Disney+ has given Marvel the opportunity to introduce more obscure heroes with minimal risks, and one of those heroes incoming will be Marc Spector a.k.a. Moon Knight. We don’t know when the show is set to come out, but production is apparently aiming to start soon.
As per The GWW, Moon Knight is pushing back its original August start in Pinewood Studios UK for a start date on mid-November at Pinewood Studios, Atlanta, Georgia. Umbrella Academy’s Jeremy Slater is set as head writer, but so far we have yet to get a star.
Rumors had come out earlier that Daniel Radcliffe was being considered for the role, but he has since debunked them. Personally, I would love for Shia LaBeouf to take on the part, and it was said that he was being eyed for Marc Spector back in August 2019; I just think he has the capacity to play someone as unhinged as Moon Knight. Hopefully he still has an enthusiasm for franchise films after what went down with Transformers.
So far Marvel has had a stellar run when it comes to casting. Hopefully they have that same quality when it comes to this new era of Marvel TV.
Marc Spector is a former CIA agent whose life is saved by the Moon God Khonshu.
No release date has been set for Moon Knight, but with Marvel Phase 4 already filled up till 2021, it’s possible we’ll get something in 2022. The first Marvel Disney+ show, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, is set to premiere this August.
