Fans have been wanting Marc Spector Moon Knight to either appear in the MCU or on the Marvel TV shows, and now it’s learned it was this close to happening on Netflix. M. Raven Metzner, a writer on the Marvel Netflix Iron Fist series, fielded questions earlier on Twitter, with a fan asking about his …
Following the Avengers 4, anything could be possible as apparently the MCU will be introducing a boat load of new characters. Kevin Feige recently confirmed Nova may be on the top of their list, and now mention is made of Moon Knight. “Yes,” Kevin Feige conrfirmed when asked about the potential for Moon Knight in the …
Obvious spoiler warning is in effect.
One potential Easter Egg not listed might be some sort of reference to Moon Knight as a user on reddit spotted the following:
“Daredevil” Season 2 stars (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Jon Berntha (Frank Castle), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson).
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.

Let the guessing games begin.
It’s learned John Ridley, the Oscar-winning writer-producer behind 12 Years A Slave and ABC’s American Crime, is developing a new Marvel TV series.
EW.com broke the news, offering Ridley is reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property for ABC, but the character and title is unknown.
It’s also unknown if this is related the recent news that Marvel is creating an Agents Of SHIELD spinoff.
If Ridley is on that, it’s possible he would be doing a series about one of the characters from SHIELD (Deathlok?).
Marvel seems to be sticking with their street-level characters, so perhaps Ridley could be going with a Cloak and Dagger series or maybe even Moon Knight.
If at first you don’t succeed …
How many starts does this make for the pale Avenger since debuting in Werewolf By Night? Even I, a longtime fan of both, have lost count.
But the name of Warren Ellis has always symbolized quality to me, and that is what brings me to these pages now. (Sorry, Mr. Bendis.) And although there was more that I was hoping for, more that I wanted out of this first foray, I was not disappointed. Ellis begins the new adventures of the slightly whacked-out batman in spades.
Before you know it, Ellis has given you all the information you need to begin your nighttime adventures with Moon Knight. More than once in the script, Ellis reminds you that our hero is insane, shaken not stirred. But it does not matter because the adventure the writer takes you on is so engrossing you do not even worry about the fact.
It is in reestablishing Moon Knight’s status quo – and this is not the first time for that, as we know – that Ellis falls a bit short here. I was hoping for a clearer picture of today’s cowled crusader and how he may be different from previous incarnations. It is apparent this will be a Moon Knight of the street, but also of the noir nighttime tales his like (Batman, DD, Punisher) favor.
And the art by Declan Shalvey …! I thought previous iterations were beautiful, but Shalvey’s hold on Ellis’ script makes me think they may want to retitle his credit to “co-creator.” From front to back, Shalvey captures the tone Ellis is seeking and never lets go. Projecting emotions onto the facial countenance of a masked star is not easy, but Shalvey has no problem.
Simply a great and classy debut issue. Golden … or at least moon silver.
The “DOC’s” Top Of The Pile
By: Chris “DOC” Bushley
(A weekly quick pick of the five titles that should reside at the top of your pull list. In no particular order!)
I do the research, you reap the reward! Before you head out to your favorite shop today, be sure to add these five books to your list of goodies. Forget that apple a day nonsense, this “DOC’s” prescription to good health begins with these top five books of the week!
1. Moon Knight #10: Echo is dead, Moon Knight is in a hospital under police custody and Madame Masque has set her sights on retrieving the stolen Ultron armor! This book may be going out, but Bendis is definitely having it go out with a — BANG!
2. Invincible #89: Invincible goes Ultimate Spidey style with this one and the status quo will never be the same again! Kirkman brings the cosmic back to the forefront — at least one company does! Check out the full review.
3. The Walking Dead #94: Kirkman does it again and sets us all up for a world of hurt! Is Jesus truly a peace bringer or a “piece” bringer? Only time will tell but it all starts here! Check ou my full review for more speculation! Full review!
4. Tiny Titans #49: The penultimate book of the Eisner award winning series by Art Baltazar and Franco! The all “Squishy” issue is the perfect read for parents and children that incorporates current storylines into their banter. Like how Beast Boy and Robin discuss how Superman no longer wears “red undies” on his costume! Aw Yeah Titans!
5. Justice League #6: This is the best of the best and the type of story that reminds us how good comics can be! Plus, a back up story featuring Pandora and The Phantom Stranger! Does Pandora look a little familiar to anyone else or is it just me? Maybe I’m just over Zealous! Check out my review here!
While we await the official Marvel Solicits for April, which come out tomorrow, a few of the solicits have made their way on to the web via a retailer website.
Notable is the solicit for Moon Knight #12, which reads in part:
The Conclusion Of Marvelâ€™s Maddest Mercenary Moon Knight Is Here! After All Heâ€™s Been Through, Will There Be Anything Left Of The One-Man Avenger?
Update: Bendis confirms the cancellation on the BendisBoards, and says that he was only signed on for 12 issues:
If I do recall, our very own Timelord touched upon this back in Feb ‘011 while Marvel was placing Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy on “hiatus”:
Here’s a taste:
I also seem to recall this is the reason Bendis banned the CBN twitter account from following him.
Wow! That pretty much sums up the second installment of Bendis’ and Maleev’s re-launch of Moon Knight. Just plain-WOW! Marc Spector is back in action on the mean streets of Los Angeles. Someone has been smuggling in Ultron parts and he needs to get to the bottom the situation before it gets any worse. It’s …
The band of Bendis and Maleev is once again together to bring us a character that has had more re-launches than schizophrenic identities over the years. And I have to tell you, all my trepidation regarding this character was put to ease by this talented duo. The first of Marvel's "Big Shots" sets the bar …
