It must be said that it was coming, but there is always some hope that there will be surprises. Dane Whitman is in Eternals, played by the famous Game of Thrones actor Kit Harignton, but it seems that we will not see him become his alter ego, the Black Knight.
As revealed by producer Nate Moore during an interview that took place at the time when the media were able to visit the shoot, but which was published yesterday, we will not see neither the Black Knight nor the Ebon Sword of him. At least not in this movie.
We think he’s interesting and he’s a great character, and actually Kit Harington, who just finished filming yesterday, was fantastic, but what we do is explore the relationship between Dane Whitman and Sersi, which again is something for the readers. of comics. You will not see the Ebon Blade in this movie. He’s not necessarily going to be the Black Knight, but that’s something we can play with later.
‘Eternals’: everything we know about the Marvel movie directed by Chloé Zhao
‘Eternals’ is one of the upcoming Marvel films, a priori perhaps the most important of Phase 4 of the MCU for serving as a gateway for a new group of superheroes created by Jack Kirby that is run by director Chloé Zhao with a cast led, among others, by Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek and Kit Harington.
The filming of ‘Eternals’ ended in February 2020 after taking place in different places in the United Kingdom. The post-production work on this superhero movie was somewhat complicated due to the coronavirus pandemic, but otherwise it has been able to be completed without major shocks.
The Eternals are characters created by Jack Kirby in 1976 for Marvel. Its origin dates back to the beginning of life on Earth. Then the Celestials visited our planet, an alien race that was sowing life in multiple places in the galaxy.
In their passage through the Earth they proceeded to experiment with the hominids before man, from which emerged the humans, the Eternals and the Deviants. The latter two have incredible powers, but the latter multiplied and wreaked havoc until the Eternals, who are immortal, entered the scene somewhat as protectors of human beings.
That led to them being considered little less than Gods, since they are superior to practically any other living being. Of course, the Deviants took refuge in the kingdom of Lemuria and from time to time threaten to wreak havoc again.
Marvel has not given many details about the story that the script written by Ryan and Kaz Zirpo will tell us beyond that The Eternals will have to face a common front to face The Deviants, their evil equivalents that threaten to end humanity.
Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Gemma Chan, Barry Keoghan and Kit Harington head the cast of ‘Eternals’. All of them give life to Eternals with the exception of Harintgon, who takes the role of Dane Whitman, a human warrior who is in possession of a mystical sword and who in the comics becomes the superhero Black Knight.
For his part, Jolie will be Thena, a fierce war, Madden will be Ikaria, an eternal almighty considered the shadow leader of the group, Hayek will be Ajak, spiritual leader of the group and who in the comics is in charge of communication with the Celestials, while Najiani will be Kingo, an eternal with cosmic powers who has been defined as a mix between John McClane and a Bollywood star.
In addition, Henry will get into the shoes of Phastos, an eternal with great skills for invention who will be the first gay superhero of the MCU -his partner in fiction will have the face of Hiaaz Sleiman-, Ridloff will be Makkari, an eternal with super speed, McHugh will be Sprite, an eternal that does not age, Lee the powerful eternal Gligamesh, Chan will be Sersi and Keoghan Druig.
