Moon Knight Casting Call

Posted by Danial79 (2325 posts) - - Show Bio

Seeing as I doubt we'll get a Moon Knight film any time in the near future, I thought it would be fun to fantasise about who I'd like to see cast if one was getting made:

Marc Spector

Jensen Ackles

I don't know why, but any time I have ever envisioned Marc as a real person, this is the guy I see. Not sure if he knows any martial arts, but they could always use a body-double for his Moon Knight scenes.

Marlene Alraune

Charlize Theron

Charlize is no stranger to action, and I think she has that model-esque figure that Marlene is typically drawn with.

Jean-Paul "Frenchie" DuChamp

Jean Dujardin

To be honest, I don't actually know of this guy. I just Googled French actors, and I felt he looked the part :P

Raoul Bushman

Michael Jai White

This guy just has a screen-presence that is made for superhero movies. Imagine him with some white face paint, speaking with an African accent. Perfect.

The Profile

Sam Rockwell

I'm sure David Finch already had Mr. Rockwell in mind when drawing The Profile. Their similarity is just too similar.

Anyone Else?

Is there anyone else you would like to see in a Moon Knight movie? Who would you like to play them?

I really, really, really like Sam Rockwell as The Profile.

Genius idea.

@Danial79: idk, Jensen looks to much of a pretty boy,

maybe someone like Sam Worthington, gruff looking yet looks great in a suit

@Superguy0009e: I think he looks gruff enough with a bit of stubble :)

I could see Sam Worthington too though. Nice pick.

He plays such a great sleaze-bag as well :)

Also, would you mind Rob being in this movie?

If so, who would play him?

(I'm no good at fan-casts).

@InnerVenom123: Yeah, why not. Not sure who could play him though. He's only a minor character, so I don't think his casting would matter as much.

Great picks I would throw in Richard Belzer or Christopher walken as Crawly. I would like to see what Vincent Cassel could do with Frenchie or The Profile Steve Buscemi would be good for The Profile. Michael Jai White I real like but not as a villian I think someone like acting chops I don't know who.

@KenTheProfile: With a wig, Richard Belzer would certainly look the part of Crawley.

Raises hand.

But the way Moon Knight gets treated, we will never see a Moon Knight movie, which is a shame. And if they did, they would probably do the character no justice, kinda like the Art of Maleev, and the writing of Bendis to a certain extent. :(

Moon knight: Sam Witwer (doomsday on smallville)

Marlene Alraune: Sarah Carter (killing Zelda Sparks)

Vincent Cassel: Frenchie

Lance Henrikson: Crawley

Taraji P. Henson: Gina

Jon Hamm: Black Spectre

I have no Idea who should play Bushman.

Minka Kelly as Maya Lopez (despite that she's technically DD's universe)

If they decided to make a film version of Bendis' series, I would be crying myself to sleep every night. As such, it's comforting to know that they couldn't because Cap, Spidey, and Wolverine are all owned by separate companies :)
