According to Discussing Film, Marvel Studios is planning to start production on Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series, Moon Knight, in early 2021 in Budapest.
Marvel has been making some big leaps forward with the project recently with the casting of Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight and the hiring of Egyptian director Mohamed Diab (Clash) to helm the series.
The story for the series focuses on Marc Spector a.k.a. Moon Knight. The character has multiple different alter egos including millionaire Steven Grant and cab driver Jake Lockley. These alter egos may or may not be separate, alternate personalities, and the same may be true of Khonshu, the Egyptian deity who is either guiding Spector through his costumed adventures or a figment of Spector’s imagination. Most recently, the character was a consultant who dresses in all-white and goes by the name Mr. Knight.
Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin and appeared in the August 1975 issue Werewolf by Night #32. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) and Beau DeMayo (The Originals and The Witcher) writing the series. Gregory Middleton (Final Girl, Watchmen, Game of Thrones) and Stefania Cella (Morbius) signing on as the series’ cinematographer and production designer, respectively.
