser trailer will be out today! As is so often the case nowadays, a teaser for the teaser was released yesterday. Watch the teaser teaser above, and keep an eye out for the full teaser! The show starts on April 10.

This is a shameless, selfish plug. I work hard to keep the Cast at Cons page at Middle-earth News up-to-date with the upcoming appearances of cast members from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
