Deadline reports that Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington is taking a mystery role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and failed to mention what the film could be.
Last we saw Kit Harington, the Game of Thrones star’s Jon Snow character ended that HBO series with a walk north of The Wall into the forest with the Free Folk Wildlings, his punishment for slaying his mad queen lover, Daenerys Targaryen. So where did he go?
Deadline hears it is to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he will make his next film. Sources said that Harington will join one of Marvel and Kevin Feige’s superhero franchises.
Eternals is still adding cast members, which includes his on-screen brother Richard Madden playing the role of Ikaris. But it remains to be seen if that is the film he’ll be joining.
He’s been a fan-favorite to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, but would Marvel Studios recast the role this early? Doubtful.
