Joe and Anthony Russo might have said that they’re planning to take a short break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that they’re done with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, however, it seems like the directorial dup wants to get their hands on Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series, Moon Knight.
Speaking in an interview with Inverse, the Russo Brothers were asked about what particular Disney+ Marvel series they would be interested to work on. Marvel is working on a slew of series for Disney’s upcoming streaming site. This includes shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye, What If....?, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight.
According to the filmmakers, the project they’re most interested in is Marc Spector’s.
"Moon Knight would be fun," Joe Russo said. "It’s hard to say because we’re in the middle of Cherry right now. We’re on location in Cleveland shooting at the moment. But anything Marvel does is going to be special. And we’ve had such an amazing working relationship with them that I’m sure we’re all gonna find something to come back together."
For those who aren’t familiar with the character, Moon Knight is a superhero that struggles with amoral inclinations and multiple personalities. In the comics, he starts as a CIA operative who finds himself dying in the harsh Egyptian desert at the hands of a terrorist extremist named Bushman. Somehow after making it into a nearby ancient tomb, Spector rose up from the dead. He takes on the costumed identity Moon Knight since then.
