Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has been on a career rollercoaster since HBO’s acclaimed fantasy drama headed into its final season. Now, whispers from outside the 2019 D23 Expo are pointing to Kit Harington soon joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
In a casting rumor dropped by Deadline, it’s being stated that Marvel’s Kevin Feige is courting Kit Harington for a role in the MCU – though no specific details on what that role is, or what project Harington could star in, are being shared at this time.
Here’s what we do know, a per Deadline reporter Mike Fleming:
“Deadline hears it is to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he will make his next film. Sources said that Harington will join one of Marvel and Kevin Feige’s superhero franchises. All of Marvel and Disney is busy with the D23 Expo this weekend in Anaheim. I was unable to figure out which film, and nobody was around to elaborate, which they probably wouldn’t anyway. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if some of those details are filled in before the weekend is out. Stay tuned.”
With D23 currently taking place, there are a lot of potential new announcements that could include revealing Harington’s MCU involvement. As for where the actor might actually show up in the franchise? That’s anyone’s guess at this point.
