Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington is reportedly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Harrington, who played Jon Snow in the HBO show, is said to be joining one of Marvel and producer Kevin Feige's superhero movies, Deadline reports.

According to Deadline there was talk of the casting at the Disney's D23 Expo over the weekend in California.

It's not yet known what movie that could be, but there's speculation it could be either Black Widow or The Eternals, which already has Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden in the cast.

It might be a bit too late for Harrington to join the cast in Black Widow as it has already started filming.

Harington doesn't have any upcoming roles listed on his IMDB page. His most recent credits are in Game of Thrones and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
