The MCU never stops presenting new superheroes with its films and series. Last year, the franchise unveiled the Eternals, a group of cosmic beings who have lived on Earth in secret for thousands of years to protect humans from Deviants. The feature film introduced a lot of new promising characters like Théna, Makkari or even Kingo.
Others went into “peekaboo” mode quickly in the film, but fans really hope to see them front and center in other Marvel productions. This is particularly the case of Dane Whitman, Sersi’s boyfriend, who is announced as the future Black Knight in the Eternals post-credit scene.
But since then, Marvel had given no news of the character. So we don’t know what the studio’s plans are for the superhero and his interpreter Kit Harington. The actor was asked about the subject during a recent interview with Josh Horowitz (via Screen Rant).
Kit Harington in the dark
During his exchange with Josh Horowitz, Kit Harington hasn’t been very vocal about the MCU future of Black Knight. The actor candidly replied that he had no idea what Kevin Feige & Co were planning for his character. Kit Harington, however, said he was still ready to continue the adventure within the famous superhero franchise.
” […] I don’t know much about what they are planning”said the ex-star of Game of Thrones on the tone of the confidence. ” [Mais] I hope to be involved in future stuff, […] with Dane Whitman […] But honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know what their plans are. »
Black Knight alongside Blade?
Lately, Marvel had filled up with crisp news about the next MCU films and series. Many fans had been watching for news of Black Knight and Kit Harington, to no avail. Since then, rumors have been circulating that the superhero could well make his comeback in phase V of the MCU with the film Blade, the theatrical release of which has been announced for November 2023.
Of course, we will only know the end of the story when Marvel would like to tell us more. Until then, Black Knight fans and Kit Harington will have to take their troubles patiently!
