It looks like Marvel Studios may have found its Moon Knight for the character’s Disney+ series and it is none other than Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe.
The upcoming Disney+ Marvel shows have recently been gathering some attention with concept art being released for the first set of shows announced and the writers being announced for Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight, however, the latter series in particular has been hotly anticipated since way back when the Netflix Marvel shows were first announced as fans were unhappy that Marvel’s answer to DC’s Dark Knight did not make the cut in favor of the likes of Iron Fist.
However, since the announcement that Moon Knight would be one of several fan-favorite Marvel characters to get their own streaming service shows, fans are looking forward to seeing the former CIA agent turned vigilante with multiple personality disorder finally make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While the series is currently only under order status, the execs at Marvel Studios seem to be setting their sights on casting the titular hero Marc Spector and their prime candidate is apparently Daniel Radcliffe.
Radcliffe was a child star who shot to fame as the titular wizard in the Harry Potter film series based on the books of author J.K. Rowling. Since the end of his stint at Hogwarts in 2011, the actor has appeared in a variety of movie and theater productions as well as some television work. But the one role Radcliffe has not been sorted into yet is the comic-book genre.
This could all soon change as, according to Daniel Richtman’s Patreon, Radcliffe is one of the names in the mix for Moon Knight.
In the comics, Moon Knight’s multiple personality disorder pushes the vigilante’s mind into four separate personas. An actor of Radcliffe’s caliber, known for being a part of more outlandish projects such as Horns and Swiss Army Man while also portraying serious oddballs in movies such as Victor Frankenstien and Now You See Me 2, should be able to accurately and appropriately portray such a character just as James McAvoy did in Split and Andy Serkis did as Gollum/Sméagol.
While Radcliffe’s casting has no official backing to it, the former Harry Potter star being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would please a whole host of fans.
Jeremy Slater has signed on as head writer for Moon Knight.
Could Daniel Radcliffe be a good choice for Moon Knight?
