In the end credits scene of the Eternals, fans got the first tease of Dane Whitman’s transformation into the Black Knight as Kit Harington heard a voice from behind if he is ready to take on the Ebony Sword, his character’s signature weapon from Marvel comics. The voice has been revealed to be that of Blade, Marvel’s daywalker superhero. Harington has finally opened up about the scene in an interview with Variety. He said:

“I knew the line that was being said, because it was said out loud and it was in the bit of script that I got. I only knew that was Mahershala’s voice just about three weeks ago. Chloé texted me saying that’s what they were doing. It really excited me, hearing that. He’s one of my favorite actors out there at the moment.”

He added, “Up until that point, all we’ve seen is a really good guy that we hopefully like. I like the idea that this thing is not good for him. With that sword, and what I’ve read about it, what I wanted to capture in that moment was this idea of addiction. I had some inkling that there was going to be a kind of crossover there, from early conversations. I don’t know what the future is, and I have no idea. There’s nothing written. Nothing I’ve been told. I haven’t got a clue. Honestly, genuinely. It’s funny, isn’t it? You say these things, and people are like, ‘You do! You know!’ And I have no idea. I’m assuming that that would be the case. But who knows?”
