Kit Harington has officially joined the cast of The Eternals, the latest Marvel Studios project.

CNN reported that in an announcement made by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige on Aug. 24 on Disney’s D23 Expo, Harington will play Dane Whitman, or the Black Knight.

The Black Knight was created in 1966 by Roy Thomas, drawn by John Verpoorten and George Tuska and first appeared in the 47th edition of The Avengers comic book.

Feige also confirmed the involvement of Gemma Chan as Sersi, another member of The Eternals.

Angeline Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and Don Lee have previously been announced as members of the film’s cast.

The Eternals in the comic book are a group of alien experiments that were created millions of years ago by ancient humans. Despite having the appearance of humans, they have superpowers, such as strength, flight, teleportation and mind control. In the film, they will fight against their own monstrous offspring, The Deviants. 

The film will be directed by Chinese filmmaker Chloe Zhao and is slated to be released on Nov. 6, 2020. (ran/wng)
