D23 Expo is currently in full swing in Anaheim, which means fans of Disney and all of their properties are being overwhelmed with news of their favorite franchises. The latest bit of information that has the Internet abuzz is the casting of Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington (Jon Snow) in Marvel's The Eternals. In addition to being cast as Dane Whitman/Black Knight, Harington will also be reunited with his Game of Thrones brother (er, cousin) Richard Madden. Madden portrayed Robb Stark on Game of Thrones and will be portraying Ikaris in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fans have been excitedly reacting to the Harington news, especially over the Game of Thrones reunion. While Harington managed to survive the entire series, Madden’s character was killed off during season three’s infamous Red Wedding. However, the two men were never in a scene together after Jon set off for The Wall in the second episode of the series.
Here are some of the best fan reactions to the Harington and Madden reunion news…
