A new rumor details that The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal is on the short list to play Moon Knight in the upcoming Disney Plus series.
The rumor comes from Mikey Sutton who details that “according to several inside sources I spoke to, the Mandalorian himself — Pedro Pascal — is on the list of actors being considered to play Moon Knight for the MCU.”
Sutton does add that his sources “stress that no talks or any negotiations have begun yet but Pascal clicks the right buttons for the role.”
One of those buttons is the fact that “he has no issues hiding his face for long stretches of screen time.”
Sutton also details that if Marvel Studios does decide to choose Pascal “there will not be any scheduling conflicts with the hugely successful Mandalorian.”
Sutton does warn that Pascal has not been selected to play Moon Knight yet.
“Before anybody jumps the gun, he is on the list but hasn’t been selected yet.”
A previous rumor indicated Shia LeBouf, Rami Malek, Garrett Hedlund, Justin Theroux, and Michael Ealy were also on Marvel’s short list to play Marc Spector.
This rumor regarding Pedro Pascal comes amid a flurry of Moon Knight rumors.
Recently we’ve gotten wind that Marvel Studios is interested in introducing Dracula in the Moon Knight show and that it could even lead into the Blade film starring Mahershala film.
Along with the rumor about Dracula, MCU Cosmic reported that Werewolf By Night aka Jack Russell would also appear in Moon Knight.
Jeremy Conrad writes, “And now it does appear that is the case, as the character of Jack Russell is expected to play some role in the upcoming Moon Knight series.”
Moon Knight’s first appearance was in Werewolf By Night #32 as an antagonist who was hired by the Committee to capture the werewolf.
Moon Knight would go on to have a number of battles against the werewolf.
