James Gunn and Marvel Talked About a Moon Knight Movie

Posted: January 5, 2017 in Comic Book News

Recently, James Gunn revealed in a Twitter discussion with his fans that he’s very interested in developing a Moon Knight movie for Marvel. Responding to a fan asking whether or not the character would make an appearance during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (since the character has the word “Moon” in his name), Gunn stated:

Gunn later revealed more information in a separate response to another fan, stating that he had already spoken with (as of yet unnamed) individuals at Marvel about his ideas, but couldn’t go forward with them due to a full schedule.

Although we won’t be getting a James Gunn led Moon Knight movie anytime soon, we can at least take comfort in the fact that discussions regarding the character’s appearances in other media are taking place at Marvel. Personally, I’d hope that he’d follow the Defenders and get a show on Netflix, as previously stated in rumors regarding future MCU projects, but only time will tell whether or not Marvel will go that route.

Moon Knight, a former mercenary turned schizophrenic superhero after becoming the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, and oftentimes described as “Marvel’s Batman”, was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in Werewolf by Night #32.

What do you think about the idea of a James Gunn led Moon Knight movie?
