By now, you know Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The news made several Marvel fans start hoping the fan-favorite actor would be playing Wolverine, arguably the biggest character Marvel Studios got from their acquisition of 20th Century Fox.
Earlier today, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced the actor wouldn't be playing the adamantium-laced super mutant. Rather, Harington would be playing Dane Whitman, more commonly known as Black Knight to hardcore Marvel fans. Suffice to say, those fans hoping to see him as Wolverine are furious. Keep scrolling to see what fans are saying about Harington's new casting...

So instead of casting Kit Harington as Wolverine and really giving him a huge role they type cast him and basically make him Jon Snow 😂😂— ExistentialAsthmatic (@0YoungSimba0) August 24, 2019
Kind of disappointed that Kit Harington is playing Black Knight. Was hoping he was going to be Wolverine. Oh well. I’m sure he will kick ass in The Eternals.— Tristan Fiore (@TristanFiore) August 24, 2019

It’s all good, dude. He was quite prominent in Avengers books in the ‘90s, so I’m pretty familiar with him. That said, Kit should’ve been the new Wolverine. Such a shame.— 𝙺𝚎𝚗 𝙻𝚒𝚟𝚒𝚝𝚜𝚔𝚒 (@KennethLivitski) August 24, 2019
Kit Harrington not being Wolverine is a human rights violation.
He has the height and look for wolverine. 😡— Salah (@JamesTheBaldwin) August 24, 2019
