Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, made this announcement at Disney's D23 Expo in California on Saturday, that the GoT star will play Dane Whitman in the upcoming MCU film.
The Eternals is one of the five MCU phase four films. The others are Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder.
Feige also confirmed Gemma Chan’s appearance in the film as Sersi.
Stark brothers, Robb and Jon, will finally be reunited. Who knew when Robb said to Jon, 'Next time I see you, you'll be all in black', this was going to happen?
