Kit Harington reveals he is both excited and terrified to join the MCU with The Eternals.

Kit Harington made a recent appearance at ACE Comic Con and was flooded with questions related to both Game of Thrones as well as The Eternals. On one hand, Kit had to say a bittersweet goodbye to his character Jon Snow, who he has been playing for a decade as GoT reached its end in May 2019. On the other hand, Harington will be joining his Game of Thrones brother, Richard Madden as the duo embark on a new universe, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) with The Eternals.

While tackling questions at ACE Comic Con, the actor got candid about why he is both excited and terrified to join the MCU, and it has to do with GoT. "A lot of people who go into something like the MCU, they haven't had experience of, maybe, a franchise that big. I've lived with Thrones for ten years, I've known a big franchise and something that's created a world and it has a huge fan base. So for both reasons, I'm excited and terrified," Kit confessed.

Furthermore, the 32-year-old actor shared that he knows the responsibility of playing a beloved character, like on Thrones, and the responsibility he had to make something special out of said character. Thanks to Game of Thrones, Harington is prepared to be a part of the MCU but because he has been a part of one universe, he is also terrified.

"This is the first time I've met people on that level about Marvel and I'm just thrilled. It's a whole new chapter and a whole new character to start thinking about. Without saying too much at all, on the surface, [Dane Whitman aka Black Knight] can look like Jon Snow in the comics but there is actually a lot to be done that is different," Kit teased.
