Let’s be honest: there is no way to create a show about The Rings of Power without including the Dark Lord, who had them made in the first place. Therefore, Sauron is anticipated to appear in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. However, is it possible that we have already seen a glimpse of the antagonist in the upcoming Amazon Prime series? Fans are certain that the Dark Lord made an appearance in the new trailer for the show that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and it looks suspiciously like Eminem!
A new trailer from The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, shown in SDCC 2022 panel, teased what looks to be Anson Boon’s mysterious figure. A number of fans have noted that Boon’s robes and flaming antics make him appear very similar to Annatar, who was Sauron’s alter ego during the Second Age.
However, the character is being compared to another familiar face. Netizens point out that “Sauron” resembles Marshall Mathers a.k.a. Slim Shady a.k.a. Eminem due to his short blonde hair and scowling expression.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is slated to hit Amazon on September 2, 2022.
