Marvel says Moon Knight will join the MCU


Moon Knight has been brought up a lot recently with Marvel fans hoping to see the beloved hero on screen.

It seems like the company has been listening because Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige announced they have plans for the character.

With the latest surge of creative Marvel entertainment offerings (except for Inhumans) it’s exciting to imagine what’s in store for Moon Knight.

Screen Rant recently was able to interview Feige for Avengers: Infinity War where they asked him about the future of Moon Knight.

He happily confirmed that Marvel has indeed been working on a way to integrate the character into the MCU.

"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."

Unfortunately, that sounds like fans might have to wait a little longer before he makes the leap to live action. Especially because Marvel has been shifting towards more cosmic heroes for Phase Four following the conclusion of the next Avengers film.

However, Marvel could move Moon Knight to a television show, like a former Daredevil showrunner wanted. Steven S. DeKnight spoke in an interview earlier this year about his desire to bring the vigilante to the Netflix universe.

Historically, Moon Knight is a street level hero and would fit in better with the darker noir atmosphere on the streaming service.

It’s unclear if Marvel Studios would be willing to let the character go to the television division. Many fans have attributed the lack of a crossover between the MCU shows and movies due to a rivalry between the two studios.

Apparently, a feud erupted between Ike Perlmutter (Marvel Entertainment CEO) and Kevin Feige which led Bob Iger to separate the two entities. Marvel Television reports to Perlmutter, while Feige is able to deal directly with Disney.

Hopefully, the two separate entities will be able to put their differences aside to do the best for the character. Jeph Loeb has done a great job shaping the Marvel Television universe and with DeKnight onboard, it seems like Netflix is the perfect fit.

However, the announcement about Moon Knight’s future came from Feige so Marvel will probably try to develop a movie first.
