Game of Thrones Season 7 Poster: The Battle of Fire and Ice Begins

A new Game of Thrones season 7 poster was just revealed by HBO, and it teases what’s coming when the show finally returns to the cable network this summer. The poster (via EW), which you can see in the gallery below, shows a a sheet of ice with fire beginning to make it crack. It’s been released in Austin, TX in honor of the SXSW festival. At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) is now Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.

Though we don’t know exactly what’s coming (except Winter, of course), Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, tweeted this late last year: “Just finished reading season 7, s**t gets REAL. I’d start preparing yourselves now… scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this… Holy BALLS.”

We still don’t know the exact premiere date for Game of Thrones season 7. We’ve been told summer, but that’s all that’s been said. As showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will be participating in a panel with Williams and Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, at SXSW, we may be getting more information soon. The show is, of course, based on the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Last season, however, the TV series moved past the point where the books have stalled.

So, what do you think of the new Game of Thrones season 7 poster? Are you ready for the battle of fire and ice? What does this mean for the characters? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @ComingSoonnet!
