As the Marvel Cinematic Universe's roster of heroes continues to expand, the writers behind the blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War are still rooting for the Fist of Khonshu, Moon Knight.
Appearing on Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus addressed the possibility of Moon Knight making a leap to the big screen.
"Somebody should make a really good Moon Knight movie, but it's complicated," Markus said. "At the beginning, he was kinda good but kinda cheesy, and then, later on, he got kinda awesome, but the awesome part kind of needs the cheesy part to make sense, so it gets convoluted very quickly. But he's Jewish, which is nice."
Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, debuted in 1975 in Marvel Comics' Werewolf by Night, and later had his story fleshed out in his own series. The mercenary-turned-vigilante has dissociative identity disorder (its severity varies from writer to writer) and worships Khonshu, the ancient Egyptian god of the moon, after believing the deity resurrected him.
In theaters now, Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin.
