'Game of Thrones' Creators Drop out of Comic-Con Panel in Unsurprising Move

By

The only thing scarier than battling thousands of undead zombie corpses in the dark is facing your own fans at a San Diego Comic-Con panel, apparently. In possibly the most unsurprising news ever, Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff dropped out of appearing at the show's Comic-Con panel along with one director and two of the show's cast members.

If you'll recall, the final season of Game of Thrones left a lot to be desired, and that's putting it mildly. It was generally deemed "bad, like, just really bad" and no one could contain their disappointment, least of all the actual actors on the show, who were repeatedly on record in interviews making cringe-y faces when asked about the season and choosing "disappointing" when asked to describe the show's ending in one word. 

So it doesn't come as a shock at all that the show's creators wouldn't want to attend their own public flogging.
