Fair or not, Chloe Zhao’s “Eternals” is seen as the film that first showed a real chink in Marvel Studios armor – domestically it was the lowest-grossing film of the MCU pandemic movies and it still sits as the second worst-reviewed Marvel film to date.

Despite its rather public failure, there’s been plenty of rumors regarding a possible sequel or continuation of some key characters in other projects.

One person who has been the subject of such speculation is former “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington who starred in the film as Dane Whitman – a character who eventually becomes the hero The Black Knight.

Out promoting his new film “Blood for Dust,” Harington tells The Playlist that as far as he’s aware, all that talk is completely unsubstantiated as there’s nothing going on with the character:

“I have always been intrigued by that character, and it’s one of the main reasons I came into ‘The Eternals’ the character. For anyone who knows the Black Knight, his descent because of his superpower – I think it’s a brilliant allegory about addiction and things, and I think it’s a really cool character and a really cool story that they haven’t mined yet. But I don’t know whether they will. Like, honestly, I’ve heard nothing about any sort of plans. And I know they would always keep their plans close to their chest. But at the moment, again, on that front, nothing going on.”

Asked if he’d prefer to reprise the character in either a series or a movie, Harington says he’d be more than happy to come back:

“I don’t know, to be honest. I wouldn’t know until I got shown what the plan was, if there was a plan. So I think it’s a sort of strange, murky area now, TV and film. I don’t know. But both could be the right thing or the wrong thing. But I think that the character is there and the story is there to do something really interesting with.”

The comments follow in the wake of Harington previously confirming the “Game of Thrones” Jon Snow spin-off series previously in development at HBO is now dead.
