Marvel Studios Reportedly Seeking Daniel Radcliffe as ‘Moon Knight‘. The Harry Potter and Now You See Me 2 star is reportedly being eyed for the role of Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight in an all new series on Disney+.
Daniel Richtman shared to his Patreon, “Daniel Radcliffe is one name in the mix for Moon Knight.”
The idea of Daniel Radcliffe being cast as Moon Knight/Marc Spector makes complete sense, especially since it is also being reported by Murphy’s Multiverse that Moon Knight will begin filming in the U.K., the famed brits homeland. Moon Knight is expected to begin filming at Pinewood Studios UK, the same studio being used to film Marvel’s The Eternals and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
For those who find themselves going, “Who’s Moon Knight?” Comicbook.com shares this short description, “Moon Knight is actually Marc Spector, a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman but was saved by the Moon God Khonshu. After he defeated Bushman he would become the Moon Knight and wear the all-white costume that has become his trademark.
The other major element to Spector is that Spector isn’t his only personality. Inside Marc’s head reside four personalities that are variations on the core person. In addition to Spector, his mind holds Steven Grant, Jake Lockley, and Khonshu himself, and all four interact and at times cooperate and at others vie for control. This is what sets the hero apart from so many others, and is also why Moon Knight goes to places that other heroes aren’t comfortable going.
