Marvel’s Black Knight is coming to the MCU and Kit Harington will be playing him in the comic book feature The Eternals. Amid the relentless onslaught of news coming out of the D23 Expo – from Disney+ information to the studio’s theatrical release slate to the new attractions headed to Disney theme parks – was the revelation that Kit Harington is joining the MCU. The actor recently wrapped up his decade-ish-long run as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, the most popular TV show in the world and he will now be a part of the most popular cinematic franchise in the world.

Kit Harington is set take on his first major comic book role in Marvel Studios’ 2020 release, joining a ridiculous cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Gemma Chan, and in a Game of Thrones reunion, Richard Madden. But Kit Harington will not be playing one of the titular Eternals; he will be playing Dane Whitman, a character who becomes the hero known as the Black Knight.

The Black Knight was rumored to show up in Avengers: Endgame, and while that didn’t happen, he is seemingly now on the way for real. Fans had a long time to familiarize themselves with Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, and with Dane Whitman coming soon to the MCU, it seems like a worthwhile endeavor to set an early start on getting to know Kit Harington’s Black Knight.

If you don’t want to be told ‘you know nothing,’ read on to find out what you need to know about Kit Harington’s Eternals character.

The actor’s character Dane Whitman may be obscure, but he has a lot of potential in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

At Saturday’s D23 celebration, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, announced Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington has joined the cast of Chloe Zhao’s The Eternals as Dane Whitman, better known as the Black Knight. Yes, in a bit of clever synchronicity, Harington will once again don the black, wield a sword and come to terms with an incredible lineage that could either destroy the world or save it. Despite the many similarities between Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow and Marvel’s Black Knight, I expect Harington to bring a new presence to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Whitman. While some were confounded over the decision to cast such a recognizable actor as a character unfamiliar to general audiences, not helped by speculation a day earlier suggesting he’d be playing Wolverine, Black Knight shouldn’t be underestimated. As a member and onetime leader of the Avengers, and one of the best combat fighters alongside Steve Rogers and Logan, Black Knight has deep ties to almost every corner of the Marvel Universe. He, along with the Eternals, may be something of an enigma right now, but there’s a strong chance that he will emerge as one of the breakout characters in the MCU going forward.

The history of the Black Knight in the Marvel Universe is a complicated one, but equally rewarding because of that factor. Dane Whitman isn’t Marvel’s first Black Knight. He’s not even the second. He’s part of a long line of men tasked with possessing the Ebony Blade. The first Black Knight, Sir Percy, predated Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee and Joe Maneely in 1955 for Atlas Comics, the five-issue Black Knight comic was a medieval adventure series centered on a knight of King Arthur’s court in the 6th century. Sir Percy wielded the Ebony Blade, forged by Merlin from a meteorite, against Mordred the evil, until his death at the Fall of Camelot. The second Black Knight, Professor Nathan Garrett, created by Lee and Dick Ayers, first appeared in Tales to Astonish No. 52 in 1964. A descendant of Sir Percy, Garrett sought out the Ebony Blade but the sword found him unworthy. He then chose to create his own weapons, a technologically advanced medieval arsenal that he used to battle Giant-Man and the Wasp, Iron Man and eventually the Avengers as one of Zemo’s Masters of Evil. Before succumbing to his wounds after a battle with Iron Man, Garrett entrusted his nephew to restore honor to the family and prove himself worthy of the Ebony Blade. [Source]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe may be losing Spider-Man, but they are gaining the (former) King of the North. Fresh off the final season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow actor Kit Harington is set to star in The Eternals, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced at Disney’s D23 Conference.

Marvel is entering “Phase Four” of its cinematic universe, after Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the storylines of some of the franchise’s most recognizable heroes. New superheroes will have to replace the likes of Iron Man and Captain America as the leaders of Marvel’s super-team. Plus, Marvel is reportedly losing the rights to use Spider-Man in future films, which means the studio will be even more eager for recognizable faces to usher fans into their new era of films. Harington fits the bill.

The star-studded Eternals features Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjani, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry and Harington’s fellow Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden as an immortal race called the Eternals. (Madden played one of Jon Snow’s doomed brothers, Robb Stark.) Harington will play a non-Eternal character according to Feige, which means he could be the film’s villain.

Harington will be well-prepared to join a massive movie franchise. After all, he just spent the last decade as the star of the world’s biggest TV series. [Source]

Emilia Clarke wasn’t the only Game of Thrones cast member who had strong feelings about her character Daenerys being killed in the final episode by her lover Jon Snow, who put a knife in her heart while embracing her. Kit Harington spoke to Entertainment Weekly as well about where Jon’s mind was in his final scene with Dany and why he thinks that Game of Thrones isn’t sexist in the way it treated Daenerys and Cersei in its last two episodes.

Clarke and Harington revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Harington hadn’t read the final episode’s script before the cast’s table read. When the moment Jon killed Dany came up, “I looked at Emilia and there was a moment of me realizing, ‘No, no…’” Harington said, and Clarke nodding back sadly ‘yes.’

“He was crying,” Clarke said. “And then it was kind of great him not having read it.”

Harington said this wasn’t a happy ending for Jon; it was a tragedy. “This is the second woman he’s fallen in love with who dies in his arms and he cradles her in the same way,” Harington said. “That’s an awful thing. In some ways, Jon did the same thing to [his Wilding lover] Ygritte by training the boy who kills her. This destroys Jon to do this.”

Harington knew some people wouldn’t be happy with the show’s final episode and Dany’s fate. “I think it’s going to divide,” he said. “But if you track her story all the way back, she does some terrible things. She crucifies people. She burns people alive. This has been building. So, we have to say to the audience: ’You’re in denial about this woman as well. You knew something was wrong. You’re culpable, you cheered her on.’”

