First Game Of Thrones Season 7 Poster Teases Battle Of Ice And Fire

Sure, Ice = White Walkers. But Fire = Hot Pie, right?

We finally have something concrete to tease Game of Thrones Season 7.

After a brief "in-production" tease, which showed the sword Oathkeeper, HBO have now revealed the first poster (via EW) for the upcoming seventh season, which you can check out below, and with it they're sending a pretty clear message.

While no characters appear on the poster, the imagery very much points to the ice and fire the entire saga is built around. Season 7 will likely see those two things coming together in more ways than one: Daenerys will finally arrive in Westeros, where she'll probably meet Jon Snow. With her will be the dragons, while it's expected that this will be the year we see the White Walkers making their move into Westeros.

That should nicely setup the Battle of Ice and Fire, a climactic event we're likely to see play out in the eighth and final season. Annoyingly though the poster does not include a release date, meaning all we know on that end is still just winter is coming in summer.

The poster comes ahead of Thrones' appearance at SXSW, which will include a GoT-themed escape room, and more excitingly a panel involving creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss along with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. Given the later release date it might still be a little too early for a trailer, but we should at least get a few tidbits and teases about the upcoming season.
