With the upcoming Marvel film The Eternals just months away more and more images and news have been coming out hyping up the film. Though a very different version of the group compared to their comic book counterparts Marvel plans on this film having a team member representing different groups of people across the world to fit an international audience.
One of the members of the Eternals is Dane Whitman AKA The Black Knight, being played by Game Of Thrones alumni Kit Harrington. His version of the character is the 3rd iteration from the comics as the first was in Medieval Europe and the second was a Super Villain. The character is an on and off member of both the Avengers and Defenders. But don’t be fooled, even though he joins the Eternals in the film he himself is one of the only Mortal characters.
Harrington seems enthusiastic about playing the character, but recently in an interview on Total Film the actor shared his thoughts on his character’s future in the MCU:
“I’ve got no idea whether my character goes on or not, I had read up on who he could be, or might be. So there’s the possibility for a longer trajectory. And hopefully, I think this is the tip of the iceberg for my character. I hope. But I just don’t know, you know? I’m as in the dark as anyone else. And I try not to live too far ahead in the future with anything. Even when I was in Game of Thrones, even on the sixth season, I presumed the seventh season wasn’t going to happen!“
The actor seemed to imply that he wanted to continue playing the character but is unsure if he will or will not reprise the role in future films or shows. Who knows if we will see The Black Knight reappear in perhaps the next Avengers film or his own Disney Plus show.
The film releases in theaters on November 5th.
