Last year there was a rumor circulating online that Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe was in the mix to play the role of Marc Spector in Marvel’s upcoming Moon Knight series for Disney+.
Now, ComingSoon was able to directly speak to Daniel Radcliffe about those rumors and says that isn’t true, debunking it.
RADCLIFFE: “If I was ever to go back into a franchise, I think the bar for that script would be even higher than anything else.”
“Before you can sign on to being in anything for multiple years, you have to be sure you’re really going to love it all the time. I’m not averse to doing any kind of franchise thing in the future again, that could be fun. But the Moon Knight rumors are untrue, I can officially debunk that one, I haven’t heard anything about it.”
The rumor originally came from Daniel Richtman’s Patreon page as pointed-out by ComicBookResources back in December.
Production on Moon Knight (working title Good Faith) is going to take place in England, potentially closer to the fall/winter.
Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four, Umbrella Company) is the head writer on the series with The Witcher’s Beau DeMayo recently joining as well.
Marvel has yet to announce who will be directing Moon Knight.
The hero is ostensibly Marc Spector, a mercenary who has numerous after egos – cabbie Jake Lockley and millionaire playboy Steven Grant – in order to better fight the criminal underworld. But later he was established as being a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Most recently, he was a consultant who dresses in all-white and goes by the name Mr. Knight.
We’ll be excited to hear who they ultimately end up hiring to play Moon Knight.
