IGN shares House Stark teaser and character posters

HBO has released their next teaser and set of season 4 character posters this afternoon. Shortly after EW shared their exclusive House Lannister promo, IGN brings us a House Stark teaser featuring glimpses of Sansa, Arya and Bran Stark along with Jon Snow.

In addition to the teaser, we have four new character posters with the season four premiere date and the tagline “Valar Morghulis.”

Ours is the Fury: Wow that voiceover from Littlefinger is wicked shady. But I guess that’s appropriate. I’m excited to see everyone getting their own poster, and can’t wait to see what else is revealed today!

  • I really hope to see a Stannis, Yara and Sandor poster. I know the latter two are considered more “supporting” but there is some good shit coming up for both characters. Think they deserve a feature.

  • kris,

    if they really go by House, we have a good chance of getting the first two at least. And maybe they do a “misc characters” one, too. *fingers crossed*

  • Satin,

    I think we’ll see a House Greyjoy one with Theon and Yara, maybe combined with House Bolton’s Roose and Ramsay. We’ll probably get Dany, Jorah and Barristan/Daario. I definitely want to see Oberyn, too.

  • Hand of the Kingslayer,

    Oberyn and Ellaria will get one, I imagine, representing House Martell. I also expect one each for House Tyrell and House Baratheon. That would leave Sam, the Hound, Varys, LF, Brienne and Ygritte as possibilities for misc characters.

  • Greg,

    sorry to disappoint you (well – not really), but legally speaking, none of the kids can get naked before their character is at least sixteen. So don’t expect to see Sophie naked on the show any time soon. Or ever.

  • What is with that grid-like thing that’s behind Sansa in a bunch of these shots? At first I thought it was unfinished VFX, but since it keeps popping up in the trailers I assume it isn’t. I can’t figure out what it’s supposed to be though, some kind of cage or lift?

  • Again with the nakedness? If I were you I’d hope for a new dress for the poor girl. Aren’t pimps supposed to buy things for their ladies? Littlefinger, get your priorities straight!

  • I love how these are animated teasers.
    I always wanted the show to deliver CGI-stylized flashback scenes from Robert’s Rebellion during Bran’s scenes with Bloodraven (the show needs to get there at some point and season 5 is as good as any since Bran will have only one ADWD chapter to work with for the entire season). Something of this style would be cool.

  • Greg:
    I hope they show Sansa naked now that she’s 18 I can say it as opposed to just think it

    I really hope Sophie never sees this kind of comment…

  • Aidan Gillen is a really good actor, so don’t mistake me there, but it’s just not there as Littlefinger in my opinion. Especially since he changes his voice every other episode. But it is what it is. Too late now.

  • Arian,

    There’s a better chance that they’ll give Strong Belwas a poster that Barristan, sadly. We’ll have to wait till season 6 for him to be taken seriously.

  • Doug,

    I love him as Littlefinger. He should hold on to one voice/accent, though. It seems like over the seasons his voice has become a parody of its former self.

  • Greg:

    The biggest perv comment ever..

  • I really hope they dont start pushing Arya to the side and treating her as a secondary/minor character. She is clearly one of the most popular characters in the show (with Tyrion, Dany and Jon) and Maisie Williams is one of the best actors on the show (and a brilliant ambassador for the show, she is great in interviews/conventions). I hope they feature her as as much as possible in the next few seasons

  • I’m going to guess there will not be any other “reveal posters” other than the Stark and Lannister ones. Only other one that might happen is a Dany/Jorah/Missandei one.I could see a Stannis/Mel/Davos, Margery/Lora’s/QoT, Theon/Yara/Ramsay/Roose, and possibly a Yrgritte/Tormund/Mance short video like the two ones posted today. I can’t see them making a character poster for a brand new character this season.

  • Greg:

    Nope! Even though Sophie is now 18, she is still playing an underaged character. She has also grown up on the show and I highly doubt D & D would ever want to do that.

    Also, I really hope you are not much older than 18. Otherwise, you’re a creeper.

    Bran’s tree vision gives us a nice opportunity for a Sean Bean cameo in season 5. Fingers crossed.

  • Hand of the Kingslayer:
    I love the Starks. They get all my cookies. All of them.

