Rising to fame after his role in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Kit Harington signed on to star in a superhero production, much like his castmates. He played Dane Whitman in the Eternals alongside Richard Madden as Ikaris and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

Despite his fame, the actor didn’t have much screentime in the film, being only the love interest of Gemma Chan’s Sersi. Though, at the end of the film, the actor was seen in the possession of a sword called Ebony Blade.

Before Dane Whitman could pick up the sword, he was interrupted by the voice cameo of Mahershala Ali’s Blade. This hopefully sets up Dane Whitman’s return to MCU in the Blade film, but what about the sword?

The wielder of the Ebony Blade is granted the powers of the Black Knight. Even though shrouded in mystery, we do know that the Eternals were aware of the sword’s presence and it will probably play a bigger role in future MCU projects.

Despite the interesting set-up MCU has not announced any upcoming standalone film for the character or confirmed his presence in any other Marvel production, perplexing many fans.

Do you know nothing, Kit Harington?

Marvel is notorious for having a tight lid on the plot and cameos in their production, and the role of Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman seems the same. In an interview with Josh Horowitz, the actor stated he doesn’t know the direction Marvel will be taking with his character. He said:

“I don’t know much of what they’re planning… I hope to be involved in future stuff, with that character, with Dane Whitman, and that he might go on and be the thing that everyone quotes at me in the street.”

The actor further asserted that Marvel doesn’t tell him much of what they plan. He believes this is a good thing as actors tend to “spill the beans” in interviews like this. Even if the actor is aware of his character’s future, he’s doing a good job hiding it.
