Top 10 Actors Who Should Play Moon Knight For Marvel

10. Tom Hardy


Certainly physically capable for the role, Tom Hardy’s gruffness makes him perfect for the suited-up side of Moon Knight. And he’s no stranger to superhero films either, having played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. He would likely be able to do the suave millionaire mercenary angle of the character as well, but with a character like Moon Knight, all aspects of his personality must be done well. And I’m not sure if he’d pull off the multiple personality side of Marc Spector, which leaves him at number 10 on my list. I don’t think his coarse voice would convey the psychosis of the character well enough, even if he might have the physicality on lock.

    i need to see Hugh Dancy as Moon Knight! He have been fan cast before as this character, his facial features are perfect for the role and I want to see a new face in roles like this.

    • Razzle Dazzle

      I completely agree with you.

    Tom Hardy was the first name that came to mind when I saw this headline. I also like the ideas of Zachary Quinto or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. How about Nikolaj Coster-Waldau? I think he could pull off all aspects of the character, and he should be available in about 18 months…..

      Just thought of one more: Timothy Olyphant.

        If they go the film route maybe, definitely a bit older than what they seem to be going for on Netflix though.

    • Leon Brill

      For some reason I just don’t see him in the role. Also I’d hope Moon Knight will get going before then, granted Jamie may die on GoT before the series is over.

    Jake Gyllenhaal would be great.
