The film will reunite Harington and Madden, who played Jon Snow and Robb Stark in. Gemma Chan previously appeared in the MCU as Captain Marvel’s Minn-Erva, but Sersi is a separate character.
In December 2019, Nanjiani revealed the fruits of his training – and the intense regimen it takes to sustain it – to play swordsman Kingo in some. In March 2020 he will have impersonate Wolverine ( ) and other iconic movie characters for a Men’s Health photo shoot.
“I couldn’t have done this if I hadn’t had a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the largest studio in the world,” he wrote in his original Instagram caption. “I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I’ve never done it before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time.”

In the comics, they are an evolutionary offshoot of humanity living on Earth, which has greater powers and a longer lifespan. The Celestials, a group of space gods, created them to defend Earth.
We’ve already seen a few Celestials in themovies – most notably the space station Knowhere (actually the severed head of a Celestial) and Peter Quill’s father, Ego, (who took on human form) in .
