Jon Snow is officially entering the Marvel universe and his role has been revealed. Only a day ago, it was confirmed that the Game of Thrones megastar has been roped in to play an important but unknown role in The Eternals by Marvel.
That secret is now decoded as Kevin Feige kicked off its D23 presentation with this news along with the release date for Black Panther 2. According to reports, Harington will play Dane Whitman, who in the comics is the superhero, Black Knight. Harington is nominated for outstanding lead actor Emmy for the final season of Thrones, which wrapped in May, and his former Thrones co-star Richard Madden is among the cast Eternals.
Feige brought out the cast of Eternals, with Angelina Jolie getting a standing ovation. Feige confirmed Gemma Chan was joining the cast as Sersi. Chan appeared in the MCU earlier this year in Captain Marvel as the Kree warrior Minn-Erva.
Amongst other news included Feige showing off a brief message from the cast of Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson. The prequel is from director Cate Shortland and opens May 1, 2020.
Probably the most powerful cast there can be? Right?
