The Eternals Join The MCU
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe enters its Phase 4, a new set of heroes is being ushered in: The Eternals. Telling the story of a race of immortals who use their superpowers to change the course of history, Eternals features an all star cast including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington.
Salma Hayek Is A 'Game Of Thrones' Super Fan
According to her Instagram, Salma Hayek, who will be playing the team leader Ajak, is a massive Game of Thrones fan, geeking out about her costar Harington, Jon Snow himself.
"I still can't believe that I'm working with #jonsnow! Kit you're the best!!! Todavía no puedo creer que estoy trabajando con Jon Snow!!! #theeternals #gameofthrones #kitharington"
Harington is playing the human Dane Whitman/Black Knight who has a romantic relationship with the Eternal Sersi, played by Gemma Chan, in the comics.
Not The Only 'Game Of Thrones' Connection
Harington isn't the only Game of Thrones connection to Eternals. Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark for the first three seasons, will be playing the Eternal Ikaris as well. Starks back together again!
