‘Avengers: Endgame’ Writer Wants To Bring Moon Knight To The MCU
The recently released Avengers: Endgame may not have been the swan song for Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. In an interview with The New York Times, Markus revealed that he would like to tackle the script for a Moon Knight movie.
“We really do just know what you know,” Markus said. “They’re doing The Eternals, which is a property I know next to nothing about. We’ve been here, trying to set this contraption running. Were we to take another one on, you can’t increase the scope or the stakes from where we are at the moment. We’d have to shrink it back down, do an origin story. There are deep-bench characters where I’m like, if you roll that guy out, I couldn’t resist. There is a great Moon Knight movie to be made, but I don’t know what is.”
Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Moon Knight debuted in Marvel Comics’ Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975. Fans of the character clamored for him to be given his own Netflix series before the deal between Marvel and the streaming service came to an end.
In December, The Walking Dead star Ross Marquand showed interest in portraying Moon Knight for Marvel. The 37-year-old actor, of course, brought the Red Skull back to the big screen last year in Avengers: Infinity War.
