Marvel's "Bruce Wayne" may be making his way to the silver screen.
Heroic Hollywood's Umberto Gonzales made a guest appearance on Collider's Collider Heroes segment (which can be found on their YouTube channel) where he claims that Moon Knight is being developed for a Netflix appearance.
"The Heroic hot rumor is that Moon Knight is actually being developed for Netflix since he is their version of Bruce Wayne. Like the way they're backdoor piloting Punisher for Daredevil Season 2, if it works out, then boom, same thing for Moon Knight [...] I'd rather see the Netflix version of Moon Knight than the cinematic one."
For those who don't know much about Moon Knight, here's a basic breakdown of his origins from YouTube channel Comicstorian:
The Marvel/Netflix "sub-universe" has definitely captivated Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, Netflix users, and newcomers to the superhero genre. Daredevil's Season 1 has been received greatly by critics who praised its darker tone in comparison to the films. As a result, the series was picked up for a second season, featuring Jon Bernthal as hardcore antihero Frank Castle/The Punisher, due to debut in 2016.
The Marvel steam engine has been rolling since then, with Netflix preparing to drop the next installment in their agreement, Jessica Jones, on November 20th. A handful of fans were treated to a screening of the new show's first episode last week at New York Comic Con. So far, the reviews have been outstanding, claiming that Jessica Jones is Marvel's "darkest project to date."
The train doesn't stop there, though. Luke Cage, starring Mike Colter in the lead role, is already in production, set for a 2016 release alongside Daredevil Season 2. The last two installments in Marvel's "Netflix Phase 1," Iron Fist and The Defenders, have yet to start production, but are still at the forefronts of fans' minds.
Marvel's Netflix shows have been praised for their dark, gritty aesthetics and grounded stories that serve a better purpose in a thirteen episode story arc instead of a two-and-a-half hour film.
While the films are great events to watch with fellow Marvel fans, the Netflix shows are able to explore more fluidly, allowing the characters to grow with each season while assuring fans that the payoff will be worth it in the end.
With talk of what Marvel's Netflix Phase 2 may be, fans are already speculating who they may bring on. From Blade (or the daughter of Blade?) to the Punisher to even She-Hulk, it seems like Moon Knight may have a home in the Netflix world after all.
Don't forget, Jessica Jones premieres on November 20th, and Daredevil's Season 2, whose teaser trailer was released not too long ago, will arrive in 2016.