    Good, good! More cookies for my Lannisters to break! :P Bwahaha

    Evil laugh out of the way, I have to say that the teaser looks amazing and so do the posters. I particularly love the Jon Snow and Arya ones. Though I think Arya looks almost as young in that as in season 2!

    I thought a stroke of genius that Aidan Gillien took on the Littlefinger part. I also like how Martin wrote the character so that always helps.

  • jentario,

    Indeed. Its a means of venting my non-living-in-United-States-so-I-can’t-view-that-new-video rage. And a by-product of my unwilling-to-switch-to-Firefox-and-download-that-link-Carne-posted stubbornness. Also Sophie’s a looker.

  • Notice how Bran isn’t wearing that fur rag seen in the trailers.
    Assuming he only wears it out in the snow, that picture must be close to the end of this season where he’s inside of the cave.

  • WeirwoodTreeHugger: Nope!Even though Sophie is now 18, she is still playing an underaged character.She has also grown up on the show and I highly doubt D & D would ever want to do that.

    It’s actually not creepy at all just completely natural. Society has made people think it is… Wanting to see a beautiful (young) woman naked / wanting to reproduce with her is about as natural as it gets… Age of the male isnt really relevant here…

    At the same time the comment is completely and utterly unnecessary. No one cares you want to see her naked (or people are well creeped out by it). I would be interested to see how Sophie would react to these comments (flattered / disgusted / doesn’t care… i suppose it’s all possible i guess) but i doubt she is going to read this.

    I agree you are not going to see Sophie naked on Game of Thrones ever since it’s probably in her contract. The nudity laws are highly arbitrary and vary from country to country (UK and US laws are really harsh compared to France for example where teenage nudity is really common in movies) so what might not be fine in UK might be fine in Croatia for example so it’s certainly not impossible i guess but i imagine show runners dont feel comfortable going there even if Sophie would be. She might well do nudity in movies in the future who knows… She did seem to have a scene where she was touching herself though this season under the sheets so there is that to look forward to for you i guess!

  • I honestly don’t understand how people don’t think Aiden Gillen is doing his voice deliberately. It’s Irish like it was in the beginning but with the hints of Welsh that all the characters in the Vale had. I don’t think he is actually wobbling on this. Considering that he growls when delivering these kinds of lines and that is when people say his accent “slips” it is when LF is not acting for the court. There’s that hint of the poor Vale boy he was and has tried so hard to get away from. It’s actually a little too overt for me, so I guess I might be wrong, but I almost never see anyone defend AG’s voice.

  • there’s something odd about sansa’s background in the snowy scene…
    it’s like they’re trying not to show the final composite of that shot bcz of maybe a spoiler? or unfinished background?

  • Skipjack,

    That’s probably because Aidan Gillen/Littlefinger fans don’t care what others think of their favorite and keep on liking what they like without feeling the need to defend or justify it.

  • Where the hell is Rickon?

    This better not be indicative of no appearances for Rickon, Shaggydog and Osha in Season 4.

    (And yes I’ve read ASOIAF and am aware Rickon isn’t a POV character, but this is the HBO series which is radically different, and Rickon got more screen time in Season 3. So give us more Rickon!)

  • William Stark,

    Maybe it’s not an issue of what’s “natural” and maybe it’s just an issue of over-sexualizing a teenage girl (seeing as Sophie just turned 18 and has filmed all the footage for seasons 1-4 as a minor).

    Maybe it’s called “learning some self restraint”.

  • Check out the bottom right of Sansa’s poster. She’s wearing the same kind of dress the ladies of the Eyrie wore in Season 1.

  • +1 for Rygar, Stone Cold Bastard

    Why is there no Rickon? Isn’t he a Stark anymore? OR they’re saving him for last. Looking angry, with a glimpse of his wolf also. And an Osha poster too.
    I also hope he’s in at least a few scenes. Even for tv viewers it would be nice to be reminded of him, see him go where Davos is going to pick him up, even if it’s not Skagos. Plus it has been hinted at Ramsay hunting, and Bran can’t be hunted anymore. So it has to be Rickon, in this season -next year he would already be too far away.
