It’s been a hell of a few days for Marvel and Thrones fans, and if you’re a fan of both, you’re likely feel bit broken after watching both the emotional finale of Avengers: Endgame and the big battle with the White Walkers in Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3, The Long Night. It sounds too good to be true that we’ve been treated to two epic genre showdowns in the past few days, but which is the best?
