Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman almost made an appearance in Marvel’s Moon Knight



Kit Harington on crossing paths with Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke in MCU

One of the more recent entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ever-expanding roster, the Eternals, garnered mixed reviews from the critics, but has been liked overall by the audience. the film featured two famous Game of Thrones stars, Kit Harington and Richard Madden, who played Dane Whitman and Ikaris respectively. While Madden’s Ikaris was seen taking a nice warm sunbath directly into the surface of the sun and presumably dying of extreme guilt over his actions, Harington’s Whitman is still alive and kicking. However, not much is known about the path he’s going to partake in MCU’s future, and neither does Kit Harington. What we do know is that there was a chance that his character was slated to make a cameo in another Marvel project, the Moon Knight.

In a recent interview with Comicbook, series head writer Jeremy Slater revealed Harington’s Dane Whitman, also known as the Black Knight, nearly appeared in the Disney+ series. He said, “We talked about Dane Whitman a little bit just because he works in a history museum and that could be a natural interaction. My feeling was if we got Kit Harington to show up and he doesn’t suit up and he doesn’t kick ass, as a fan I’m pissed off.”

He continued, “There was no space in those first two episodes to have him suit up and play Black Knight in the storyline, so we ultimately decided that it didn’t make sense to make this connection. But it was something we definitely talked about a couple of days in the room.”
