George R. R. Martin on ‘Endgame’, Updates ‘Game of Thrones’ Successor Shows

Author George R. R. Martin took some time out of his busy schedule of not completing the Song of Ice and Fire series to update us all on his Not-A-Blog today on a few different things.

GRRM says he went and saw Avengers: Endgame, praises the action in the final battle, and the true hero of the film- that darn San Francisco storage unit rat.

Stan Lee would have been proud.  Could he ever have dreamed that all those characters he and Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko and the rest of the Marvel team created in the early 60s would one day come to dominate global culture?  There’s an amazing story for you.

Oh… and yay for the rat.   The unsung hero.   They should make him an honorary Avenger.

 

He also offered a little bit of an update on those other Game of Thrones properties being developed by HBO, saying he dislikes the term “spinoffs”, so we won’t use it here either.

Oh, and speaking of television, don’t believe everything you read.   Internet reports are notoriously unreliable.  We have had five different GAME OF THRONES successor shows in development (I mislike the term “spinoffs”) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely.   The one I am not supposed to call THE LONG NIGHT will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer.   What are they about?  I cannot say.   But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of FIRE & BLOOD and come up with your own theories.

There had been reports last month that 1 of those 5 series from longtime GoT show producer Bryan Cogman was dead in development, and would not be happening.

We will of course let you know what we hear about the future of the other “successor shows”, and the looming novel conclusion of “A Song of Ice And Fire”. Someday.
