I’m glad that Emilia Clarke is down, because it could easily be scary for an actor to take on such a big project. Although it can’t hurt that she’s stepping into a Marvel property. When Thrones first premiered, it was an entirely new series. Anything made by Marvel, on the other hand, will already have a built-in fanbase. This doesn’t mean that the series won’t earn fans on its own merits, but it helps that so many viewers are already familiar with the MCU.
