THE WALKING DEAD's Ross Marquand Wants To Play Moon Knight in The MCU
Kevin Feige and Marvel are wanting to put Moon Knight in the public eye. The catch? We don’t know if it will happen or when or who. Heck, we don’t even know if it would be a movie or a TV series. I think it could really work well either way. Steven DeKnight, former showrunner of Daredevil, has even said he would love to work on a Moon Knight series. Regardless, one actor is throwing his hat into the ring to play the hero. At ComiCONN 2018, Ross Marquand said he’d love the role when he was asked if there was a Marvel character he wanted to play.
"Moon Knight! It’s tough because a lot of my friends have said Moon Knight is essentially just Marvel’s answer to Batman, but I don’t agree with that. With what they’ve been doing the last 15 years with the character–going into the dissociative identity disorder, really calling in to question if everything happening is all in his head, is he actually a vigilante killer or did he die in Egypt? It brings up a slew of questions, and that to me has never really been delved into in any comic book character before–the idea of, is any of this actually happening?
Those are such amazing questions and I don’t feel like any comic book series before or since has really tapped into that. So for me, playing a crazy superhero would be awesome. So Moon Knight, Moon Knight for sure."
Marquand was recently in Infinity War as the voice for Red Skull and many fans will know him from The Walking Dead. Do you like the idea of Marquand in the role, or do you have someone else in mind?
