The other day HN Entertainment reported that production on Marvel’s Moon Knight series would be taking place in the United States, which was a bigger deal than some may have assumed as filming was expected to primarily take place in the United Kingdom.
We’ve now learned that they’re planning on shooting some of the series in Los Angeles, California. How much they’ll want to film in the state of California is unknown.
Tax incentives to shoot both California and Atlanta, Georgia have been key for productions shot in the two states, which helps keeps production costs down.
GWW adds that they’ll be shooting in Atlanta.
However, despite the U.S. shoot, a portion of filming will still take place in the United Kingdom as previously revealed and could also take place outside of the United Kingdom as well.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Morocco doubled for Egypt, Black Widow filmed scenes in Morocco.
Filming on Moon Knight is said to be targeting a start on November 16th, where filming will kick-off is a little unclear and extent of the shoot on either side of the pond.
San Francisco, California has been very popular lately with Matrix 4 and Venom 2 shooting exterior scenes there recently along with future plans to shoot both Marvel Studios films Shang-Chi and Ant-Man 3 there as well.
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’re still unclear who will end up playing Marc Spector aka Moon Knight as Daniel Radcliffe recently debunked rumors he was in the mix for the role and Invisible Man actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen loving the fan-casting calls for him to play Spector.
RADCLIFFE: “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.”
Neither Disney nor Marvel Studios have given us an official release date for Moon Knight to begin airing on Disney+.
