MCU’s Eternals ended with the possibility of Dane Whitman played by Kit Harington returning to the screen in the future. And for a while, there has been a rumor that the actor might be in MCU’s 2025 project Blade as the Black Knight. But it does not seem to be so as Harington recently addressed the rumor.

While he did express his wish for the studio to explore the character more in future projects, as far as it is known, Whitman or The Black Knight has very little chance to be appearing in Blade. However, it does not mean that the character won’t be coming back at all.

When considering the possibility of the Marvel character Dave Whitman’s return, there seem to be various opportunities. First of all, the sequel for Eternals (2021) seems to have the highest chance of having Kit Harington return as the character. In the film’s post-credit scene, Whitman was seen opening a box containing the black sword. This most probably means that Whitman is going to take up the mantle of the Black Knight.

However, as of now, there has been no confirmation on Eternals 2 by MCU. Apart from that, the character almost could appear in MCU’s Moon Knight. But eventually, things did not end up as such.
