John Wick star Keanu Reeves becomes Marc Spector and suits up as Moon Knight for the MCU in a new piece of fan art.
There’s been no word on who Marvel Studios is eyeing to play Moon Knight in the character’s Disney Plus series for the MCU, but a new piece of fan art pictures John Wick star Keanu Reeves in the role. Ever since the Moon Knight series was announced, fans have constantly been suggesting who could take on Marc Spector in the MCU. Two big names that keep coming up are Andrew Garfield and Keanu Reeves. This was only fuelled even further after Kevin Feige mentioned he’d love to get Keanu Reeves in the MCU.
The new piece of fan art from digital artist “britedit” takes Keanu Reeves and puts him in Moon Knight’s iconic white and black armor. The artwork takes Keanu Reeves from one of the John Wick posters to make him look a little beaten up. The armor itself is incredibly tactical and looks like it could dish out some serious punishment. The second image in the Instagram post below imagines what a realistic take on his mask might look like for the MCU. Here’s what Keanu Reeves could look like as Moon Knight for the MCU.

Disney is set to make a big splash with its Marvel Studios properties on its upcoming streaming service. First up is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier which will be followed by shows like WandaVision, Loki, What If…? and Hawkeye. Details on the newly announced projects such as Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight, all of which were announced during the Disney Plus presentation at the D23 Expo last month, remain under wraps.
In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent turned mercenary where he made millions. His wealth from being a mercenary and investments land him anywhere between $50 million to $3 billion in net worth, granting him a suave Bruce Wayne-style life. Yet during his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.
Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities, Steven Grant, and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer, while Lockley was a cab driver.
It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night; yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles and costumes to suit his needs.
