James Gunn is a huge comic book fan and Marvel Studios is lucky to have him as the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Yesterday, the director was answering his fans on Twitter and we got a great insight on Moon Knight, a fan-favorite comic book character, inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A fan wanted Gunn to include Moon Knight in his Guardians of the Galaxy movie, to which he replied–
This tweet made it clear that while the character will not be a part of 2017’s big release, it certainly paved the way for a movie later on the Marvel Cinematic Universe or a Netflix series ala The Defenders.
James Gunn has already pitched in the idea for Moon Knight and it would be great for us fans if he helms the project.
There have been persistent rumours that Netflix has looked at developing a Moon Knight series at some point, which would certainly seem like a good fit. The dark, gritty tone and feel of Moon Knight would fit in pretty well with the other characters in that corner of the MCU.
In the comics Moon Knight has appeared in various teams like The Avengers, Secret Avengers, Heroes for Hire and The Defenders.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 releases on May 5th 2017.Marvel’s The Defenders comes out later this year exclusively on Netflix.
