First Look At Kit Harington In Marvel's 'Eternals'

A batch of new set images and video from Marvel's Eternals offers a first look at Kit Harington as well as shows off some of the characters using their superpowers.

Kit Harington plays Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight, who in the comics is a former villain who joins the Avengers and has a history with Sersi, being played by Gemma Chan, who can also be seen in the set images and video.

The set pics reveal Kit Harington walking side-by-side Gemma Chan, with video showing Chan's Sersi flying in the air.

In the comics, Dane Whitman has no superpowers, but when he becomes the lifemate of the Eternal Sersi, his strength, speed, and other physical abilities are mildly enhanced and he also gains a mystical ability to see through mystical illusions by looking "past the mundane." The Black Knight is also a stellar fighter and can keep up with the likes of Captain America and even Wolverine, with Whitman pretty smart as well as he has a Masters in physics. Per being the Black Knight, Whitman also has sported various swords including the Ebony Blade, an indestructible mystical blade capable of cutting near anything, and the Neural sword, more of a laser beam that cuts through non-living matter.

Regarding Sersi's powers, as an Eternal, Sersi is capable of psionic and transmutational abilities, has gifted intellect, superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes, and as teased by the set video below, can levitate herself and others, and she can also fly at superhuman speed.
