Yesterday, we learned Game of Thrones star Kit Harington was signing on to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a mystery role, and as of today's Marvel presentation at D23, the mystery is over! At D23, Marvel's Kevin Feige confirmed the report by introducing Harington as the latest cast member of Eternals. He is the third character in the Marvel comic books to become the superhero Black Knight.

Black Knight has always been rumored to be a part of the MCU's next phase. Dane Whitman himself is not an Eternal, but is often romantically linked wither the Eternal Sersi, who will be played in the movie by Gemma Chan. Unlike her fellow immortals, Sersi lives among humans and doesn't isolate herself. The studio is also developing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Blade and new Fantastic Four and X-Men movies for Phase 5 and beyond. Kumail Nanjiani co-stars as Kingo, with Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, and Don Lee as Gilgamesh. Dunkirk's Barry Keoghan was also added to the cast as a character named Druid.

Disturbance on Florida's doorstep has 90% chance of development
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system on Saturday, if necessary. Strap in for a wet weekend, thanks to a tropical disturbance heading toward South Florida from the Bahamas.

Marvel's Eternals will hit theaters on November 6, 2020. And if you're thinking that casting Harington as a sword-wielding, honor-bound hero who wears a lot of black sounds like typecasting...well, yeah, it does seem pretty on the nose. Let us know in the comment section below!
