Graphic artist SPDRMNKYXXIII imagined Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe as Marvel’s Moon Knight after catching wind of some rumors that Radcliffe was being eyed to play Marc Spector.
SPDRMNKYXXIII captions his depiction of Radcliffe as Moon Knight writing, “Rumor has it Daniel Radcliffe is being eyed to play Moon Knight. What do you think of this casting? I actually like it.”
He then details his artist process behind the mock up, “For those asking. I used the heroes of athens hood as a base from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The body armor is self made.”
Take a look.
As for those rumors involving Radcliffe, they come from We Got This Covered.
They reported back in September, “The studio is already eyeing up several actors to play the lead role and one name that we’re hearing might be connected with the project is Daniel Radcliffe.”
Radcliffe is not the only actor rumored to be in the running for Moon Knight. A 4 Chan leak alleged Marvel Studios was also looking at Shia LeBouf, Rami Malek, Garret Hedlund, Justin Theroux, and Michael Ealy. However, that leaker indicated there was an internal push to find an unknown actor and surround them with A-listers.
The most recent rumor regarding Moon Knight casting indicates that Pedro Pascal is at the top of the short list. Mikey Sutton explained, “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.”
However, he added that his sources “stress that no talks or any negotiations have begun yet but Pascal clicks the right buttons for the role.”
