A few days after reports came out that both the Moon Knight and She-Hulk Disney+ series have found their lead writers, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Marvel CCO and President Kevin Feige and he shared some additional details on both projects.
According to the trade, Feige confirmed that both Moon Knight and She-Hulk will appear on the big screen after their Disney+ debuts, along with Ms. Marvel.
Jeremy Slater (Umbrella Academy) will lead the writing team on Moon Knight, while Jessica Gao (Rick & Morty) will lead She-Hulk. Castings on both projects are underway with the hopes of starting production next Summer with a 2021 debut on the upcoming streaming service.
Moon Knight follows Marc Spector a man who’s been shattered into 4 separate identities who come together to become the hooded crusader of vengeance: The Moon Knight. The studio is looking for a “Zac Efron-type,” and preferably someone of Israeli descent to play Moon Knight.
The studio is currently looking to cast a 30-40 year old women to play Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk. In the comics, Walters is Bruce Banner’s cousin, and became She-Hulk after Bruce provided her with blood in order to save her life. It’s unknown of the Disney+ series will remain faithful to this origin story.
Reports did come out last month that Liv Tyler and William Hurt would reprise their roles of Betty Ross and Thunderbolt Ross.
