ANAHEIM — Kit Harrington is heading to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, joining the cast of immortal beings in “Eternals.”

Marvel president Kevin Feige announced the news from the D23 fan convention stage Saturday, with little fanfare over the heavily rumored and hotly anticipated news for the next major project for the “Game of Thrones” star.

Feige kept the specific role a mystery, only saying that the British actor, 34, would be a “non-Eternal.” 

While the “Eternals” cast — including “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden (Ikaris) and Angelina Jolie (warrior Thena) and Salma Hayek (Ajak)— took the convention stage for the presentation, Harrington was not present. His photo was flashed on the convention hall screen.

The secretive film has not begun production and is due out November 2020.

‘The Mandalorian’ trailer drops: 6 Disney projects that rocked D23

In other Marvel D23 news, Spider-Man Tom Holland made his first very public appearance since news of his superhero character’s apparent divorce from the Marvel Universe due to a contractual spat between Sony Studios and Walt Disney Studios, Marvel’s parent company.

Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man, but had a previous Disney deal to allow the iconic superhero to appear in Marvel films, including a pivotal role in “Avengers: Endgame.” This agreement has now reportedly lapsed, much to the consternation of Marvel fans.

At D23, one fan made a mock Tom Holland flower memorial to mourn a future without Spider-Man in Marvel movies.

Holland appeared onstage Saturday with “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt for a non-superhero project  — the two voice elf brothers in the Pixar animated film “Onward.”

Holland did not directly address the disagreement from the stage, but he did send a message to fans at the end of the “Onward” presentation.

“Hey you guys, it’s been a crazy week,” Holland said, before borrowing a line from his Marvel mentor Iron Man. “But I just want to tell you from the bottom of my heart that I love you 3000.”

Holland was more forthcoming backstage at the D23 event. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly the 23-year-old British actor said he was looking forward to appearing in Spider-Man movies separate from the Marvel Universe.

 “Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland told EW. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
