While D23 trudges on this weekend, a new rumor from Deadline suggests that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is looking to cast Game of Thrones star Kit Harington in a role within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There have yet to be any hints as to what role Feige is looking to cast Harington in, however with the upcoming slate of Marvel films, there are tons of opportunities for Harington to find the perfect role.
Deadline, who broke the news, said,
“Deadline hears it is to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he will make his next film. Sources said that Harington will join one of Marvel and Kevin Feige’s superhero franchises. All of Marvel and Disney is busy with the D23 Expo this weekend in Anaheim. I was unable to figure out which film, and nobody was around to elaborate, which they probably wouldn’t anyway. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if some of those details are filled in before the weekend is out. Stay tuned.”
With D23 underway, there is a chance that Harington and Feige have already come to an agreement on a role, and there will be an announcement this weekend. This, however, is only speculation.
