HBO’s announcement of a new Game of Thrones spin-off has reignited fan casting for the role of Aegon Targaryen, the founder of the ruling Targaryen dynasty of Westeros. Fans have been clamoring for former Superman actor Henry Cavill to play the role, despite his previous adamant denials that he is not involved in the series.

Variety announced the development of a new prequel series based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world, focused on Aegon Targaryen. Fans immediately took to social media to express their desire to see Cavill play the title role.

While some fans argued that Cavill’s stoic nature would make him a perfect fit for the role, others called for his casting as a way to spite the showrunners of his previous fantasy series, The Witcher.

Despite the fan frenzy, there has been no official information about Cavill’s involvement in any Game of Thrones project. However, the actor has expressed his love for franchise entertainment and has previously taken on roles based on his passion for the source material.

Yet, with his recent exits from two franchises (The Witcher and the DCEU) and his upcoming involvement in adapting the hit tabletop strategy game Warhammer 40,000, it seems unlikely that Cavill would be eager to jump back into a similar world so quickly.

Overall, while fans continue to fan cast for the role of Aegon Targaryen, it remains to be seen whether or not Henry Cavill will officially join the Game of Thrones franchise.
