A Year Before Eternals Casting, Kit Harington Met With Marvel

Kevin Feige met with Kit Harington a year before he was cast in Eternals because Marvel was so keen on working with him.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand on both television and the big screen, and Chloé Zhao’s Eternals is the newest project to emerge from the enormous franchise.

The film, which is set to hit theatres next week, follows the titular group of cosmic creatures both in the past and present when they first arrived on Earth.

The Eternals have spent thousands of years living in the shadows, tasked with defending humanity from the Deviants.

Eternals features a strong ensemble that includes Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, among others.

Almost every casting announcement in the MCU generates excitement at this point, but Harington’s return in 2019 was undoubtedly one of the most awaited of the year.
