The actor plays Dane Whitman in the new installment of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the comics, that’s the name of the superhero Black Knight.
Kit Harington has gone from giving life to one of the most important characters of recent years on television to join the most powerful franchise in cinema today. The actor, who played Jon Nieve on Game of Thrones, now give life to Dane Whitman on Eternals, the last installment of the Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Harington’s role in Eternals It is small, but it serves to introduce a character who could give a lot of play in the future of the franchise. In the comics, Dane Whitman a man who becomes Black knight when getting the Ebony Sword, a gadget that gives you more speed, strength and powers.
On Eternals, directed by Chloé Zhao, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been able to find some clues about the connection of Harington’s character and the Ebon Blade. Also the second post-credit scene of the film is focused on him and his future potential in the franchise. Nevertheless, Harington has acknowledged that he joined Marvel without knowing the studio’s plans with his character.
“We talked about some … The truth of everything is that at this stage, whether or not they are [con planes de futuro], they don’t tell me“, the actor tells SensaCine. “There is a trajectory. Could there be a future. He is what he is in this movie. And that’s something … With few discussions like that, it was enough to get me excited and the whole idea of being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is exciting in itself, “he adds.
Although this is what Harington tells, the truth is that the actor already knows how to answer questions that he cannot answer. Game of Thrones It has been quite a school in that sense. Especially when it was his turn lying to avoid being leaked that his character was resurrected after being murdered at the end of the fifth season of HBO fiction.
If we consider the second post-credit scene of Eternals, It seems that Marvel and Harington already have some idea of what will happen to Dane Whitman in the future. But, as always with the studio, fans can only wait to find out.
