Kevin Feige Believes Moon Knight Has A Future In The MCU
If there’s one thing the Marvel Cinematic Universe has excelled at, it’s making household names out of characters who were largely unfamiliar to the mainstream before they showed up in their current iterations. Think about it: Only Hulk and Captain America had really enjoyed major pop culture exposure in years prior, with Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor having been relatively unknown to those who didn’t read comics. There were cartoons, sure, but not all caught on.
But in the time since 2008, all that’s changed, as yet another crop of heroes consisting of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Black Panther have achieved similar heights. So, naturally, one would assume that many others are waiting for their chance to shine, chief among them being Moon Knight.
In fact, the hero with multiple personalities is someone whom True Believers have clamored for. Perhaps the folks at Screen Rant have been doing likewise, as they asked Marvel Studios’ head honcho Kevin Feige about whether there’s a future for Moon Knight in the MCU, and here’s what he had to say:
“Yes. Does that mean five years from now, 10 years from now, 15 years from now? There are stacks of character cards that we have in our, in our development offices, which we look at. Which we pull for him, which we discussed.”
Um, can we put in a request that he be introduced much sooner than 10-15 years from now? I mean, Moon Knight is kind of obscure, but he’s not that obscure! Even James Gunn pitched an idea involving the character some time ago, but we’re guessing that ship has sailed.
Personally, I always thought that a darker hero such as this would be more suitable for the Netflix initiative, a sentiment that I know I’m not alone in harboring. Really, you have to admit that such a series would make a great companion to Daredevil and The Punisher, but I’m not making the decisions.
