‘The Witcher’ Writer Joins Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’ Series

The Witcher Moon Knight Marvel

The Witcher writer Beau DeMayo has joined Marvel’s Moon Knight series which will debut on Disney Plus.

One of Netflix’s biggest hits from last year was their adaption of The Witcher, a show that filled the fantasy gap left by Game of Thrones. Much has been said about The Witcher‘s story, with many citing it to be confusing while others praising it for being a bold take on a complex narrative that doesn’t insult its audience’s intelligence. It appears that Marvel was impressed with the risks that the writing on The Witcher took and is getting writer Beau DeMayo to join the Moon Knight series on Disney Plus.

Over on Twitter, Beau DeMayo changed his bio to reveal that he’s working on Marvel’s Moon Knight series. Unfortunately, the Marvel writer didn’t reveal any information regarding the Moon Knight series but it’s certain that more information will trickle out as the series heads into production. This news comes in the wake of Beau DeMayo joining The Witcher spin-off anime film for Netflix titled The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

Marvel’s Moon Knight series is set to begin production this year and now that its writing team seems to be finalizing, casting is just over the horizon. With a writer from The Witcher, Moon Knight is set to be one of Marvel’s most exciting projects. It has been suggested that Marvel’s Moon Knight series will feature someone of Israeli descent in the title role to further its authenticity. Only time will tell who Marvel casts for the upcoming Moon Knight series.

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 SoldierWandaVisionLokiWhat If…?, HawkeyeMs. Marvel, and She-Hulk for Disney Plus.
