Well, that didn’t take long at all. As the entertainment industry starts to get the kinks out and get back on their feet, thanks to the absolute shutdown from the global pandemic, the rumor mongers are right back at it as well. Coming out of their caves, chomping at the bits, these ‘insiders’ are already busy putting out as many unfounded rumors as they possibly can. Considering they’re getting about one out of every hundred or so right, we have to take all of these with a gigantic grain of salt. So, keep that in mind as these ‘insiders’ now believe they know a future member of the new Avengers lineup in the MCU.
Mike Sutton, on his new site, Geekosity Mag, is stating that Kit Harrington’s Black Knight will become an Avenger on the new team after his adventure in the highly anticipated Eternals. Formerly of Lords of the Long Box, Sutton has been a part of many shameless rumors, 99% of which did not come true. However, these ‘insiders’ are really good at covering their bases, as they put in little hidden disclaimers like ‘it’s early on’ or ‘the script isn’t complete yet’, etc. Same thing goes here, as Sutton puts a disclaimer along with this rumor.
“Until scripts are written, members won’t be solidified yet but the Black Knight, whom Marvel Studios has high hopes for with The Eternals, is looking like a sure thing.”
Of course, as the finale of Avengers: Endgame demands it, the Avengers are certainly in need of new members. And, as Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe builds to a new future, there will most definitely be new members on the team meant to defend the Earth from whatever threats come their way. While Black Knight would absolutely be a welcomed addition to the team, there is nothing saying that he would move away from the Eternals, especially with the possible love triangle storyline involving himself, Ikaris and Sersi. So, as it always is with these rumors, just keep it in the back of your mind, and as the story unfolds, we’ll keep you informed as to what is actually to come.
