Henry Cavill denies being a part of House of the Dragon Season 2

Despite all the fan interest, Henry Cavill isn't interested to fly into Westeros on dragonback anytime soon.


Henry Cavill is everywhere these days. Cavill is in both Enola Holmes films and he's still set to appear for one final season of The Witcher next year. He's also going to be a part of the DC Universe going forward after rejoining the live-action cinematic universe as Superman.

Aegon the Conqueror was the first king of Westeros and he rode Balerion, also known as the Black Dread.

But, while Cavill will be a mainstay in the mainstream consciousness for several more years, one show we won't be seeing him in is House of the Dragon.

Due to the collective creativity of the internet, fans edited Cavill as Aegon Targaryen riding atop the Black Dread, Balerion. Although he does fit the part of the man who conquered Westeros and united the Seven Kingdoms (well, six, considering the Dorne maintained its independence), Cavill won't be part of the hit HBO show anytime soon.

Cavill joined Josh Horowitz's Happy, Sad, Confused podcast where he denied talks that he's joining the Game of Thrones universe.

The Witcher Season 3 will be the last time that Henry Cavill will play as Geralt of Rivia.

Specifically, here's what Cavill said about House of the Dragon:

To be fair, when I was watching House of the Dragon, I was like; "I feel like a lot of these guys would make really good witches." I think it would be cool to be in Westeros, but I don't think there's a place for me there though.

In the same podcast, Cavill revealed that he's not going to join Season 2 of Marvel Studios' hit TV show, Loki.

We don't know what the future holds for Cavill, but for now, it's safe to say that Cavill isn't going to be playing the Conqueror anytime soon.

Season 1 of House of the Dragon just concluded and Season 2 won't start filming until next year. If George R.R. Martin has his way, House of the Dragon will run for three more seasons, in order to give the Dance of the Dragons justice. By then, maybe Cavill's schedule will have cleared up and House of the Dragon will explore "earlier" eras of the Targaryen history. Who knows? Cavill might end up playing the role of Westeros' first king once that happens..

Speaking of Cavill, more than 200,000 fans have signed up to join the petition to keep him on Netflix's The Witcher, and to have the showrunners replaced instead.
