According to our insider sources, we are hearing Kit Harington’s Black Knight character will be spun off from The Eternals into his own franchise.
In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Kevin Feige had this to say about Kit Harington and his role as the Black Knight:
“He’s a really amazing actor, and this part came up in The Eternals film that we’re doing, We were so happy when he agreed to join, and it is a part that could perhaps grow into something else in the future.”
Well, we are now hearing which of the projects Marvel Studios is talking about and it’s one of Feige’s favorite comic book runs.
Excalibur has been in development by Marvel Studios as a refreshing take on the X-Men. Based on the Chris Claremont/Alan Davis series, the movies will feature the Black Knight with Shadowcat, Captain Britain, Psylocke, and Nightcrawler.
The tone will be completely different than any other MCU series, influenced by Doctor Who, Time Bandits, and even Monty Python.
