Earlier this week, the 32-year-old actor shared his honest perspective on Game of Thrones' final season. Harington admitted that while he was "happy" to see Arya's character kill the Night King, he wanted to do it. "I was a bit pissed off, only because I wanted to kill the Night King! I think I felt like everyone else did, in that it had been set up for a long time, and then I didn't get to do it," he told the Hollywood Reporter. "But I was so happy for Maisie and Arya. I was secretly like, 'I wanted to do that!'"
The news comes after Marvel went through its own share of drama: Sony and Marvel Studios ended their partnership, effectively pulling Tom Holland's Spidey out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
