Kit Harington Might Be Heading To The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Kit Harington Might Be Heading To The Marvel Cinematic Universe

There's been a bunch of rumours and speculation about where Kevin Feige and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will go next, following the dramatic conclusion of Avengers: Endgame. Now the latest name to join the list is non-other than Game of Thrones' very own Jon Snow - Kit Harington.

According to Deadline, a source close to the British actor has said his next movie will be a Marvel title. Exciting, eh?

This weekend sees D23 Expo taking place in Anaheim, California, where Disney and Marvel will be showing off their future plans. So, if Harington is about to join the MCU it would be the perfect time to make the formal announcement.

If he does don a cape in an upcoming Marvel flick, it'll be the first big role for the star since Game of Thrones ended earlier this year and will give Harington a chance to break away from Jon Snow and flex his acting skills.

As the rumour was shared online fans of Marvel and Game of Thrones rushed to social media to speculate about who Harington might be playing - with some suggesting he would be 'the perfect Wolverine'

While other took the opportunity to poke at old wounds by pointing out that he can definitely be ruled out as Spider-Man. Too soon, guys. Too soon.

Sony and Marvel has seemingly fell out in recent weeks, with a Sony spokesperson said: "Much of today's news about Spider-Man has mischaracterised recent discussions about Kevin Feige's involvement in the franchise,

"We are disappointed, but respect Disney's decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film."

The recent announcement that Spider-Man was leaving the MCU angered fans... and I when I say angered, I mean there were threats to storm the Sony offices to demand Spidey's return.

In a Facebook group made to publicise the 'event', the creators wrote: : "We storm Sony Pictures in solidarity dressed in Spider-Man costumes and bring our boy home!"

They then added: "This is a peaceful demonstration and violence will not be tolerated."

So that's good.
