The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been putting out some pretty incredible and successful works lately, so it is to no surprise that the fan base is continuing to grow and demand that some other characters start to come forward. We already knew that the films on the big screen were smashing hits; but now we can also appreciate the Marvel Television Series that have appeared on Netflix over the last few years.
These shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Defenders and Luke Cage) have the ability to bring on a more darker take on these Marvel heroes – which has been causing fans to call for other characters to appear, particularly Moon Knight.
A few actors have become fan ideals for the role (Stephen Amell and Michael Fassbender) and quite a few others have stated that they would love to play the iconic character. Recently at a Walker Stalker panel, Ross Marquad voiced that he would absolutely love to take on the role. Recently, Captain America stunt-man Chris Brewster also expressed a sincere interest in the role. After recently appearing on Marvel News Desk podcast he revealed which character was next on his list:
“Moon Knight. Again, I feel like the physical character to most superheroes is very surface layer. What I thoroughly enjoy about Daredevil is the depth of his character and the depth of his character translates within his movement. You know, he’s just your typical ‘I’m a hero so as soon as a bad guy comes at me I hit him once and I’m done!'”
Brewster has a lot of experience in the MCU, and knows his way around a lot of the characters. Alongside Captain America: Civil War, Brewster has also appeared in films like Black Panther and Ant-Man and The Wasp. However, he would like to start taking on some of the characters with the much ‘darker’ agenda’s – like Moon Knight or Daredevil.
“Daredevil definitely walks that line of going too far on a regular basis and that is a really interesting element and it makes it a lot of fun to choreograph. Sometimes you might hit somebody once and knock them out but other times once the guy’s no longer a threat he might just keep going because he enjoys hurting the bad people and Moon Knight is one of the very few characters who, I think, reaches the same depth of psychosis.”
