Pop Culture fans have a lot to look forward to this April, as season 8 of Game of Thrones has premiered and Avengers: Endgame premieres later in the month. The phenomenon hasn't gone unnoticed by directing duo Joe and Anothony Russo, who took time out of their interviews about their upcoming movie to talk about their predictions about the ending for Game of Thrones.
No doubt the change in subject was welcome for the brothers, as answering questions (or deflecting questions) about the new Marvel movie is probably getting really tiring. So they've turned to talk about another popular franchise.
Mashable spoke to the Endgame directors a week before the Thrones premiere and asked how they imagined the show will end. Even though the brothers are pretty great storytellers themselves, it was hard for them to give an answer.
"That show is so well-written that I can't imagine it's going to be predictable," Joe said. "But then I try to go, 'Well, all right, how is unpredictable going to be satisfying?' So it's impossible to say."
"It feels like Winterfell is going to get destroyed, and it's going to drive them south," said Anthony. "So in your brain, you go, 'Well, everyone's going to need a new home at some point, so a satisfying ending can't be that everyone dies.'"
"Somebody's gotta get on that throne, in a way there's some benevolence moving forward," Anthony continued. "Otherwise, it's a really f**king depressing ending."
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26, and Game of Thrones returns this Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.
