Three new members of the cast: Barry Keoghan, playing “Druig”, Gemma Chan who will be playing “Sersi” and Kit Harrington who’s playing “Dane Whitman,” were introduced.
Chan is already a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe having played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel.
Dane Whitman is also known as the Black Knight, a character who has been rumored to join the Marvel live-action universe for quite some time and was rumored to have seen his debut in Avengers: Endgame, which obviously didn’t happen. A British superhero, his introduction plays to more rumors we might see more British superheroes like Captain Britain.
