Marvel Studios Disney+ series Moon Knight is deep into pre-production, and thanks to a new report, we now know when production on the project will kick-off.
According to Geeks WorldWide, production on the series is expected to begin later this year in November at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, this is also where Marvel’s other series, Ms. Mavrel and She-Hulk will have their productions this Summer. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki have also shot there.
The search is on for Marc Spector aka Moon Knight, a man with multiple personality disorder who believes he was resurrected and given powers by the Egyptian god Knoshu. Reports surfaced last year that the studio was looking for a “Zac Efron-type,” and preferably someone of Israeli descent to play the titular hero. Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was reportedly being eyed for the role but in a recent interview last week Radcliffe denied any talks or involvement on the series.
Jeremy Slater (Umbrella Academy) will lead the writing team and is the showrunner on Moon Knight alongside Beau DeMayo who wrote the Netflix hit series The Witcher starring Henry Cavill (Man of Steel).
Plot details are being kept under wraps but previous reports say that Marvel’s Dracula could appear alongside the titular character. Moon Knight will likely debut on Disney+ sometime next Fall and will ultimately crossover onto the big screen in future films along with Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk.
