Daniel Radcliffe set for Moon Knight role on Disney+?

December 22nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

With Disney+ currently ramping up its content in the Marvel and Star Wars universes, we’re always keen to hear who may be playing the next big hero/villain/Jedi/whatever.

And tonight we have a doozy.

It seems that Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, may be in the running for the title role in the subscription service’s Moon Knight series according to reporter Daniel Richtman.

Yes, apparently Radcliffe is down to the last few choices to play Marc Spectre in the show. Spectre is a darkly funny character, a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist but was saved by the Moon God Khonshu and who speaks to his own various past incarnations and resembles, in other ways, Batman as a dark vigilante who deals out vengeance and justice.

And Radcliffe has proven that he can handle more than just Hogwarts adventures with roles in movie like Horns and Swiss Army Man.

It’s certainly an interesting rumour and we all know if there’s one thing Marvel/Disney do well, it’s cast their characters.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
