The Marvel Cinematic Universe may be losing Spider-Man, but they are gaining the (former) King of the North. Fresh off the final season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow actor Kit Harington is reportedly set to star in an upcoming Marvel movie, according to Deadline.
Disney, which owns Marvel Studios, is expected to announce the news and exactly which movie or TV show Harington will appear in at their D23 conference on Saturday.
Kit Harington as Jon SnowMarvel is entering Phase Four of its cinematic universe, after Avengers Endgame wrapped up the storylines of some of the franchise’s most recognizable heroes. New superheroes will have to replace the likes of Iron Man and Captain America as the leaders of Marvel’s super-team. Plus, Marvel is reportedly losing the rights to use Spider-Man in future films, which means the studio will be even more eager for recognizable faces to usher fans into their new era of films. Harington fits the bill.
