Kit Harington is moving from one major franchise to another.

Just a few months after saying goodbye to his famous character Jon Snow, the Game of Thrones actor will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Several media outlets are reporting the news, even though no film or role has been announced as yet.

Marvel recently wrapped up the third phase of its Marvel Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Endgame, bringing to a conclusion the Infinity Saga.

The studio is now set to focus on new projects which include The Eternals starring Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden, as well as the Black Widow solo film.

However, as announced last week, Marvel and Sony Pictures failed to reach a profit-sharing agreement which would see Spider-Man stick around in the MCU.
