When it comes to his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kit Harington is coy.



  • Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman is not a member of the Eternals
  • But he is part of the first love triangle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Sersi and Ikaris.
  • Kit Harington refuses to reveal if he has a future in the MCU after ‘Eternals.’

Eternals will introduce Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The human character — known in the comics as the Black Knight — is not part of the titular supergroup.

Which begs the question: what does that mean for the future of Harington’s character? Will he appear in other Marvel films? Will he get a solo movie? Or, could Eternals be his only MCU appearance?

Dane Whitman has a romantic relationship with a member of the ‘Eternals’

In the Marvel comics, Whitman gets involved with a member of the Eternals known as Sersi.

But she’s also linked to another Eternal named Ikaris, which creates a comic book love triangle.

The teaser trailer for Eternals hints that this storyline will make it into the film — with Gemma Chan as Sersi and Harington’s Game of Thrones co-star Richard Madden playing Ikaris.

According to Harington, Sersi and Dane do have a “special connection.” But, he wouldn’t reveal if moviegoers would see a love triangle.

“I think there’s been a few things said about that in the press,” Harington told Total Film. “I wouldn’t say that a lot of it is accurate.

But he has a connection with Sersi, as does Richard’s character.”

Kit Harington shares the ‘main takeaway’ of his character

Harington wouldn’t reveal any plot details about the upcoming Marvel film.

But he did give a general description of his character, who has quite the lengthy history in the comic books.

The Game of Thrones alum says that Dane Whitman is “the human character of the story. He’s not an Eternal. He’s a character who works with the Natural History Museum in London.

But he’s not an Eternal – that’s the main takeaway!”

The ‘Eternals’ star plays coy about his future in the MCU

With Dane Whitman not being a member of the Eternals, what does that mean for his character in the MCU? Will this film set up the character for a solo outing? Maybe he will become part of the New Avengers in future phases of the MCU? Harington claims that even he doesn’t know the answer to… Brinkwire Entertainment short news.
