Jeremy Slater, lead writer behind Marvel Studios’ Disney+ Limited Series moon knightHe says that at one point, Kit Harington reprized his role as Dine Whitman from the movie 2021 eternity It was on the table. However, this cross pattern was not meant to be.
In an interview with ComicBook.comSlater explained that Dane Whitman was a natural fit for moon knight, see how he and Stephen Grant (Oscar Isaac), one of the Mark Spector/Moon Knight variants, work at Museums in London. However, if Dane appears in moon knightSlater wanted to turn him into his alter ego in his Black Knight comic book – something there simply wasn’t room to do.
“We only talked about Dane Whitman a little bit because he works in a history museum and that might be a natural interaction,” Slater said. “My feeling was that we made Kit Harington appear undressed and not kicking his ass, as a fan I resented.”
The writer explained, “If I see him appear, I want to see him go all the way to the Black Knight. Just seeing an interaction where he walks past and goes ‘Oh, Steven,’ which replies ‘Oh, Professor Whitman!'” “I felt like this would be a waste of the money Kit Harington would cost there.”
Slater also explained that “there is a lot you can do to harass those who reveal before people get frustrated.” “There was no place in the first two episodes to have him wear a suit and play the Black Knight in the story, so we ultimately decided it didn’t make sense to make that association,” he concluded. “But it was something we definitely talked about in the room for two days.”
