Rosario Dawson to guest star in Daredevil.

I'm totally on board with this.

Aquaman to be played by... Khal Drogo??!!

I'm a fan of Jason Mamoa and it's great to see him score a major role, but seems a bit miscast, here.  Unless they feel they need somebody gargantuan to look respectable  shirtless standing next to the foam padding of the Superman and Batman costumes.

How are the scripts on those other two 2016 films?  Who's directing?  Seems like the ball should be rolling on both.

I think my sets are mostly all even older than those...  Not many in the box but a few.  :-\

Check eBay.  Even loose sets can get some money, especially if they have exclusive mini-figs.

Doesn't seem like a chain would be that expensive.

I missed not seeing that part. Part of Tyrion's finest moments.

I agree... no idea why they made that determination, I just remember hearing about it.

Still sealed those old LEGO sets are money.

Next week will be batshit.  Watch it live or disable your Internet connection until you watch it.

One thing I read about the Blackwater episode - in the book King's Landing raises a chain around the bay to trap the fleet.  The showrunners explained that the first thing HBO told them was there wasn't enough money to do the chain.  Kind of a shame as that's how the bulk of the fleet was destroyed.  So budget concerns drive a lot of decisions.

Power Man was handled well in the Jessica Jones comics a few years back.

I read the books years before a series was even proposed.  When they talked about it coming to HBO it seemed ludicrous.  But they've treated it amazingly.

There is talk that the "finale" might be a feature-length film.  They might need $100 million if the books end with dragons fighting the Night's King at the Wall.

They're all Marvel's noir-ish characters.  They're certainly not the spectacle you expect from Avengers.  If they're well-written, these series could prove to be quality viewing.  But quality along the lines of Boardwalk Empire, not Star Wars.

It seems like the truly more traditional medieval battles like Rob Stark's campaigns were glossed over, possibly because they'd really not be as visually stunning as things like Blackwater, or The Wall.

Chalk that up to budgets.  Season 1 and 2 were far more budget constrained than the show is now.  We never saw any traditional battles as they would have cost as much to film as an entire season.  Now that GoT is HBO's biggest hit series, they get enough money to splurge on big battles.

Even last year I read how the showrunners had to figure out how to cut the budgets on other episodes to be able to afford to film Blackwater.

Same as Blackwater.  Same director, in fact.

I'd be curious in a count of how many Night's Watch were killed in the episode.  As there were only 102 remaining, seems like at least half of them are dead.
