Kit Harington is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
According to reports, he will play Dane Whitman, better known in Marvel Comics as Black Knight in the upcoming movie “The Eternals”.
This means he will reunite on screen with his Game of Thrones co-star Richard Madden, who had previously been announced as a cast member.
The announcement was made during Marvel Studios’ Saturday presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.
In comic books, Black Knight is a longtime Avenger who wields a cursed sword that he inherited from his uncle – a former Avengers villain.
“The Eternals” also stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia McHugh, and Don Lee.
Fans at the D23 Expo also got a look at the costumes for the characters.
