After loads of rumours and whispers, we can now officially confirm that Kit Harington is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the much-hyped flick The Eternals.

At this weekend’s D23 Expo, it was revealed that Harington has been cast as physicist Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight.

In the comics, the Black Knight is a fierce warrior who wields an indestructible weapon called the Ebony Blade, an enchanted sword passed down through generations.

The movie features an all-star cast, including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and fellow Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden.

Meanwhile it was previously rumoured that Keanu Reeves and Millie Bobby Brown would also be joining the line-up but since no announcement was made at San Diego Comic-Con or D23, I’m guessing this was just a rumour but then again Marvel has been known to throw curveballs at the last minute.

The Eternals is scheduled for release on November 6, 2020.
