"I feel that emotionally men have a problem, a blockage, and that blockage has come from World War II, passed down from grandfather to father to son," explained Kit Harington. "We don't talk about how we feel because he shows weakness, because he's not masculine."
"Having played a man who was silent, who was heroic, I feel like in the future that's a role that I no longer want to do," Kit Harington said of Jon Snow. "It is not a male role that the world needs to see much more."

What will your character in Los Eternos be like?
Marvel signed up Kit harington to play Dane Whitman / Black Knight in the movie of The Eternals (2021), for now we have very few details of his character, so we do not know if he will look like Jon snow And that's why he doesn't want any more roles like that, or he'll be totally different and he's much more comfortable giving it life. He has probably not commented on anything because he has to keep the movie a secret on Marvel's orders. Although your role may be short and you haven't been able to explore Black knight in deep. So his words would be a warning to those who have to create future stories where it fits Dane whitman.
Kit harington recently delivered an amazing and very different performance in Criminal: UK of Netflix, so it seems his career will take him on new paths now that Game of Thrones is over.
