New Game of Thrones theories emerge with each new episode, and this one was no exception.

There are quite a lot of Game of Thrones theories out there, and quite a few have been proven to be true both in past seasons and in the current one as well. Attention! Spoilers for episode 4 will follow!

But after episode 4’s epic dragon battle, there are a few more theories that may be addressed in the new episodes. Some of them are specifically about Bran Stark (Issac Hempstead-Wright) and others about Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Game of Thrones Theories about Jaime’s Survival

At the end of episode 4, Jaime Lannister was last seen floating in a deep pond after a failed attempt to take Daenerys out. Some feared he might die then and there. But given how important he is as a character, some consider this to be quite unlikely. So what will happen to the golden Lannister? Since the next episode shows Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) in front of the Lannister army, it is presumed that she will take the surviving army and also capture Jaime too.

If this does happen, some are wondering whether this will this put Jamie Lannister on the path to killing Cersei (played by Lena Hedley). Jaime being the one to kill his sister has been theorized for quite a while. Maggy the Frog predicted that Cersei would die at the hands of her younger brother, which Jaime is considered to be.

Bran’s Next Move

There are hints in the new episode trailer that Bran and Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) have been communicating via raven. He might also have very well told Jon about his parentage. But the trailer also reveals that Bran knows that the White Walkers are getting closer. As he was branded by the Night King last year, will he be the one to let them in? Or could he be the key to rescuing everyone?

Bran Stark is also the Three-Eyed Raven, so many are expecting exciting reveals and tactical moves from him. Perhaps giving Arya the Valyrian steel dagger is one of them? Another of the Game of Thrones theories states that he is also Bran the Builder. Fans came to this idea because of his ability to move through time. Did he build the wall 8,000 years ago to keep the White Walkers out?

We’ll have to keep watching to find out. But one thing is for certain. Things are about to go down!

Black Panther Reveals New Poster And Footage At SDCC 2017

Marvel released an exclusive footage and a new poster for Black Panther during its SDCC 2017 panel.

Marvel revealed a slew of new details about its upcoming cinematic releases, but one of the highest acclaimed ones was Black Panther. During its SDCC 2017 panel, Marvel Studios released a new poster for the movie and also played an exclusive footage of what is to come.

Black Panther Gets New Poster and Exclusive Footage

 

The new poster for the film shows T’Challa as he stands atop a panther statue. In doing so, he is looking over Wakanda as aircraft are also across the sky.

“Long live the king” is used as the tagline and can be found under the name and production studio, with the released date (2.16.2018) placed underneath it.

Those attending Black Panther’s panel also got an exclusive first look at footage from the upcoming movie. At least according to reports, it seems that they will be the only ones able to do so. This montage has yet to be posted online and might never be uploaded.

Details on the Footage

Nonetheless, the footage was discussed by many media sources. This first look at the movie features a sequence set in South Korea. It presents T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), along with Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) dressed in formal civilian attire at a casino. They seem to be shadowing Ulysses Klaue (played by Andy Serkis), the arms dealer.

Everett K. Ross, the government agent first introduced by Martin Freeman in Civil War, also makes an appearance as he has a scene with Klaue. Things go rather wild after the casino scene. T’Challa is being chased by a car, morphs into the Black Panther costume as he does so. His return to Wakanda leads to a combat scene on the sound of war drums and later a press conference.

The footage then zipped back to South Korea and shots of people in a museum, a car battle, and Killmonger confronting T’Challa, to keep it short. Killmonger also reveals his own Black Panther-like costume, this being gold-hued.

Although the footage will seemingly be kept under wraps, Marvel did post the cast’s reaction to the montage, and their excitement almost makes up for it.

 

Meanwhile, we can still watch the teaser trailer, released in early June.
