(Update) Kit Harington to join the MCU in an unspecified role

[Update: Reports from the D23 floor are saying that Harington will be playing Dane Whitman in The Eternals. Whitman is otherwise known as Black Knight.]

With D23 only having just begun, we’re about to be inundated with a ton of Marvel and MCU information. As Deadline reports, it turns out popular actor Kit Harington (known for his turn on Game of Thrones) will be joining Marvel’s interconnected universe in some unspecified capacity. Whether he’s gearing up to be a hero or villain is yet to be seen, but he’ll be lending his mopey, unshaven face to some character in the future.

One look at Twitter (which you shouldn’t do) and it seems people are eager to have Harington enter the fray as Wolverine. I’m not sure I see the relation, though I guess he is just as hairy as Logan. I feel the star would be better as Moon Knight, who just so happens to be getting his own series. Maybe that’s the surprise link we’re overlooking?
