Avengers: Endgame actor Ross Marquand reveals that out of all the characters in Marvel Comics he wants to play, Moon Knight is the role he wants the most.
Ross Marquand, who replaced Hugo Weaving as Red Skull in the last two Avengers films revealed that given his love for Marvel Comics lasted since he was young, he was obsessed with characters that looked scarier compared to their colorful, more heroic counterparts. And along with that, Ross Marquand also expressed his desires to play Moon Knight, who will have his own live-action Disney+ series:
“I’ve said for many years if I could play any Marvel character… I used to say Wolverine, but now, it’s like, you know what? Hugh did such a good job with that. Hugh Jackman’s performance was damn near flawless, I think. So, I wouldn’t even want to touch that. ‘Cause people would just be comparing it. But, not a lot of people know Moon Knight. And, I grew up loving Moon Knight so much so, if I could play him or even just have an opportunity to audition for it, I would be the happiest guy in this town, for sure.”
Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight series was announced in August as one of the upcoming new live-action series coming to the Disney+ streaming service. At this time, no casting has been announced but if Ross Marquand were to play Moon Knight, he wouldn’t be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe actor to play two different roles in the same franchise. Most recently, actress Gemma Chan appeared in Captain Marvel and will next appear in The Eternals as a different character.
