Lord Of The Rings fans are drawing comparisons between Eminem and Sauron after Amazon revealed the show’s latest trailer.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is an upcoming American fantasy television series based on the novel The Lord of the Rings and its appendices by J. R. R. Tolkien.
The first season is scheduled to premiere on Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
A first look at Anson Boon in character as Sauron – even though the show not yet confirming his casting as the franchise villain – has made many fans speculate about his resemblance to the Slim Shady.

Amazon spent the GDP of an entire nation to produce a LOTR show where Sauron looks like a malnourished Eminem https://t.co/KX4uPuqKp4

Frodo:”There are markings. It’s some form of Elvish. I can’t read it.”
Gandalf:”There are few who can. The language is that of mordor, in the common tongue it says…”

Why my man looking like Eminem? I figured his fair form would look more “fair.” I would say Shadow of Mordor did it better. Also I love the trope when the villain has unnatural beauty or good looks. Griffith from Berserk being another example. pic.twitter.com/35B1eyGrFt

Sauron: Hmmm, I need a disguise that will help me gain the trust of the peoples of Arda. Something fair and comely… Oh yes, I will go as Eminem. pic.twitter.com/1sySZLUfMP

My wife watched the new #RingsOfPower trailer and said “Sauron was Eminem?!” and I had to make this so all of you can never unsee it as well. pic.twitter.com/eLTgOybhnL
