Kit revealed: "Snape is the best character, ever. The storyline of Snape. Severus Snape is the most tragic, wonderful, brilliant...
"He's a character you hate, but you end up loving. He's just phenomenal. I don't think I'm right for him, so I'll play Sirius [Black]. But, whoever gets to play Snape, that's a great character."
TBF we can't see anyone doing Alan Rickman or Gary Oldman's roles justice... but Kit's a great contender. Especially with his hair.
As of right now, Kit is busy with his new Marvel Studios movie The Eternals, set to be released in November 2020. He will be playing the role of Dane Whitman, the Black Knight.
In fact, Kit will be starring alongside his GoT brother Richard Madden (Robb Stark), and Angelina Jolie.
The Eternals is based on the Jack Kirby comic book from 1976 which is set millions of years in the past.
