Kit Harington's time as Jon Snow is coming to an end -- and he doesn't know what to do next.
The 30-year-old actor covers the June/July issue of Esquire, and inside the magazine, he reveals that he's not quite sure what life post-Game of Thrones has in store.
“Thrones nicely bookended my twenties, but I’m 30 now. Maybe I can reinvent myself and get away from an image that’s so synonymous with Thrones," says Harington, who has a miniseries, Gunpowder, and a film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, in the pipeline. "But maybe this was the role I was always meant to play and that was it.”

Watch: Kit Harington Says 'Much Grander' New Season of 'Game of Thrones' Has 'So Much More Ambition'
For showrunners »
If you’re scoping out this article, odds are that you have some level of familiarity with the Reverse-Flash – be it Eobard Thawne or Daniel West – by way of either the comic books or TV show. And while both of those knaves have given the Scarlet Speedster his share of headaches, it goes without saying that Negative-Flash will provide different sorts of problems come this August.
You see, this isn’t simply another new evil speedster in town. No. As it turns out, The Flash and Negative-Flash are one and the same! Right now, details remain sketchy, but it’s becoming clearer that whatever happens in the story arc preceding “Negative” will imbue Barry Allen with some new powers that’ll be hard to get the hang of, thus corrupting him to an extreme degree.
Normally, we’d approach something like this with caution – and we still are – but the »

Although Action Comics #976 was probably the most important read this week when it came to the more significant happenings in the DC Universe as a whole, it’s undeniable that The Flash #19 was not to be overlooked, either. Granted most of the issue was spent fleshing out the “Sins of the Father” story arc, but it was the final page that demanded the attention of all.
As it turns out, Eobard Thawne/Zoom (could we please go back to calling him the Reverse Flash now that Daniel West is dead?) has broken out of Iron Heights Prison. Not only that, but he now recalls the world of Flashpoint – and possibly even the time that preceded the New 52.
Now, a complete recollection of past realities is possible given that Superman has merged his pre and post-Flashpoint selves and realities, in addition to the adult Wally West jogging everyone’s memories of in Titans. »

I’m pretty sure that not many would argue when I say that The Flash is currently on a hot streak, both as a television show and as a comic book. And while they’re equally as intriguing and feature some of the same characters, they’re different beasts entirely.
This week, a new story arc begins with The Flash #18, titled “Sins of the Father.” In it, Wally West/Kid Flash seeks to uncover some truths behind his father, Daniel West/The Reverse Flash, whom he’s desperately in search of. Hey, even if one of your parents were a crazed supervillain, I’m sure you’d want to know more about him.
Over the course of the issue, his journey takes both him and Barry Allen to Belle Reve Penitentiary, which many of you will recognize as the black site used to incarcerate the Suicide Squad. Not surprisingly, an »

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Liv Tyler (The Leftovers), Peter Mullan (Top of the Lake) and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) have signed on to star in the upcoming three-part historical thriller series Gunpowder from the BBC.
Scripted by Ronan Bennett (Top Boy), who devised the project with Harington and Daniel West, the series will explore the true story behind the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, where a group of English Catholics attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I in order to restore a Catholic to the throne. The plot was ultimately foiled when Guy Fawkes was captured guarding the explosives.
Harington is set to play Robert Catesby, the man responsible for devising the plan, and the driving force behind the plot (who also happens to be a direct ancestor of Harington in real life). Gatiss will portray King James’ spymaster-in-chief Robert Cecil, with Mullan as Jesuit Father Garnet »
