It’s always a beautiful and a fantastic thing when actors, directors and even writers reach out and connect with their fans on social media.
One of those celebrities who is big on fan interaction, is Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director; James Gunn. While talking with fans, he has previously stated that he is a huge fan of Moon Knight. He’s also let fans know that he’d love to make a movie about the character, but he just doesn’t have the time to make it happen.
Not too long after James Gunn tweeted this statement, the responses immediately began flooding in. A surprising tweet came from actor Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays King Pin on the Netflix series Daredevil.
Although some fans find themselves disappointed that the first Hollywood director to pitch the whole ‘Moon Knight’ idea to Marvel states that he ‘doesn’t have the time’, fans have not given up hope. Moon Knight, also known as ‘Marvel’s Batman’, is one of those characters that may be found too violent for Marvel’s liking…. at least on the big screen; which is why fans of the underrated character have began pleading both Marvel and Netflix for him to get his own series.
Over the past weekend, the demand for a Moon Knight Netflix series has seen a significant increase. Some fans have even began speculating in regards to who they would like to see playing the character.
Marvel not yet responded to fan tweets and other social media comments, but we will certainly keep our fingers crossed! Moon Knight is definitely an underrated Marvel character. So far, he has really only made one animated appearance in an episode of Ultimate Spiderman in the episode titled ‘The Moon Knight Before Christmas’.
Personally, I would love to see this happen. A Netflix series would give them so much more room to work with in regards to the characters story, rather than try and cram everything into a 2 hour movie. I’m still pulling for Michael Fassbender to play him also!
