Kit Harington Opens up About His MCU Future: “Nothing’s in the Works at the Moment”

Kit Harington Opens up about His MCU Future Nothings in the Works at the Moment

Kit Harington joined the MCU as a character Dane Whitman/ Black Knight with the release of ‘Eternals’ back in 2021. Even though the movie generally received mixed reviews, fans loved Harington’s character and couldn’t wait to see him in more projects.

Whitman and Sersi had a relationship before the Deviants struck, but that obviously fell through when Whitman discovered that she was in fact an Eternal. Whitman developed his own story by the end of the movie when he accepted and started wielding Ebony Blade.

It’s natural to expect that Whitman will reprise his role along with the rest of the Eternals, however in recent weeks the rumors have been spreading that the planned ‘Eternals’ sequel was canceled and then, that it’s being reworked into something else entirely.

Harington’s Whitman was then brought up in connection with the upcoming ‘Blade’ reboot, as one reportedly revealed plot point is that of Ebony Blade having a major role in the movie and the title of the movie itself being a reference to both the blade and the notable vampire hunter.

In his recent interview with Screenrant, Harington however debunked most of those rumors as he revealed what his MCU future looks like and as you will learn in a moment, it’s not good.

I don’t know, though. The honest answer is nothing’s in the works at the moment. If they decide to use the character in something, or as a solo thing, I’d be very excited by it. But I don’t think it’s planned at the moment.

During the same interview, Harington revealed that his ‘Game of Thrones’ spinoff, ‘Snow,’ was also shelved, so, things aren’t going as great.

Currently, it’s off the table, because we all couldn’t find the right story to tell that we were all excited about enough. So, we decided to lay down tools with it for the time being. There may be a time in the future where we return to it, but at the moment, no. It’s firmly on the shelf.
