See the Downfall of Dragons and the History of the Dragonpit in this Animated Game of Thrones Featurette

The longer Game of Thrones has gone on, the more and more it’s plunged into the nitty-gritty of George R.R. Martin’s fantastical setting and its most obscure concepts—so it’s good that HBO’s home releases are packed with little animated primers to keep you in the know when it comes to Westeros’ long history.

After Justice League, Henry Cavill Is Excited to Play the Superman of the Comics

The Superman we’ve seen in DC’s movie universe has been...let’s say controversial at times. It’s a characterisation that has been built more around the character’s power, and reactions to that power, than the ideals he champions.
