James Gunn has a great idea for a Moon Knight movie… and has pitched it to Marvel

January 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments


So, we all liked Guardians of the Galaxy and we can’t wait for Vol 2, am I right?

So, imagine if the man who made Guardians of the Galaxy a household name – director James Gunn – had an idea for a Moon Knight movie, but just didn’t have time to do it…

Wait, who is Moon Knight?

Well, he’s a vigilante who “gains enhanced strength, endurance, and reflexes at night, reaching his pinnacle during a full moon, and sometimes has prophetic visions.”

His real name is Marc Spector and he looks like that image above, so he’s a bit of a badass and could be Marvel’s answer to Batman.

However, Gunn said he’s too busy to make the movie himself but has said he’s given the idea to Marvel which means that there’s an idea for a movie Moon Knight which Marvel are bound to have listened to since Gunn is the golden boy at Marvel and, well obviously, there’s a Moon Knight movie being discussed for the MCU.

We reckon that’s pretty awesome… what about you?

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….
