Kit Harington became a known star thanks to the role of Jon Snow he played in all eight seasons in the worldwide phenomenon series Game of Thrones. In 2019, soon after Game of Thrones concluded, Harington was cast as Dane Whitman in Marvel’s Eternals, which was released in theaters last November after it was delayed from its initial release date (November 2020) due to the pandemic.
Game of Thrones has been considered one of the best TV shows ever before its final season. The series finished in spring 2019 with the eighth, final season that left most of the fans very disappointed. After finishing that 8-year long path, many GoT stars started looking for new roles, including Richard Madden and Kit Harington.
In July 2019, Marvel officially announced Eternals, a movie in which Madden starred as Ikaris, and Harington starred as Dane Whitman. Although Whitman is also known as Black Knight in Marvel Comics, Harington’s role wasn’t so big in the movie itself, but the post-credit scene gave us a good tease on what can we expect from Dane and his character development.
It’s quite obvious that we will eventually see more of Harington in the MCU, but unfortunately, no one knows when and where will that be, not even Harington.
“The last film, as anyone who all have seen, it kind of sets an idea up that I might go further, so I’m hoping. But I think whenever you’re answering questions about these things, people point at you and say ‘liar’ as if you know more than other people, I have no idea. I genuinely don’t. I’m waiting for a call on it at some point.” — Kit Harington for The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show
We believe that Harington has a good and long future in the MCU, but we still need to wait on some legit information on when and where we are going to see him as Dane Whitman again.
Harington is certainly the best known for the role of Jon Snow in HBO’s Game of Thrones, and he also played Admiral Salen Kotch, the main antagonist of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare video game, in which he provided voice and motion capture for the character.
