Marvel Studios blew our socks off this weekend at the D23 Expo when it was announced that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington would be playing Dane Whitman/Black Knight in the upcoming Phase 4 film The Eternals.

And the good news doesn't stop there.

ComicBook.com reports that when Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stopped by Good Morning America, he revealed that Harington’s involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe could just be getting started. “We were so happy when [Harington] agreed to join, and it is a part that could perhaps grow into something else in the future,” he shared.

Harington isn’t the only GoT star to be jumping from one cultural phenomenon to the next. His former co-star and on-screen half-brother (well…cousin), Richard Madden, will also be joining the project.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the boys on screen together once again. Here's to hoping it won't be their last Marvel outing!