He also doesn’t believe the show was sexist, killing off two of its strongest women. “One of my worries with this is we have Cersei and Dany, two leading women, who fall,” he said. “The justification is: Just because they’re women, why should they be the goodies? They’re the most interesting characters in the show. And that’s what Thrones has always done. You can’t just say the strong women are going to end up the good people. Dany is not a good person. It’s going to open up discussion but there’s nothing done in this show that isn’t truthful to the characters. And when have you ever seen a woman play a dictator?” [Source]

The Game of Thrones star talks life after the show’s final season and opens up about his Dolce & Gabbana campaign.

Kit Harington needs to charge his Juul. “I used to be a huge smoker, so this now is my lifeline,” he explains, holding the e-cigarette as we get situated before our interview. I can’t help but laugh at the image of Jon Snow puffing clouds of mango vapor in full armor and fur, but Harington clarifies that he was mostly smoking cigarettes during his time on Game of Thrones. Thanks to #VapeLife, he “weaned off.”

Unlike his smoking habit, saying goodbye to Thrones, in which Harington has starred since 2011, felt less like weaning and more like, as he’s said, peeling off his skin. “It’s a brutal experience, especially after nine years,” the 32-year-old actor says, leaning over the edge of a lounge chair in a white tee, blue slacks, and sneakers. Occasionally, he removes his wedding band from his finger and plays with it.

After nearly a decade in the role of brooding war hero Jon Snow, Harington is eager to take lighter parts in the future. He’s already shown he’s ready for a change when he hosted Saturday Night Live beardless (the photos sent fans into an uproar) and took on wild characters like a burlesque dancer and an undercover boss getting a rectal exam.

Though Harington didn’t take anything from the Game of Thrones set except a pair of Jon Snow’s gloves (he argues he isn’t cool enough to get a commemorative tattoo), he has much more to show from the experience than props. He met his wife, Rose Leslie, when they co-starred in earlier seasons, and he’s forged lasting friendships with cast mates like Emilia Clarke, who portrays his onscreen lover/aunt/possible competitor, Daenerys Targaryen. “I just got an incredible amount of admiration for her,” he says.

When we meet at the end of March, it’s still weeks before GoT fans would see Jon ride a dragon, discover his true parents, and watch Daenerys burn King’s Landing to the ground. He’s wary of sharing potential plot points—he won’t even comment on scenes in the trailer, even though they’re eventually confirmed in the first few episodes of Season 8. Harington doesn’t, however, shy away from promoting his gig as the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s men’s fragrance, The One. Like Clarke, he’s been an ambassador for the Italian brand since 2017. The actor is a strong believer in wearing a scent—when he’s not on set. “I think you should carry it around with you all the time,” he says.

Ahead, the actor talks to BAZAAR.com about representing Dolce & Gabbana, the epic battle sequences in Season 8, and what’s next for him.

‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington says the fourth episode of the eighth and final season of the HBO series is one of his personal favourites.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays the fan favourite Jon Snow in the epic fantasy show, said the latest chapter is very Shakespearean as it has certain “twisted and uncomfortable” elements in it.

“One of my favourite episodes is four because the characters have seemingly got what they needed. The world is safe now. They’re celebrating and saying goodbye to lost friends.

“But as an audience you’re going, ‘This is only episode four, something’s going to happen.’ And that’s the cool thing because I think the characters are aware of this as well. There’s something twisted and uncomfortable about it. It’s so Shakespearean,” Harington told Entertainment Weekly.

Earlier, Emilia Clarke had said that people need to prepare for episode five as it would perhaps be bigger than the Battle of Winterfell last week.

“(The next episodes) are going to be mental. Episode five is bigger. Episode five is ahhhh. I mean four and five and six, they’re all insane, but…” Clarke told Jimmy Kimmel on his chat show. [Source]

We can tell you what Kit Harington smells like: Tobacco, with a spicy blend of cardamom, ginger, cedarwood, and citrus spice accord. That’s because he’s the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s fragrance, The One for Men. And Harington can tell you what Jon Snow, his beloved character on Game of Thrones smells like—but no, he won’t share anything else about his character’s fate before the show comes to an end. He will, however, tell us about his failed attempt as a perfumer and fragrance philosophy, though, so read on.

What have you learned about fragrance and grooming from working with Dolce & Gabbana? I’ve certainly gotten a better sense of style from doing it. That’s one of the great things about a campaign like this—if it’s a brand you like, it encourages you to try dressing in ways you might haven’t before. But my grooming regime is as simple as I can make it.

What is that? One thing I might have been forced to do in these campaigns is take a bit better care of myself. (laughs)

Does that mean washing your face and putting on moisturizer? Yeah, face wash is something I didn’t discover until now.

What do you like about The One? Where I live, it’s all wood paneled, wood beams—it’s an old house. My favorite thing about the scent is it has a wooden, masculine feel to it, but sophisticated, and it’s how I imagine I would like to come across.

What are your favorite scents? Wood fires. I like the smell of an old car, when you get a vintage car, that old musky petrol type of smell. The English countryside has a smell unlike anywhere else, a kind of slightly damp, fresh smell and that’s kind of me. Tobacco which I love, because I used to be a smoker and now I’m not. The smell of cigarettes I just love.

Do certain scents remind you of your childhood? Yeah mum’s roses. Now I’m lucky enough that I’ve got a rose garden as well and it’s one of the things I love. I remember one of my earliest memories to do with perfumes was trying to make my mum a perfume out of her roses. While she was away I picked all her roses and crushed them up with some water, and I look back now and I remember her face and I was thinking ‘why doesn’t she look as pleased as she should be?’ I destroyed her rose bush.

Did she wear it? I think she pretended. She was a good mum and she probably cursed me behind my back.
