Based on a recent interview with Inverse, it appears The Russo Brothers are just as excited for the upcoming Moon Knight Disney Plus series as fans are.
After multiple Marvel Studios projects in a row, the Russo Brothers are now tackling Cherry starring Tom Holland. However, the Russo Brothers have expressed interest in returning to Marvel Studios down the line. Some projects that the Russo Brothers have said they would return for include Secret Wars and Fantastic Four, but now there is another. Here’s what Joe Russo had to say about Disney Plus’ Moon Knight:
“Moon Knight would be fun. It’s hard to say because we’re in the middle of Cherry right now. We’re on location in Cleveland shooting at the moment. But anything Marvel does is going to be special. And we’ve had such an amazing working relationship with them that I’m sure we’re all gonna find something to come back together.”
What project do you think will bring the Russo Brothers back to Marvel Studios? Comment below!
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.
In addition to Moon Knight, Marvel Studios is also developing The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk for Disney Plus.
The Russo Brothers’ Avengers: Endgame is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Disney Plus.
