Twitter spots an Avenger in Game of Thrones season 1, wonders if that’s where he ended after Thanos’ snap
A Game of Thrones fan has spotted a ‘time traveller’ who looks an awful lot like Marvel’s Bucky Barnes during a rewatch of the show’s first season. The fan shared the moment on Twitter, leading to a spirited discussion among fans of both series.
“Watching the Game oThrones first episode and there a guy in the background with a straight up Patagonia jacket, blue jeans and boots,” wrote Twitter user Kevin Biegel, alongside a short video of Jaime Lannister, with the extra in question walking in the background.
Several fans reacted to Kevin’s post, with some declaring that the extra is a time traveller, others comparing him to Bucky, and noting the smaller budget HBO must have had back then, considering the extra appears to be wearing modern clothes.
“Ah, yes. Back in the days when HBO didn’t have such a large budget. Simpler times,” one fan wrote. “Also amusing that he looks kinda like The Winter Soldier. HE’S THERE TO KILL SOMEONE,” wrote another. “That is Bucky Barnes. Now we know where the snap’d ended up,” joked a fan, making a reference to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War.
