New alleged plot details have leaked for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Moon Knight.
The alleged leak comes from 4 Chan and indicates that Disney and Marvel Studios are looking at a number of actors including Shia LeBouf, Rami Malek, Garrett Hedlund, Justin Theroux, and Michael Ealy to play Moon Knight aka Marc Spector.
However, the leak notes that there is also an internal push to find an unknown actor and surround them with A-listers.
As for the plot details, the show will reportedly feature two different timelines alternating back and forth between 2003 and 2023. The leaker explains, “It will be a trippy sliding timescale that I’ve heard compared to Westworld/Mr. Robot.”
The show will allegedly explore “mental health issues, wealth disparity, and super hero action.”
It will also not shy away from violence despite being on Disney+. The leaker details that in the first episode Spector “throws a man off a skyscraper to his death.”
They also detail that the series will adapt Warren Ellis’ run on the book. In fact, the leaker notes Spector’s “classic costume and the Mr. Knight persona” will appear in the series.
To get an idea of what that might look like here’s Marvel’s official description of Ellis’ first Moon Knight trade paperback:
“Marc Spector is Moon Knight! Or is he? It’s hard to tell these days, especially when New York’s wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and three – that’s right, count ’em – three different personalities! But even with the mystical force of Egyptian moongod Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the night’s greatest detective save a city that’s as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Be here as Moon Knight punches ghosts(!), investigates a sleep experiment that’s driving its patients insane, travels to the mushroom graveyard planet(!!), and takes on twenty mob enforcers to save an abductee…alone. Marvel’s most mind-bending adventure begins now as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York’s most bizarre mysteries!”
There is some reason to doubt this leaker as they note the main villain will be Bushmaster.
Marvel Comics fans know that Bushmaster is primarily an Iron Fist and Luke Cage villain, and was recently the main villain in Luke Cage season 2 on Netflix.
However, it’s more than likely this could just be a simple spelling error as previous rumors indicated longtime Moon Knight villain Bushman would be the primary villain.
Previous rumors indicated that Doctor Strange villain Dormammu, Morpheus, and Stained-Glass Scarlet would also appear on the show.
What do you make of these alleged leaks? Who would you want to see play Marc Spector aka Moon Knight?
