The moment that we found out Kit Harington will play Dane Whitmore, many of us believed that we could see the Black Knight join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Surprisingly, he hasn’t had a large role in any of the trailers and mainly seemed to fall into the background. He also seems to primarily be the love interest for Sersi in the modern-day rather than a knight from the past. Still, we had some hope that he’ll wield the Ebony Blade at some point in the story. Yet, producer Nate Moore confirmed he won’t be wielding the blade in the film but it’ll act as a set-up for the future.
You won’t see the Ebony Blade in this movie. He’s not going to be Black Knight necessarily, but that is something that we get to play with down the roadNate Moore
Sadly, it seems we’ll have to wait a bit longer until the Black Knight joins the franchise. Harington is quite the name for a small role in this film. So, we can expect a lot more of him in the future. He seems like a likely candidate to get his own Disney+ spinoff at some point, but we’ll see how his role unfolds in the film when it drops in early November. There’s also the ring that connects the character to his past with a raven insignia on his ring, as revealed through merchandise. They are planting the seeds.
