D23: Marvel news round-up – Kit Harrington joins The Eternals and we’re getting a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series

August 24th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Gemma Chan and Barry Keoghan Joins The Eteranals as Sersi and Druig

On top of this, Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington will star in Marvel’s Eternals movie too as The Black Knight, a former villain and wielder of the mystical Ebony Blade. He’s got a history with Sersi. Oh and Sersi and Black Knight have both been Avengers in the comics, so…

And here’s the cast:

Very little news on the whole Spider-man affair, however, Tom Holland onstage for his new movie with Chris Pratt, told the crowd: “It’s been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you 3,000.” 

Disney Channel has ordered Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, an animated series based on the comic book series.

The series follows 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her ten-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur who Lunella accidentally released in present-day New York City via a time vortex. The duo protect the city’s Lower East Side.

The series is produced by Lawrence Fishburne: “As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur,” Fishburne said.

“Disney Channel is the perfect platform to explore this pint-sized female African American superhero, and I can’t wait for their audience to enjoy the lighthearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
