The solid of Marvel’s Eternals simply retains on including star energy. This weekend, at Disney’s D23 Expo, it was introduced that each Kit Harington and Gemma Chan could be becoming a member of the solid.
News of Harington’s reported involvement within the MCU broke earlier than the official announcement, prompting followers to invest about each risk, together with the potential re-casting of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine within the wake of the Disney/Fox merge. Similarly, the information that Chan was being courted for the project broke earlier this month, main followers to surprise how this new position would have an effect on her Captain Marvel involvement.
In Harington’s case, the reality turned out to be a lot easier than the fantasy that theorizing created. He will play Dane Whitman, aka Black Knight, a superhero who–this is just not a joke–dresses like a medieval knight and rides round on a pegasus-like flying horse (possibly he and Valkyrie can have one thing to speak about?)
Things for Chan are a bit extra sophisticated. She will not be reprising her Captain Marvel position because the Kree soldier Minn-Erva, and as an alternative, be re-cast because the trickster Eternal Sersi. This is a uncommon case of an actor enjoying two totally different characters within the MCU–and possible means we cannot be seeing Minn-Erva round in future Captain Marvel instalments.
Though, apparently, Sersi’s superpowers do revolve round matter manipulation and shapeshifting, which may doubtlessly make for a really fascinating in-universe loophole to elucidate how and why Chan could possibly be two unrelated characters directly. Perhaps the Minn-Erva we briefly noticed again within the 90s wasn’t really Minn-Erva in any respect.
The Eternals hits theaters on November 6, 2020.
