game of thrones creators star wars

Game of Thrones will soon close out its buzzy, critically acclaimed eight-season run next year, putting an end to the zeitgeist that the HBO series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ruled over for nearly a decade. But Benioff and Weiss will soon find themselves in the cockpit of yet another beloved franchise.

Lucasfilm announced the Game of Thrones creators’ Star Wars project earlier this year, but details on their new series remain scarce. We only have their prior work to pull from to imagine what Benioff and Weiss’ Star Wars films will look like, so our closest guess would be a grittier take on the sci-fi series.

brie larson avengers 4

If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline can get confusing, don’t even try to make sense of the movies’ shooting schedules. But Marvel Studios is a well-oiled machine, and sometimes stars find themselves having to shoot scenes for a movie that could potentially spoil their introduction.

That was the case for Brie Larson, star of Marvel’s first female solo superhero movie, Captain Marvel. After being teased for years, she will make her highly anticipated debut in March 2019 and appear in Avengers 4 a few months later. But because of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4‘s back-to-back shooting schedules, Larson found herself shooting scenes for Avengers 4 before she even got to touch her solo debut.

Hopefully, Larson didn’t mind the spoilers.

We still have well over a year until the best DCEU superhero returns to the big screen, but Warner Bros. has remained astonishingly tight-lipped about the title of the Wonder Woman sequel.
