Jed MacKay is quickly establishing himself as one of Marvel Comics’ most popular authors and next on his list is a Moon Knight Comic. After doing a few stories for Spider-Verse and the Man Without Fear series, in the beginning, he has recently been writing high-profile Marvel books including Black Cat, Taskmaster, Avengers Mech Strike, and the forthcoming Infinite Destinies Annuals.
Now we learn that he will be writing a new Moon Knight comic book series for Marvel Comics, which will debut in July. After all, he’s been thinking a lot about the character lately. In a Tweet, MacKay alluded to it when he said, “Looking at Moon Knight: Fist of Khonshu, it’s weird because I don’t really like how Warner and Cruz draw Moon Knight, but I love the beefy Fist of the North Star/ Crying Freeman energy they bring to Marc Spector.”
More information on the Moon Knight Comic and what we speculate
There is a lot of excitement going around in the Comic Book industry as we just got word Keanu Reeves will be starring in the BZRKR Adaptation on Netflix, now this news. MacKay will be joined by Alessandro Cappuccio, an Italian comics artist who has worked on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and VE Schwab’s Shades Of Magic series. Who, a few years ago, was putting together Marvel test pages which appear to have paid off.
Currently, Moon Knight is in the preproduction phase according to our sources at Marvel Studios. We also know there will be six episodes so far for the first season. The show stars Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, Ethan Hawke Rumored to be the main villain, and May Calamawy who is rumored to be Marlene Alraune who is significant in the Moon Knight Comics and the character’s origin story.
Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin for Werewolf by Night #32 in August 1975, but he went on to have a series with Neal Adams and Bill Sienkiewicz that was later successful. Marc Spector, a former boxer, Marine, CIA agent, and mercenary, was nearly killed after his boss, Raoul Bushman, deceived him when they came across an archaeological dig that Bushman wanted to rob for profit.
