Moon Knight is set to take the highlight as the next major MCU project for Disney+. Alongside lead star Oscar Isaac, who will be playing Marc Spector AKA Moon Knight, another actor who will make his debut in the MCU is Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow.
Now that Moon Knight is an inch away from its release, the show was already bombarded with lots of rumors in the past weeks, including an appearance of Mark Ruffalo's Hulk in the upcoming series.
Moon Knight's production team together with lead star Oscar Isaac already debunked this rumor in past interviews, Ethan Hawke finally breaks his silence on the Hulk cameo.
Ethan Hawke sat down as a guest for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss his role in the upcoming Disney+ series.
When asked about Mark Ruffalo's involvement in the series, Hawke directly responded, "That would be cool, right? That would be cool. Except I know Mark Ruffalo, and I think if we were in the same show, he would have at least texted me or something. So I don’t think that one’s got a lot of legs. [Audience groans ] I know, I know. Maybe in another one!"
Well, it looks like Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner is totally out of the picture for Moon Knight. In a recent interview, Producer Grant Curtis revealed the show's connection to the entire MCU, saying "There’s no attachment to the current MCU. He’s brand-new, and he is going on a brand-new adventure."
Moon Knight is reportedly an origin story for Marc Spector and no other MCU character is confirmed to appear. However, it would make sense if Bruce Banner comes up to help the MCU newcomer, especially how Banner is a substantial character to the entire MCU. Either Banner could help Spector with his mental health disorder, or go on his side dealing with the mystical creatures.
For Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Banner will be back in the upcoming She-Hulk series, which is also slated for 2022.
Moon Knight will be streaming on Disney+ on March 30.
