Marvel Studios is Interested in Developing a MOON KNIGHT Movie and a NOVA Film Has "Immediate Potential"
Marvel Studios has yet to reveal anything regarding the next phase of their Marvel film beyond that fact that a Spider-Man sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be a part of it. There's a whole line of movies just waiting to be revealed!
While we wait for those details to be announced, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did talk about a couple films that they might be getting around to making sometime in the future. Those films would revolve around the characters Nova and Moon Knight.
When talking about Nova, Feige says that it has "immediate potential". This is what he told a room full of press:
"[If] we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board. Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy]."
The cosmic superhero Nova is such a great character and he could easily make a great solo movie. Feige obviously did go into any detail on how the character would be handled, but he did say:
"We're figuring those things out. It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many of the characters that audiences are clamoring to see more. The question is how do we show them all?"
Another one of those characters that he would like to play with on the big screen is Moon Knight, which has previously been talked about being a series. If a movie does happen, though, it's one that might not be for awhile. While talking Screen Rant, Feige was asked if he had plans for the character and he said:
"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."
Moon Knight is a fan-favorite Marvel character, so it makes sense that they would eventually bring the character to life in some way. Just in case you need a reminder of who Moon Knight is:
Moon Knight, Marc Spector, Steven Grant and Jake Lockley: four different aspects of the same man who was resurrected by Khonshu, the Egyptian Lunar-God of Vengeance and Justice to serve as his "avatar". Those unjust mortals who prey upon the innocents who travel at night, with powers that come from the moon, beware the Vengeance of the Moon Knight!
He's a dark and gritty character that would work great as a Netflix series, but if Marvel actually wants to bring that kind of tone to the MCU, I'd love to see it happen!
What do you think about the possibility of seeing Nova and Moon Knight films get made?
