George R.R. Martin Talks About Killing Off Characters and How The Avengers Inspired Him

Game of Thrones

Now there are three episodes of Game of Thrones left and the incredible series will come to an end finally, but before the show comes to an end. Last week fans watched the epic battle that was met with mixed reactions from fans. I loved it, and for me, it wasn’t that dark!

Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin sat down with Fast Company for an interview and opened up about how he feels about killing off characters, whether or not they were good or bad. He also talked about The Avengers and how he was inspired by the character Wonder Man, how he was a bad guy who only pretends to be a good guy, but in the end, actually turns out being a good guy.

“Wonder Man was a guy who joins the Avengers a new superhero who appears and he joins the Avengers but he’s really a supervillain who’s been created to join them pretending to be a hero, join them on false premises and then destroy them when their guard is down from within but when it gets to the moment that he’s supposed to destroy them he has a crisis of conscience and he can’t destroy them. So he sacrificed his own life and dies instead. I love this comic, it was terrific.”

Martin also talked about co-operating with actors, directors, and showrunners while his story was being brought to life for HBO:

“When you get involved in television or film you’re working with a large team and that’s great you have other creative people you can have and they all have ideas too and some of them have their own areas of expertise … the actor is bringing their own interpretation to it. All of that is it can be very exhilarating but it can also be traumatic because sometimes their creative vision and your creative vision don’t match and you get the the the famous creative differences thing.”
