Game Of Thrones Predicted Kit Harington's New Role In The MCU All The Way Back In Season One

Um, spoiler alert!

It turns out that Kit Harington’s casting in The Eternals as Black Knight was predicted all the way back in Game of Thrones season one.

The casting news was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo and the movie will see a GoT reunion for Harington and Richard Madden who will play Ikaris in the film.

Madden played Robb Stark, Jon Snow’s half-brother (but in reality, they ended up being cousins), on the show, but the pair only got to share the screen in the first couple of episodes.

In ‘The Kingsroad’, the second episode of GoT season one, Jon and Robb say goodbye to each other as Jon heads for the Wall to join the Night’s Watch.

Robb tells him, “Next time I see you, you’ll be all in black.” Jon responds, “It was always my colour.”

Unfortunately (spoiler alert), they were never reunited because Jon went beyond the Wall and Robb was killed at the Red Wedding.

However, the pair will finally get that chance when they join the MCU in The Eternals as they’re both playing prominent characters in the movie so will likely be sharing the screen at some point.

And because Harington is playing Dane Whitman, AKA Black Knight, the next time Madden sees him on camera he’ll be wearing all black.

While it’s not exactly the Jon and Robb reunion we always wanted, we’ll take what we can get.

At this stage, it isn’t exactly clear how Black Knight fits into the movie as he’s not an Eternal. Dane has previously teamed up with the Avengers and the Defenders in the comics, so perhaps he’ll spin-off into other Marvel films after The Eternals.

The movie is set for release in November 2020.

Avengers: Endgame Writer Believes Peggy Carter's Unseen Husband Was Always Steve Rogers

"Steve is part of a strange, unique time-loop."

Avengers: Endgame closed Steve Rogers’ story in the best possible way, by allowing him to go back in time and live out his days with the love of his life Peggy Carter.

When Captain America was tasked with putting the Infinity Stones back in their respective places in the timeline, he used some of the Pym Particles he stole from the 1970s to go back in time once more to be with Peggy. He then returned as Old Steve and hands over his shield to the new Captain America, Sam Wilson.

Fans have questioned the move due to the confusing laws of time travel, however, one of the movie’s writers, Stephan McFeely, has revealed his thoughts on the matter.

Speaking with, McFeely referenced Captain America: Winter Soldier, where we see photos of Peggy’s two children and her husband is mentioned but never named.

“It depends on what story Marvel wants to tell going forward. I don’t know if Marvel wants to tell any more Captain America stories or if Chris (Evans) is up for it.

“Do they want to tell an alternate timeline story? Chris and I are partial to the idea that Steve is part of a strange, unique time-loop where he has always been there.

“The husband that you very purposefully did not see at Peggy’s bedside in Winter Soldier is Chris’ Steve. We have always thought that he was her husband. The movies you have been watching follow a line where he always goes back.

“To be fair, not everyone agrees with us. I don’t even know if Marvel agrees with us. But that’s what we think.”

While it would be cool to see more Captain America stories with Chris Evans, it’s highly unlikely the actor would return for another outing as Cap.

What is certain, however, is that the ending given to Steve Rogers was perfect, despite being bittersweet for fans.
