Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington is going to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the superhero character he will be playing is still under wraps.
According to Deadline’s sources, Kit will be joining the superhero franchise for an upcoming movie, but there is no word on which one it could be.
The news comes after it was revealed that Spider-Man will no longer be part of the MCU following Disney’s split with Sony Pictures.
The news of his involvement in the Marvel Universe is expected to be revealed fairly soon, with fans eager to find out which role he has agreed on.
The casting would come at the perfect time for Kit, following the end of Game Of Thrones. He revealed what happened to his character, Jon Snow, at the end of the series.
He told Entertainment Weekly: ‘Seeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free.
‘Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending.
‘As much as he had done a horrible thing [in killing Daenerys], as much as he had felt that pain, the actual ending for him was finally being released.’
He also previously admitted that he was annoyed his character didn’t get a chance to kill The Night King, which went to Arya Stark.
He admitted: ‘I think I felt like everyone else did, in that it had been set up for a long time, and then I didn’t get to do it. But I was so happy for Maisie [Williams] and Arya. I was secretly like, “I wanted to do that!”’
We can’t wait to see which Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero Kit is set to become.
